DATE WITH A WOMAN (PART 2 OF 2)

 

I am sure you do not want to miss this first part.

 

‘It was I who used to have to Read the Menu when you were small,’ she said. ‘Then it’s Time that you Relax and let me Return the Favor,’ I responded.

During the Dinner, we had an Agreeable Conversation, nothing Extra-ordinary, but catching up on recent Events of each other’s Life. We talked so much that we missed the Movie.

As we arrived at her House later, she said, ‘I’ll go out with you again, but only if you let me invite you.’ I agreed.

‘How was your Dinner Date?’ asked My Wife when I got Home. ‘Very Nice. Much more so than I could have imagined,’ I answered.

A few days later, my Mother died of a Massive Heart Attack.

It happened so suddenly that I didn’t have Time to do anything for her. Sometime later, I received an Envelope with a Copy of a Restaurant Receipt from the same place Mother and I had dined.

An Attached Note Said:

‘I paid this Bill in Advance.

 I wasn’t sure that I could be there;

But nevertheless, I paid for Two Plates.

One for You and the Other for Your Wife.

 You will never know what that Night meant for Me.

I Love You, My Son.’

At that moment, I understood the Importance of saying in Time: ‘I LOVE YOU!’ and to give our Loved Ones the Time that they deserve.

Nothing in Life is more important than God and your Family.

Give them the Time they deserve, because these Things cannot be Put Off till ‘Some Other Time.’

An Amazing Love Story of Salted Coffee (Part 1 of 2)

 

He met her on a party. She was so outstanding, many guys chasing after her, while he so normal, nobody paid attention to him.

At the end of the party, he invited her to have coffee with him, she was surprised, but due to being polite, she promised. They sat in a nice coffee shop, he was too nervous to say anything, she felt uncomfortable, she thought, please, let me go home…. suddenly he asked the waiter. “Would you please give me some salt? I’d like to put it in my coffee.”

Everybody stared at him, so strange! His face turned red, but still, he put the salt in his coffee and drank it.

She asked him curiously; why you have this hobby? He replied: “when I was a little boy, I was living near the sea, I like playing in the sea, I could feel the taste of the sea, just like the taste of the salty coffee. Now every time I have the salty coffee, I always think of my childhood, think of my hometown, I miss my hometown so much, I miss my parents who are still living there”. While saying that tears filled his eyes. She was deeply touched.

That’s his true feeling, from the bottom of his heart. A man who can tell out his homesickness, he must be a man who loves home, cares about home, has responsibility of home.

Then she also started to speak, spoke about her faraway hometown, her childhood, her family. That was a really nice talk, also a beautiful beginning of their story.

They continued to date. She found that actually he was a man who meets all her demands; he had tolerance, was kind-hearted, warm, careful. He was such a good person but she almost missed him! Thanks to his salty coffee!

DATE WITH A WOMAN (PART 1 OF 2)

 

After 21 years of Marriage, my Wife wanted me to take another Woman out to Dinner and a Movie.

She said I Love You but I know this other Woman loves you and would Love to spend some Time with You.

The other Woman that my Wife wanted me to visit was my MOTHER, who has been a Widow for 19 years, but the demands of my Work and my three Children had made it possible to visit her only occasionally.

That night I called to invite her to go out for Dinner and a Movie. ‘What’s wrong, are you well,’ she asked?

My Mother is the type of Woman who suspects that a Late Night Call or a Surprise Invitation is a sign of Bad News.

‘I thought that it would be pleasant to be with you,’ I responded. ‘Just the two of us.’

She thought about it for a moment, and then said, ‘I would like that very much.’

That Friday after work, as I drove over to pick her up I was a bit nervous. When I arrived at her House, I noticed that she too seemed to be Nervous about our Date.

She waited in the Door with her Coat on. She had curled her Hair and was wearing the Dress that she had worn to celebrate her last Wedding Anniversary.

She smiled from a face that was as radiant as an Angel’s. ‘I told my Friends that I was going to go out with My Son, and they were impressed,’

She said, as she got into the Car. ‘They can’t wait to hear about our meeting’. We went to a Restaurant that, although not Elegant, was very nice and cozy.

My Mother took my Arm as if she were the First Lady. After we sat down, I had to read the Menu. Large Print. Half way through the entries, I lifted my eyes and saw Mom sitting there staring at me.

A Nostalgic Smile was on her Lips.
