Story A Day #4: Satisfaction

      Comments Off on Story A Day #4: Satisfaction

Depending on how you looked at it, I was doing what was expected of me.

I started with laying out everything for his breakfast, then I set out his clean clothes.

The bills were next on my list, then I assembled everything I needed to clean the house.

The kids’ homework, a birthday card for his Mom, his shirts to iron. I followed that with the magazines about house decorating, and the latest book about how to find fulfillment in your service to your family.

The evening paper next to a home-cooked meal was the finishing touch.

When I stood back and considered it all, it was quite satisfying.

Setting the pile on fire was more satisfying still.
