Coffee and Flower

coffee and flower 2019_sm

 

There are days where you feel like everything in your life is falling apart.  This day was like that to me.  From the beginning to end, everything was just not right.  I had a headache all day long.  I couldn’t do anything constructive.  I was upset.  And the fact that I was upset made me even more upset.  Before I went to bed, my husband insisted me to watch our current favorite show with him. That helped me go to sleep a bit easier.

The next morning, he told me that he took a day off.  And he spent all day cheering me up.  I still had a headache so I took a nap.  While I was sleeping, I heard a doorbell and the soft growl of our dog.  I opened my eyes a couple of minutes later and there were a big bunch of colorful flowers in front of me with a short but very sweet note from my husband.  I thanked him and went back to sleep. The nap wasn’t the same.  I slept much better.

The following day, I was able to manage the day as normally as others.  I was in a decent mood and fighting hard with this smoke in my head.  My husband called me and said he had a meeting near the house and was coming home for a second to say hi.  He called me again to ask me for help bringing some stuff from the car.  When I went out to meet him, he let me hold his coffee for him. I grabbed it without any thought.  A few seconds later I realized that it was hot.  ‘He never drinks hot coffee’ I thought.  I yelled with a big smile.  ‘It’s hot coffee!’ He smiled back at me and said ‘Yup!’.

I drank the coffee while working on my art after he went back to work.  The flowers are gone too.  It had brightened my days for more than a week.  It is a blessing to have someone who truly looks after you.  He helped me glue the falling day back together.

I knew I wouldn’t be able to enjoy the flowers fully. I’d leave Japan before they wilt. I decided to make a drawing of the flowers with a few art materials I brought with me. I wanted to give him something for the flowers and wanted to keep the flowers forever.

I’m glad I made the drawing. When I look at it, I remember the moment I received the flowers more clearly than could by looking at the picture. Perhaps because I took more time and poured my energy into making the drawing than snapping a picture.

One day my husband brought me flowers. I was bit confused if it was a special day that I forgot. He said he wanted to surprise me. He said he doesn’t want to give me flowers when everybody tells him to on such occasions like Valentine’s day. He still brings me flowers on random days. It never fails to make me smile.
