For my 302nd act of love, I set up a dessert for us in our living room.
You left that night for a meeting, so I had time to put the kids to bed and set things up. I put candles on the table, on the chairs, on the entertainment center, and on the table/stand thingy beside the couch. Then, I took the petals from a dozen roses and arranged them on the center of our table. Finally, I prepared two bowls of ice cream, each with chocolate sauce on top and a piece of a dark chocolate bar on the side:
It got quite warm very quickly and you were concerned about burning our house down, so we blew out most of the candles before we ate.
If there’s one thing that 365 hasn’t helped, it’s our diet! So often, I resort to getting/preparing you food or dessert for my act of love. It’s partly because you enjoy it when I do these things for you and partly because I enjoy it. Anyway, in the end, this hasn’t had a real effect on our health since we’ve been conservative in our indulgence.
*Of course, the primary orientation of my heart should be toward my God. Such an orientation should motivate me to excellence in all that I do.
