Monday Morning in Miami
It says something about the Cowboy and me, I think, that after 32 years of marriage we can spend 14 days continuously together and still like each other at the end of it.
On the last morning of our cruise vacation I arrived out on the deck with my buffet breakfast in hand. The Cowboy was already seated at an umbrella'd table for 4. I started to set my plate down when he gestured to the seat on his other side.
"No, no," he said, "I saved this seat for you. It's a nicer view."
So I enjoyed my breakfast facing the gorgeous view of downtown Miami Harbour in the early morning, while he looked out on the working side of a harbour - industrial buildings, cranes, and container ships.
Putting the other's interests ahead of your own, that's true love. But, actually paying attention to what those interests might be in the first place ... that's captivating.
