Day 22: Chemistry 101

I have to laugh,

because of an interesting


my husband and I

just had at a restaurant.



with the waiter

did not exist.

It isn't that you need to have


with a waiter,

but when the waiter has a


with you,

he waits on you.

It happened as soon as we sat down at the table,

as he accessed us

as he looked at the 4 top

with only the 2 of us sitting there,

which meant

lower check & lower tip~

which meant

that we didn't have


but the table next to us



with him~

as soon as they filled the 4 top

and ordered 1000 appetizers.

It was so obvious, that it was comical.

After we were finished eating,

we got his attention,

by accident,

and then he wanted


"Are you celebrating a birthday"

"Is it a special day"

"Do you want dessert"~

came rolling off his lips~

as we answered with no thank you,

even though I wanted to say it was our 50th wedding anniversary

(to throw him for a loop)

and thanks for asking!

He asked again...

Oh we had his attention,

before he would close out our check

Well we waited and waited

for our check,

as he was loving on the 4 top next to us,

and then he remembered we were there

and then we got the check

he got his tip

and we left

and I laughed

all the way home

To be so obvious

to be treated

as insignificant,

but just because

we were treated as


did not make us insignificant.

Just because we didn't have a


with the waiter

didn't make us

less than

or more than


It was just what it was~

but oh the power

of being treated as one less than,

can have in our hearts

if we forget

Whose we are.

If you disappoint someone~

it doesn't make you a disappointment

If you make a mistake~

it doesn't make you a mistake

If you

don't have


with someone,

you just don't have


with someone

Having Chemistry~

a connection with someone

a loving cherished feeling

and being treated as such


no words needed to be said


you just know

because you have
