Grace, I don’t know why I’m so surprised by what you say. You’re able to put things in a perspective that makes me really think about my life. You ask me “what do you feel now when you realize that Adam cannot compare to your dependable Merlot? Your wine membership seems to be much more savory and fulfilling than your marriage membership. How does this make you feel? Are you at a point to place Merlot in the right place in your life so you can continue to explore your inner soul?”
Relieved to get out of the house, I meet Delilah at the fast food restaurant. Her three children and mine begin playing in the indoor playground.
“What happened?” Delilah says.
I explain in a matter of fact way. I can’t show emotion because I don’t want to cry and frankly, I am still in shock. How can Adam have these indiscretions? I’m in disbelief. I just know I need to change, change what is happening, change my appearance, change. Period.
Reflecting on my love for Merlot and how much I savored its abundant flavors in my mouth, I realized I didn’t do the same for Adam’s love. As Grace, my Guardian Angel, said “Imagine allowing yourself to taste, see, touch and smell the love that is waiting for you.”
