Today is my 18th Wedding Anniversary - It is hard to believe that I have been married to my best friend for 18 years. We are very opposite - I am short, he is tall. I love to run, he hates to run. I love animals, he likes animals. I am quick to anger, he never gets mad. I could argue with a rock, he will not argue. I like vegetables and he likes meat.
Tonight the Big Man cooked dinner (I had a late medical staff meeting). Steaks, green beans, and corn on the cob. The steaks were cooked to perfection - the problem is..... I couldn't hardly stand to eat my steak after seeing calves headed to slaughter yesterday.
We were driving home from Gulf Shores, Alabama when we pulled up beside a cattle trailer with four little black calves - they looked like this little fellow.
I got to thinking about how they would end up on someones table and started to cry - The Big Man knows how I am, he doesn't say a word, simple squeezes my hand and shakes his head.
So, what do I do know???? Quit eating meat? Live on Vegetables? Some people do. Oh! why did I look those little fellows in the eye...
Now to spend time with the love of my life - the Big Man
