that’s a lovely view.

We had a good time at Firefly’s parents’ house. We played cards, did a little fishing, ate a lot of good food, and I took some pictures.

While we were fishing I stopped by the chair where her mom was resting and we started chatting. We had decided not to take our poles with us so we were using Firefly’s dad’s, and they were in a bit of disarray. So her mom says to me, “you know, that would be a good gift for your father-in-law; a new fishing pole.”

Let me just say that again.

She suggested it would be a good gift…for my father-in-law. She has never, ever called him that before, never categorized or recognized our relationship in quite that way. It made me so happy my heart jumped.

And now, I leave this brief post with a photo of last night’s view:

    Awww. Sometimes it’s the little things, the offhanded comments, that show how someone feels, and mean the most.
