Cold hands and Warm Heart

I have a gift.

At least, that is what my darling dearest tells me.

The ability to still function with a body temperature below 0°C.

I don’t know if I call it a gift, but, I sure do it well!

He reached over to hold my hand…a romantic gesture that nearly had him in ICU for frostbite. But, instead of recoiling he offered me the other one too. He’s good like that.

“How do you do it?”, he asked as he wrapped my cold digits in his warmth.

I clung to him like a life-raft knowing from experience that warmth will soon start to flow. And while things are heating up in the physical department I have a VERY warm heart despite the cold hands.

#Grateful for his continuing kindness.
