Puttered around here and there and cooked a barbeque pork chop dish for diner that was delicious. While the pork chops were in the oven, I called Daniel and we were lovey dovey for a while then the mood turned somber. Before we were able to address what was wrong, the pork chops were ready to come out of the oven. So, Daniel and I ended the call on a less than happy note.
I couldn't get the feeling out of my head that there was something wrong and were needed to talk about it. I served up dinner and brought mine right back to my room and called Daniel back. He was surprised to hear back from me so soon. He asked me what I was thinking and I told him that I was trying to read his mind but couldn't. That allowed us to bring the problem out into the open and address it. The second conversation went very well and I'm pleased with how it turned out. Daniel was glad that I coaxed the problem out into the open. I'm glad too.
It was late and the hospital was quieting down, so we said our loving goodbyes. I felt happy, but I'm still concerned about the topic. I feel as if it might not be completely put to rest. We both felt good about what was said and we both were happy when we hung up. Tomorrow will tell for sure when we talk again.
Great communication skills are definitely something that we have in our relationship.
