She's Got A Way With Words

Anniversary weekend.  Kids were away at the grandparents, and the lovely Mrs. Robb and I were sitting around a fire out back behind out temporary townhouse.

"I'm so grateful for the life we've forged together", she said.

I told her I appreciated that particular word - "forged".

She asked why.

I said "Some people might have said grown, or found, or built, or nurtured, or developed.  You chose to say we took life, threw it into a fire until it was near molten, then beat it into the shape that we desired."

Gotta love a woman like that :-)
