When I was able to pull up my outlook, and begin scanning through the long list of emails already waiting for me to start my day, I noticed one from Karen. The subject line read, "Some things you should know....." The importance level was set to "High."
I have to admit that my initial instinct was to pause and try to think about what I may have done, for which I might be in trouble; but I went ahead and clicked the email to launch the viewer.
In that instance, my entire day brightened quite a bit; and a smile spread across my face. Probably for the first time all day, with maybe the exception of the moment I hugged my daughter, as I dropped her off for school.
The content of that email was a wonderful LOVE NOTE from my wife. It was exactly what I needed, at exactly the right time. I may still have the headache, and I may still be extremely tired, but six hours later I also still have the smile that reading her note brought to my face. (It actually made me tear up just a bit, although I was certain not to let anyone here at work see that.)

Subject: Some things you should know.....
Good morning Putle.
You are my big, greasy beau hunk and I love you like no other.
You are the yin to my yang,
the nerd to my dork,
the bacon to my burger,
the crazy to my sane,
the sane to my crazy,
my morning, my day, and my night.
I love when you wrap me up in your big, strong arms for hugs and snuggles.
I especially love the snuggles :-)
I hope your day is fabulous and I can’t wait to see you when you get home.
