Forgotten Anniversary


October 9, 2017. It's halfway through my work day with no mention nor comment, not even an "I love you," before he left for work. No indication he even knows; though less than a month ago we had the conversation, for the fourth time, on when our anniversary is. I've gotten him a card, thoughtfully written inside, and his favorite handcrafted chocolates from our local creamery. He knows that things like this are important to me, even something simple is enough; knowing he remembers and cares is more important than the size, quantity or cost of any gift. Once again I'm left wondering, "am I enough?"
