Mustard Hearts...

Mustard Hearts...
By Gloria Faye Brown Bates/aka Granny Gee

Look closer... what do you see
A woman standing at the counter in her kitchen
She is doing something that makes her smile

Look a little closer, watch her hands
She seems to be drawing... with a squeezable mustard bottle
Drawing... mustard hearts... on slices of bread

Her hands lovingly places slices of deli meats over the mustard hearts
She places another slice of bread with a mustard heart inside
On top... a sandwich made with love from her very heart

Many years have gone by... many sandwiches her husband has eaten
Sandwiches with the words 'I LOVE YOU', and hearts... drawn, written inside every sandwich
He never knew until she one day told him... inside each sandwich you've eaten... I put my love.... by drawing mustard hearts

  1. That is so sweet!! I never thought of doing that when I was married. Lots of Mustard Love!! That is a special way of saying you love someone without being there to say it! Love, Ms. Nancy
