Our love is…
sharing family duties without arguing who does what around the house
the ability to read one’s mind and using it to shut up or share
playing effortless zone defense without uttering a word
saying thank you for the big moments (scraping the ice off the entire driveway) or small (wiping messy faces)
knowing that complimenting a hair cut, no matter how small the trim job, is important
starting the car in the morning so that my 10 minute drive is warm and toasty
knowing that a bag of pistachios and a Starbucks Refresher beats a box of chocolate
warming up my lunch at school each day
leaving the shower on so I can just hop in
watching you fall asleep while little E styles your hair saying, “shh mommy, papa’s sleeping”
Love is so much more than a diamond ring, a dozen roses. It is the little things everyday. I do not need a Valentine’s Day gift to know how much you love me, I have the daily, hundreds of reminders warming my heart.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
