love , its in all the little things.
I’m taking part in the theme game again over at http://www.thereadingresidence.com/ this week the theme is love
I always say I love you to the kids before They leave for school in the morning, before we go to bed, often for no reason, but now they are mostly teens I don’t always hear it back. It doesn’t trouble me, they are teenagers, its not cool to tell your parents you love them, sometimes its just not easy…
For me love is …
A hug offered when they come in the door , even when accompanied by ” come on then , you can have a hug”
A dime bar, bought as a surprise for me with their left over school money.
A cup of tea when I’m not feeling well.
Coming in the kitchen with me at night ( every night) because I’m convinced I will see a mouse again one day.
Going into the kitchen before me first thing in the morning ( the mouse thing again, I will never get over it)
Dancing with me in the kitchen.
Turning the radio up when a song they know I love comes on.
The salute Im given every night in return when I say “goodnight love you” because sometimes its just hard to say it back.
The list goes on and on. Its all the little things.
There is arguing in my house , shouting , sometimes door slamming and always nagging but we also have a house full of love, its there in all the little things.
