Love right now is…
A husband who makes Mexican black beans and fish tacos like he owned a restaurant.
A wife who sometimes doesn’t want to sleep because it’s more fun to be awake together.
A husband who gets up at 5:45 am to buy the best organic tomatoes at the market before they’re gone.
A wife who sees her husband across the room and still feels giddy.
A husband who reaches out to hold hands each day while walking our pup.
A wife who melts to see him be so dang loving with our little furry girl.
A husband who never, ever, ever makes me feel dumb – not even once.
A wife who can’t wait to see her husband each morning. Even though I see him everyday.
A husband who runs a green smoothie bar in our kitchen.
A wife who thanks her husband profusely for being so good to her.
A husband who smiles. A lot.
A wife who cuddles. A lot.
A furry girl who can’t get enough of us both.
This is our little family of 3.
What is love feeling like to you today?
It is my hope that you have some love in your life that you can feel and identify – no matter what stage of life you are in. It’s so powerful to recognize it and to seek out the good. When I was single, love was my Brooklyn littles drawing me pictures that I hung on my wall. It was my neighbors who asked about my life. It was my parents who wanted to keep me company by phone. At other times during my first marriage, it was me laying in bed feeling rejected with a sting in my heart and feeling pain that no one knew about – and trying with all my might to love myself and see worth in myself, exactly as I was.
