Life without love is like a tree without blossoms or fruit- Khalil Gibran
Have you ever chopped carrots while your teary-eyed husband dices the onions and just as you present your most convincing counter argument about why its not your turn to load the dishwasher you suddenly look at the scene as though from outside yourself and find this exceptionally ordinary moment suddenly immeasurably beautiful? Or saw Boy Meets World or a box of Bimbo in the bread aisle or sat down alone for a cup of tea and suddenly realize a day's drive is too far to be from those who are part of what makes life worth living? Lil' bro, you must be rolling your eyes as I get sentimental on what's admittedly a terribly over marketed holiday but with all there is to stress and lose sleep over, I can't help but be thoughtful, and thankful, for the loves of my life.
