it’s not chocolate, it’s birdseed!

I know it LOOKS like chocolate, but actually….it’s sunflower seeds.  Just what you little birdies like.

I didn’t get chocolate either.

But I did get a text message.  It said, “I love u.  Will you be my Valentine?”

And I said, “always.”

And I thought, “always and always and always.”

One time, I got earrings and a necklace for Valentine’s Day.

I found them after he left for work, in the dishwasher!

Funny thing about life, is after a while you realize that nothing is more important than love.

Love is a lot more important than expectations.

Love is shown in many many different ways, without even trying.

When he only has eyes….for you.

When he wrestles on the floor with the kids at the end of the day.  That’s love.  You made those kids together and he loves them.

When he calls you on the phone because he hasn’t heard from you yet because he loves you.

When he doesn’t complain as he falls asleep with the light on because you’re reading a book.  It’s love.

When he calls you beautiful like it’s your name.  Love.

When you tell him what to do and he laughs, because he likes to hear you get bossy.

Love.

One seed at a time, please.

One blessing at a time.  One thank you at a time.  One moment at a time.

You chickadees sure are friendly.  Please try to send over a cardinal, won’t you?

He would match the fiesta pie plate so nicely.

In the meantime, thank you for stopping by.

I love you, little birdies.

I love all of you.
