Love and friendship, like precious diamonds, have many facets than cannot observed with the naked eye. Sometimes we forget that ALL facets are equally essential to the unique brilliance we desire....When the little things cease to be important, we begin to lose the luster...... til one day we wake up and wonder how we ended up with a dull piece of glass.....
What inspired me to write these words? I don't remember. But I do know from personal experience they are key maintaining a long, meaningful relationship.
My son is getting married.....
For months, my daughter has been working on creating the perfect scrapbook for the bride and groom to be. Pages and pages of advice, pictures, quotes, and words of wisdom from friends and family members.
Of course, being procrastination queen, I've yet to finish mine, and am in a time crunch.
I have words that endlessly twirl in my brain; pages I've written, only to be tossed aside.
This is important, and I am kind of liking the words I wrote above.
After all, isn't it little things that count? ....the smile, the caress, the kind words, the gratitude, the " not going to bed angry", the I'm sorry's , the listening, the sharing , the forgiveness.....the making time for each other, even when the rest of the world seems out of control.
So, while I haven't still haven't decided all my "my page" will entail, I do it will include
Remembering the little things, and keeping the luster alive.
