Grand gestures are fun. They can make the heart soar. But if they only happen once or twice a year, what’s the fun in that? Little gestures are not as splashy but they are like raindrops of love, so let your love rain down. When people lose a partner whom they’ve loved dearly, it’s not the grand gestures that they miss. It’s the little things. It’s that perfect cup of coffee in the morning. It’s loading the dishwasher and actually turning it on. I’s checking to make sure the front door is locked before you go to sleep at night. It’s the hugs. It’s holding hands at the movie show. It’s what doesn’t need be said while strolling along the seaside because their eyes say it all. Don’t just settle for few raindrops of love ask for oceans of love, because you deserve to be loved with grand waves and little waves of love.
Here is another way to look at it the little things are like the nails that hold a house together. You don’t see them, but they’re doing their work. And like nails, the little things don’t insert themselves without some help. Each one may not take a lot of energy but if you put just enough energy into the little things, over time you’ll build a great big love. You’ve been taught to say “thank you” for presents, but do you acknowledge the little presents your sweetheart gives your every day? You can never say ” thank you” too many times, thought most people don’t say it enough.
You’re not a trash can . . .
