Daily Photo post #86
What is love? Is it flowers and candles and dates to the movies? Is it love notes and whispered nothings and inside jokes? Or is it defending someone no matter what you think of their opinion? Well over the years I would have answered yes to each of these... However recently I have seen a different show of love by many around me...
Jim who has woken up in the middle of the night because I had a rare nightmare and stayed up the rest of the night stroking my hair.
Dobby who would happily turn himself inside out to show me how much he loves me each and every time I walk into his presence.
And then finally in the most odd of places - Punkin who has finally decided that she loves us. She has been showing us in the oddest of ways - sleeping on the arm of the couch we are sitting on, purring in the middle of the night for no reason and recently bringing us presents... 4 days ago a mouse on the front walkway, 3 days ago a mouse on the back porch, and last night a beautiful bird in my hallway(!) (she brought it in through the dog door). As sweet a gift as any of the above because I know it means she is finally happy here and loves us. That said it has to stop so now I will work on that (taking ideas for sure).
But meanwhile I lit a candle for those sweet little sacrifices...
