20130215-134645.jpgI feel loved when someone sends me an article or a recipe they think I will enjoy, or tells me something they think my kids would like.

I feel loved when someone asks me to do something small for them – to watch one of their kids for a minute while they change a diaper.

I feel loved when we’re invited on outings or to events with friends.

I feel loved when someone volunteers to watch our kids so we can go out.

I feel loved when I am part of a community.

I feel loved when someone responds to me, when I feel heard and seen and appreciated.

And I feel loved when I can do the same for others: when I can share something with them, or when I can take joy in their lives and their children, or when I can let them get me out of a tight spot, or when I can help create a community, or when I can show people how glad I am to know them, that I am thinking of them, that they are important to me.

What are the little things that you make you feel loved? What are the little things you do to show your love in real life?20130215-134828.jpg
