Thank you for the 1,001 things of loving another

Making, bringing, going out for, inviting to, sitting with, stopping to get, having ready when someone wakes up, and treating to coffee or food or…

Lending pajamas or slippers or jackets or…

Listening to stories, complaints, jokes, reasons, daily plans, questions about the universe, great ideas, fears, sorrows, music you never heard before…

Looking at and genuine interest in old pictures, hand made projects, paintings, poems, and other personal creations…

Surprising with donuts, jewelry, a visit, a gift, a card in the mail, an accolade, a sneak-up-on-you-spasm-of-affection…

Offering a place to stay, toilette paper, support, help with overwhelming tasks, your last bite of pie, your hand to hold, a band-aid, your time, information…

Sharing a good book, personal thoughts and feelings, anything in your house, your family, your pets, your front porch, a long drive, your voice, your favorite dish, your best effort…

Please fill in the… until they add up to 1,001.
Thank you
