It is somebody asking “How are you?” because they genuinely want the answer.
It is the surprise phone call from an old friend.
The letter that arrived in the post.
It is the faces that fit snugly into your neck.
It is the children holding hands.
The giggle you hear as you pack the lunches.
It is the nights when he opens the bedroom window to let in the cool breeze.
It is the nights when he turns on my lamp and I realise I have been reading in the dark.
The kiss at the end of the day.
It is your Mother’s embrace, your Father’s pride.
It is the gift you gave that filled someone with joy.
The words you shared that made another smile.
It is love and it is laughter and it is all those little gestures that come from the heart.
It is these very things that make or break the days, that lead to the months, that lead to the years.
So often it is all about the little things.
