My Love

How do you honor a relationship? What actions and thoughts make it more than a rote activity, a background for a life? It’s our 6th anniversary today and even in the midst of our insanity of life we find time to celebrate us. It’s hard to generalize on relationships, ours is so specific to us and our plans that I’m not sure the ‘recipe’ we have would be transferable. But still we thrive on time together outside, family breakfasts, giving each other lots of time to ourselves, random rainy day drives, long talks about the future, sharing the house work evenly, sharing the raising of A evenly, at least in effort if not time, cooking together, cooking for each other, reading poetry to each other, writing poetry for each other, learning about the things the other loves, supporting each of others projects and plans, and always a willingness to hug each other.
