We have a House Motto…. a novelty mass produced postcard we bought on holiday many years ago which has pride of place in the kitchen. It goes
A little love, a little kindness,
A little hug, a little smile,
A little thank you, a little forgiveness,
A little understanding, a little kiss.
Hubby and I celebrate a quarter of a century together next year, which I suppose seems to be quite a feat these days. As with most couples over time though, we’ve become more like an old pair of comfy slippers and I tend to forget to say the important things sometimes.
So Honey, this is for you (and all those partners of ‘absent minded’ partners like me)
Love could pay the bills, we’d live in a mansion
Kisses were water, we’d never be thirsty
Smiles were sunshine, we’d be permanently tanned and warm
Hugs were food, we’d dine like kings every day
Trust was material, we’d be wearing the finest clothes.
Tolerance was shoes, our feet would never hurt.
Loyalty was building friendships, our house would never be empty.
Dreams were currency, we would always have more than enough.
I have all of these things………………..with You.
