Gifts of Love


Okay, I’m the first to admit it I am not a morning person. If it’s up to me, I’d get up at the crack of noon almost everyday.


That is so true about you. That’s why this is so fun for me. The other morning we had to get up super early for a responsibility. The alarm went off, and I was supposed to get up first. You turned to me and in your sleepy voice said, “If you don’t want to get up yet, I’ll stay in bed.”


It made sense at the time to me.


I knew in your sleepy voice you were trying to offer me that extraordinary move of getting up first so I could sleep in.


Sometimes a gift comes out that way. The intention is there it just doesn’t sound right. Friend, think about those gifts of love even when they don’t come out right. They can still be received with an open heart.
