We’ve got boring and crazy and irritating…joyful and painful and ordinary…exciting and silly and run of the mill.

And sometimes we have the little things.  Visit tomorrow’s Forever Family post to read about one of those times (and to ask those burning questions).

“Some folks go for the big, flashy stuff.  Skywriting on their anniversary.  Dancing flash mob proposals.  Billboards declaring eternal love and undying loyalty.

Kids can fall into the big and flashy trap, too.  Planning enormous breakfasts in bed for Mother’s Day or wanting to buy expensive presents at Christmas.  They forget the little things like macaroni necklaces and hugs are just as special, even more so when they show up at that moment when life feels especially hard.”
