Love is

doing the dishes

making dinner

I have recently been thinking often about
my mother and what it must have been
like taking care of 6 children
day in and out.
The very first and most prevalent image is one of
her standing at either the sink or the stove
calmly and quietly washing. . or cooking. for HOURS . every single day.
and these images alone make me
feel so loved. so cared for. and they truly
melt my heart.

because of my mother
i see doing the dishes. . as love. what love LOOKS like.

What does love look like to you? ? :)
