Five Minute Friday: Listen
It is Friday which means it is time to link up with Lisa-Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday again.
Sunny loves the birds and, therefore, it is one of his most favourite things to listen to. And I listen to them, too, because it makes me happy when he is happy. I listen to my son's voice when he imitates them and I listen when he laughs his sweet, infectious laugh. I also listen to his cries when is not well and I try my best to help him.
But, in our house, listening is not limited to the ears. We listen with everything else, too.
I listen with my eyes when he tells me without any words that he needs me, that he loves me. I listen with my hand when his tiny hand slips into mine. I listen with my skin when I feel his body next to mine. I listen with my heart when I feel the deepest love that I ever felt in my life. I listen with my feet when we walk next to each other peacefully. I listen with my arms when I carry him around. I listen with my neck when I feel his warm breath as he snuggles closely. I listen with my back when I pretend that I am a horse and he jumps around on me and makes his horse sound. I listen with my mouth as I kiss his sweet lips.
Whatever you say, however you say it. I will always be there to listen to you.
