giving

I have been thinking a bit lately about how crafts, food,
etc. are love. When you make something for someone, and
really put your all into that , whatever it might be, you
are communicating with them on a deeper level than simply
telling them you love them. Not a profound thought,
perhaps, but something I've been thinking about lately.

The little gestures that reveal the world inside

It's important, too, I think that when you give something,
you give it unconditionally. I struggle with this at times.
I expect a reaction or something, and if it doesn't come,
or doesn't appear in just the way I expect, then I am let
down. That's so unfair. The act of giving is in itself
beautiful, the reward intrinsic.
