In Little Ways
The teenaged son that checks
the locks and windows nightly,
just because he cares and worries.
The younger one that empties the
trash cans around the house and
puts trash out to the curb, because he knows
his mom fell asleep.
The friend that drops everything
to come get your car started,
because he knows you don’t have money to fix
The friend that forgives with encouragement,
because he knows that raising children
The mom that makes blueberry muffins from
scratch, because she knows they are one
of her boy’s favorites.
Saying “I love you” is easy…
Showing love can be too.
