Those who’d like to participate in Five Minute Friday will write for five minutes on the topic of the week, post it on their own blog and link up the post here. This is meant to be a free write, which means: no editing, no over-thinking, no worrying about perfect grammar or punctuation.
This week’s prompt is: CARE
He smiles at me, gives me a little snort and a giggle, and then gently leans his head against me – barely touching. This is how he shows love. This is how he shows he cares.
When I’m overtired and get a bit whimpery as I’m trying to get him down for the night, he sits up, looks at me with those grey eyes that reflect my own, and just leans his head against me.
I admit, it usually does help tremendously. I kiss his head, wrap my arms around him, and just rock him. He’s too young still to really reciprocate the hugs. For now, the head lean will do. I understand what he means by it.
And sometimes, it’s just enough.
