Love Note no. 1
There are a million ways to show your love.
But ask yourself this-
Do your eyes light up when your love walks in the room?
I first heard Toni Morrison mention this during an interview years ago. And it stuck with me.
It is a subtle thing- just a tiny glance. But it can mean everything.
I know the feeling of that glance in my bones. Every time I go home, my mother greets me with a look that makes me feel like I am the only thing that has ever mattered. I witness it every time my sister looks at her baby as if he really, actually is an angel.
Greeting someone with light in your eyes not only says- I love you.
But it says- I see you.
And that is what we all yearn for.
It can all happen in less than 10 seconds. And you get a million chances.
So next time someone you love walks into the room, let your eyes light up.
(babies are really good at it. and dogs are pure genius at this too)
