Loving as serving

Making a new batch of Muddy Buddies every time I run out,
       without judgment or query

Cleaning up our own muddy buddy
       without disdain or distaste

Hiding under a blanket
for hours
and
taking a 2-year-old
to the zoo

Fetching me a drink
from the fridge
and
a toothbrush
for the kid

Cleaning the place
for your mother-in-law
and
hanging up
my shirts

Knowing my love language
       even when I don't

And even though it's not your language,
       speaking it fluently.

I knew that slipping the love potion into the Muddy Buddies would work!!

This is beautiful, Amanda--both the love and the artist expression of it. Have I told you lately how much you inspire me to write? Well, if I haven't, then I'm telling you now!
