I've been thinking a lot lately about how people show their love for one another. An ongoing issue between my husband and me is that we misinterpret -- or miss altogether -- each other's signals. He think he's being expressive and I think he's being cold. I believe I'm giving him space and he wonders if I'm mad about something. It's hard!
But one gesture he offers that I actually pick up on is when he makes smoothies. He takes bananas, yogurt and frozen fruit and turns them into delicious concoctions that are the best things I eat. I realize they're sort of a pain to make, so when he surprises me with one in the morning, I know it means something. And I take it as "I love you."
