This Mama Frog has been a little blue lately, which is not such a good color. I have been feeling down and underappreciated and like all that I am doing is an exercise in futitlity. But I got my new camera in on Tuesday and so yesterday, I decided to actively document what LOVE looks like during my ordinary old days.
So for those interested- this is what we do all day. We love….
THIS IS WHAT LOVE LOOKS LIKE
The Boy snuck into the dog biscuits to make a stockpile for his little dog, because “Mom, he loves them so much.”
The Boy and Scoot playing Minecraft together before the big sisters wake up.
The first egg of the morning, still warm.
One sweet hen peeking out.
Yesterday was “I love The Boy” Day. What “I Love You” day is complete without fresh doughnuts?
Especailly when you split them in half and fill them with homemade whipped cream and strawberries.
Sometimes love looks like freshly liberated chickens, released for a morning snack by one Tiny Tadpole who waits impatiently every morning to see his “Chick chicks.”
Love can also look like gently shooing chickens from your garden while they scold you for interrupting their snack.
Love looks like a sidearmed hug to a little brother.
It can also like a kiss for your canine buddy.
Love is two sisters on a hammock, talking and laughing together.
Love is making faces while your big sis tries to pose pretty.
Love is explaining why Raph-O is your favorite Ninja Turtle Ever.
Because he is super cool…
And because he is…
Red and red is The Boy’s favorite color.
Love is always grand…
But its even better when it multiplies.
And even a little more.
Love is a boy and his dog.
Because every boy needs a best friend.
Love is rescued chickens getting a pedicure.
Especailly when they are crazy wild.
And are being held by a big girl who is almost in tears at the sight of their feet.
I am glad we rescued them too.
Love is discovering new things, like these baby spiders on the web.
And new blooms on a Mother’s Day rose bush.
Love is three sisters who are feeling better after their pedicure.
Love is a duck egg. Used in the ice cream, picked out by kids who just wanted to try them. Love is saving the shells to share with friends.
Love is not one big thing. Love is made up of 5 million tiny things during the day. What does love look like for you today?
