love looks like...

i've been thinking a lot in these last few days about the faces of love & for very good reason...D. & i celebrated our anniversary on friday. since returning from our italian trip last week, i have been walking around with that 'eyes wide open' sort of awareness (the kind that comes from a fantastic rejuvenation through travel) & love keeps coming to the foreground...the spring air is heavily ladened with it.each moment of love that i have glimpsed is indeed a rich treasure to hold in the heart, each one numbered among my 1000 gifts...
78. a friend's hand reaching to help with the heavy burden
79. that first-of-the morning cup of coffee made just the right way80. a hand held across a rough spot81. our friend spending her nights on the ICU waiting room couch to be close to her critically ill husband (who is now on the mend, thank God!!)
82. arms holding in tight embrace through devastating news
83. a girlfriend's voice at the end of the phone line saying 'i'll pray for you tonight'
84. a word of encouragement whispered at just the right moment85. a quiet passing of time with a friend when no words are necessary86. memories shared of years traveled side-by-side & dreams shared...sent heavenward on the wings of hope~~happy 21st anniversary, D...2 days late, but with love multiplied!!
