showing love in the details

Picture of my mom in college. She still looks like this...
Breakfast is my favorite meal - always has been. And we all love cereal, but there is just something amazing about a hot breakfast... Waffles, pancakes, oatmeal, eggs, french toast, cinnamon rolls, what have you. Well, when I was a kid, my mom always made breakfast in the morning. I mean, sometimes we had cold cereal, but she knew I loved a hot breakfast, so she made them for me. This is a really important example for me of showing love in the details of our relationships. Making breakfast was a small detail, but it meant a lot to me, and it showed me that she loved me. Perhaps this is why I say, "I love you," with food. Mom, I love you back.

  1. I think breakfast is important for the soul... in an old home video from when I was really young, my sister is saying happy mother's day and in EVERY take she says, "I love that you make me breakfast."
