I leave gifts. This year, my son got a small gift each day--think dollar bins at Target. My daughter got some small gifts and the video I mentioned in a previous post.
This year, my husband received four messages in a bottle. He's a words of affirmation guy, and there are boxes at our house full of affirming and loving words I've written him over the last 15 years. But, I wanted to try something different. So, I wrote poems. I wrote poems to a guy who doesn't always like my poems, and I wrote my first ever love poems. Here are the first two:
from our sin
and your ego.
Love always protects.
