how do you know that you are loved...

it is in the smallest of acts, the simplest of gestures, the slightest of glances, the shortest of sentences.
it is in a sigh, a look, a plea, a story.
it is in a tone, a wish, a promise.
it is first thing in the morning, after something really funny, right before something amazing, in the middle of something scary.
you must be quiet and you must watch. you must be brave and you must look closely. you must listen and you must notice.
it will overwhelm you. it will take your breath. it will melt your heart.
you must be gentle, you must be kind, you must be forgiving.
because now you know
you are so loved.
