Importance, pt. 2

Nothing like waking up at 3:00 in the morning & writing in your head, dozing off & then waking up again only to pick back up where you left off.

Another item to add to the list of important things to me in relationships.

Gestures - Wildflowers picked & given with a smile, coffee & muffin delivery before work, a note tucked in a coat pocket, a mix tape/cd (remember those?!) with songs that remind them of you/your relationship.  Little things that let you know you're thought about, that you're special, wanted, needed, desired.  A lingering kiss when saying good bye that says you don't really want to go.  Being grabbed & kissed with an urgency that leaves you breathless.  Cooking a special meal, brushing the hair out of your face, making the perfect cup of coffee - just like they like it.  I had a woman at work tell me that her husband brings her cappuccino in bed every morning, for the past 10 years or so.  She doesn't even know how to use the cappuccino maker.  Catching your someone with "THAT look", catching them looking at you - just watching you with a smile on their face.  There are grand gestures & there are the little everyday things that make the sunshine in your day even through the darkest, rainiest of days.

There are so many things that make up a good relationship, romantic & otherwise.  Love, respect, trust, & faithfulness just to name a few.  Ultimately every relationship is unique - it's own entity.  For a relationship to work the people involved need to come together & decide what works for them & what doesn't.
