my mom says she's not a hugger. but when i put my arms around her on a gloomy day or after bad news she's the last to let go.
my dad says he doesn't want gifts on his birthday, but i see the way his face light up when i get him a card with a nice message and a box full of chocolate anyway. he's just a kid inside, still. it makes him giddy.
my brother never says i love you. but when i tell him "i just need to finish the dishes before i vacuum!" he wordlessly goes to vacuum the entire house before i can, and if he sees me struggle with a wrapper or a jar or a bottle he mutters 'c'mere' and opens it for me without even sparing me a glance.
the thing is, people love you quietly, and you love them quietly, and the air is buzzing with tiny but grand gestures & once you look for them, you find them everywhere. i think that's really beautiful.
