True Love A Wilcox Definition

Letting your baby pick all the strawberries out of your special K cereal every morning!

Helping your daughter get through piano practice everyday without an emotional breakdown.

Letting your kids help you cook in the kitchen.

Getting up early every morning to get the kids ready for school and make them a yummy lunch.

Working long hard hours.

Letting your younger siblings play even though you know they are going to mess up what ever you are playing with.

Leaving little notes at the gravesite of our recently deceased hamster.

Occasionaly watching a chick flick or two.

Warming up the other side of the bed.

Reading to your little sister.

Flowers and love notes.

Brownies in the mail.

Staying put in Washington.

Letting your little sister tag along with your friends.

Letting your kids play with playdough, space mud and all the other meesy things they have their hearts set on.

Sending your husband to California every three weeks.

And many, many other things...
