Welcome to Day 19 of 30 Minus 2 Days of Writing, the creative writing challenge that 4 out of 5 landscapers agree is the reason for crabgrass. Today’s prompt is Little Things, and it was Tami’s idea. Don’t forget to link up at the end of this post if you participated in today’s challenge before sneezing uncontrollably.
That Is The Question
“Mom, why do you love me?”
“You’re my son. I have to. It’s a law or something.”
“No. Seriously. Why do you love me?”
“Because you’re smart. And funny. You make me laugh. You’re a good person. You’re kind. You don’t get into trouble. You are respectful. Most of the time. You play with your brother even when I don’t ask you to. You don’t gripe when I ask you to empty the dishwasher. Most of the time. You like to help people, especially kids. You stand up for what’s right. You believe strongly that family is the most important thing. You don’t conform. Basically, I love you for all the big things and all the little things you do. I love the things that make you you.”
“Oh. That’s really nice.”
“Yup. So. Why do you love me?”
