There is so much to be said for affection and generosity. Just saying the words brings me close to what they mean. Affection is a gentle form of love. It's lightness is walking arm in arm down the street. It is a bouquet. A wink. It is easy and undemanding and always welcome.
Generosity arrives often unexpectedly. It takes us by surprise and and can produce tears or laughter and sometimes both. It can be invisible, mysterious, but we know it orginates with one of us somewhere who paused to think of you, or us, of them, of all. Nice little words to have around.
