Little things…

It’s amazing how little things in my day to day life remind me of you, of us. Although there are many moments that make me think of you so many times a day, the one that made me miss you all the more today was that instant when I realized you were not nearby to share ice cream with me.

While I was at the store this evening, I saw that ice cream that comes in mini packs that we used to share from time to time. So, without second thoughts, I bought myself one of those. I came home, and promptly sat down to enjoy my ice cream time. And, just like that, thoughts of you, of us enjoying the ice cream together flashed before my eyes.

Thoughts of how we always dig into the cup one after the other taking turns alternatively; of how I always end up grabbing a little more with every spoon and you a little less, so I can have my fair share plus more; of how, regardless of whose turn it really is, you always let me have the last spoon – although not having you around to share an ice cream means I get to savor it all, I miss that joy of looking forward to that last spoon. Simple pleasures.

Remember how the last time you were here I couldn’t wait any longer and ended up eating all the ice cream myself while you were busy doing something else? Remember how you came back to an empty cup and asked me what happened to your share? Remember how I told you that there was another carton in the freezer and that you were more than welcome to have it? And remember how you said you didn’t care for the ice cream but all you wanted was the chance to share it with me? My heart melted.

These seemingly little things that you do – and there are many more, but I’ll save those for some other day – translate to best of love to me.

And like that, many other things / places remind me of you, of us, of the times we’ve spent together.  They bring about a warm feeling in me; they make me smile and leave me content. All I need to do when I yearn for that loving hug from you is close my eyes and let the memories do their magic.

There are a million memories now and I can’t wait to add millions more with time.

    7 mentions of Ice-cream in this post. If Ice cream did not exist what would you do ? 😛

    what? why would you say such a thing or have such a bad thought. not ok, matt, not ok. i can’t even imagine a world without ice cream
