Linking up with the wonderful Maegen over at My Life Set to Words for the Sunday Creative. This week's word-affection.
I jotted the word "affection" down on a slip of paper last Sunday as a reminder to myself for the Sunday Creative. Each day I've glanced at the word hoping for inspiration and well....it hasn't really come along. I suppose there was affection that came through the chocolate I ate on Valentine's day and there was definitely affection in the sweet Facebook post I received from my best friend on my wall on Valentine's morning, but that's sort of where I've come to a screaching hault on affection.
The most affection I feel is for my dear pets...my constant companions. Trite-perhaps, but genuine. When I hear the word affection, they are what I think of. They too have affection for one another, but they are not at all demonstrative about it-I see it in subtle passing and interaction but there are no snuggly, curled up together, Kodak moments-at least not that I ever witness.
Today I remembered a rare photograph I have of the two of them in the same frame taken just a couple weeks back. Not the best photo ever, but it certainly says affection and it includes my two sweeties. I love the gentleness of the moment and the show of trust.
So...I guess I call that affection and leave it at that.
