In any relationship (real or not real), the small things can mean so much.
A handwritten note left in their purse, wallet, or book bag.
A prayer and active faith.
A good morning / night text.
A simple “hey” to show you’re thinking of them.
A listening ear, focused eyes, and mirroring body language (active listening, not “uh-huhs” “Mmm’s” or curt nods).
A “saw-this-and-thought-of-you” gift
A taking of their hand.
A cuddle session.
An inside joke between you guys.
A helping hand and a mind that doesn’t keep score.
A choice to do an activity the other person likes.
A decision to put your phone down or turn the TV off to hang out with them in a refreshing way.
An encouragement of growth (which may mean putting your foot down and not letting certain things slide anymore)
This list only brushes the surface.
