Laundry is love.
Cooking is love.
Vacuuming is love.
It is love in honor of service if you do it for another’s time and energy or to improve a person’s life, even incrementally.
It’s as important as telling someone, “I love you,” or obligatorily remembering your anniversary. Words are easy. The grind is hard.
Take out the trash. Pick up the mess without commentary.
The bureaucracy of life fills our lives with stupid diversions.
Anything you do to reduce the to-do lists of someone you love is an act of love.
“Jesus es verbo, no sustantivo,” Ricardo Arjona sang to us. Even if you don’t speak Spanish, you’ll recognize that love is indeed a verb – and not just a noun.
