One of my Christmas gifts for Dave was this pillow that I found here. We've had a very trying year with family. As sad as it makes us feel to not have support from those who should be there for us, it also brings us closer together. I don't think we came together out of coincidence. We are better, stronger, smarter united. It's as if what we find in each other is what we lacked from our youth.
I got him/us this pillow to remind us that we are not just products of the families we came from. One of our big goals is that our family, our girls, will be better in so many ways. We will do better for them and give them better opportunities and support. All this begins with crazy, amazing love at home. As this pillow states "Love is Spoken Here" in our home, no if, ands or buts. No matter how tired or angry we are we speak respectfully and lovingly to one another.
When objects of design bring us good memories or remind us of higher standards I think they're beyond beautiful.
