Something Sweet

This is for the girls. So that they know what daddy's like and why mommy loves him so. 
I'm not into PDA, and do not idolize the other half. SF, on the other hand, is not the one to profess a lot -- in words or otherwise. 
I love yous are no longer commonly uttered when there's hardly time to even talk.
Last week, however, something was said.
We'd just returned from a trip to Penang. The first in almost 2 1/2 years. The last time we were there, Karen wasn't even conceived yet.
Back home, sitting in the bedroom, I asked if Penang was greatly missed. 
Definitely, for the food, SF said.
Apart from the food, did he really miss Penang, I probed.
A moment in his thoughts, and this came out: I don't miss Penang because you're here with me.
That was the best thing he's ever said to me. Ever. It beats all the I love yous, I'd say.
Too sweet. Simply profound.
