Thinking about all the things I touch my heart on this International Day of Love ...
I love... the man who has been the center of my life for 38 years
... the four wonderful people who I was blessed to give birth to
... the three little souls that came through them & the two more that are on the way
... the men that my girls have chosen
... my sister, my brothers in law, their children - how wonderful it is to have an extended family
... all the rest of my family - aunt, cousins - the whole kit 'n caboodle
... my wonderful awesome circle of friends
... my 'fingertip' friends - the world that I have come to know through the wonders of technology.
Besides all the people in my world - past, present and to come - these are but a few of the things that I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE, as they pop into my mind ...
a candlelight bath
a good book
making new friends
visiting old friends
holding a newborn babe
a meal someone else has made
listening to books
a clean house
hearing the voices of those I love
cuddling with my grandbabes
a smiling face
and on and on and on....
I hope that everyone is surrounded by things & people that light the candle of love in their hearts - today & always.
