It is 3:30 a.m. I wasn't ready for sleep so I thought I would write for a while. The topic this morning? Love.
Where would we be without this wonderful feeling and emotion we call love? In my opinion, we would be living in an even darker world than we already do. We would be sad and down trodden all the time. We wouldn't like ourselves or anyone else for that matter because we wouldn't know how. If we didn't have love we would only know how to hate and be negative.
Since it is now November and we reflect on those things we are thankful for in life, I am very thankful for love. I am thankful to love and be loved in return no matter my faults or mistakes. Lord knows I have made many and can't take them back, but I am loved no less by those most important to me. What a Blessing! I often sit during the day and think about just how much I am loved by those closest to me and it always brings a smile to my face and warms my heart.
The love I have for my family and they have for me is unconditional. If they didn't love me I don't know where I would be. I love them so much. I text my Mom and tell her I love her everyday because I want her to know. I call my Granny everyday and even though we don't often say I love you, we know. We expect to talk everyday and if not one calls the other, that's love. Even though he isn't here on Earth... I still have an immense amount of love for my Papaw. He always made sure that I could get around in both houses he built for himself and Granny, and was ready to come back with "Hey Papaw!" right after one of us kids said it because he loved us. And he was always ready with a Hershey Kiss or Peppermint in hand. :) Coming together as one to help another through something is a true action of love and I've witnessed that so much in my family. They are just simply amazing!
The love I have for Michael is of course different.. but I truly believe with all my heart we were meant to be. I spent time tonight thinking about different things we have been through and special things he has done for me. Each time I do this, it makes me love him more than before. He means the world to me. I love that I can love him. I love that he can make me smile, and laugh just by being silly. I love him! :)
My heart is bursting at the seams with love to share with the world, is yours?
Be thankful to be loved, and remember.. Jesus loves YOU this I know..
P.S. Sorry if this makes no sense, it was late/early!
