What’s love got to do with it

February 2nd - love is everything

The things we love tell us what we are.

Thomas Aquinas

We all have things that fill our hearts and define our world. The things I love include reading a good book, creating a meal for my family, getting my hands dirty by gardening.  They are little things but they have an impact on my energy, self image and ability to cope.  

I love God, my family and my friends, they are the three things most important to me.  I believe when we focus on the important things,  life is more fulfilling. 

With so many things to love, I never have a boring day.  I’m happy doing what I love.  I hope it does define who I am.  I love being a mom, a grand’ma’, a sister, a friend, a lover of the sun, and laugh often. I am devoted to God who is love and I hope in some small way to be able to reflect that.

We are what we what we love.  We are the things the people, the ideas we spend our days with.  They center us, they drive us, they define us to our very core.  Without them, we are empty.

That is so true, Ma, that there are so many things to love that we should not have a boring day. I know sometimes working it can be boring, but even then I should love that I have a job :)

Enjoy your day!

As I read this the song from the 50's hit my head: "Love is a Many Splendored Thing". Yes, love makes the weak strong. Love sets my insides to sorta tingling even at 80. The love of life is real, I feel sorry for someone who does not love life....
So we send some love your way from Florida,
Sherry & jack
