The Meaning of True Love

Love is sharing and caring, 
Giving and forgiving.
Loving and being loved.
Walking hand in hand.
Talking heart to heart
Seeing through each other’s eyes.
Laughing together, 
Weeping together,
Praying together,
And always trusting
And believing.
And thanking God 
For each other…
For love that is shared 
is a beautiful thing…
It enriches the soul
and makes the heart sing!

February 6th- love

If you would be loved, love and be lovable.

Benjamin Franklin 

They say the if you want to be more lovable, you’ve to know how to love yourself. You have to care about yourself as well as others.  If we don’t feel lovable, how can we expect anyone else to love us?

We don’t have to be perfect to be lovable.  But we do have be good to ourselves.  If we don’t first take care of ourselves we cannot be good for others.  When we are good to ourselves it also helps others.  When we are at our best, healthy happy, and rested, we can do everything a bit better.  No one wants to be around a tired out, grumpy person.

We have to learn to be our own best friend, because sometimes we fall into the trap of being our own worst enemy. Almost anything comes full circle.  People who love themselves come across as very caring, generous and kind to others too.  We can be lovable, because we are caring and kind to others.

The most important thing in life is to learn how to give out love, and to let it come in.

Such a cute picture with your grandson and the big heart balloon! So true we can be our own worst enemies. Good advice for us to love ourselves if we want to be more lovable around others!

That Helen Steiner Rice really 'gets' it, doesn't/didn't she?
Ya, I wasted a lot of years putting myself last … probably believing I was being so noble. (LOL)
LOVE that pix of your little man with that balloon!

It has always been easier for me to love others and to give to others than it's been for me to feel lovable or to accept gifts from other people, but I'm working on it.
