the love letter

Life can be so harsh with all its societal, mental, emotional, social, familial and person demands. It can be overwhelming and exhausting. Yet, those very things can bring such joy when seen through a positive perspective. My amazing mentor and friend, C, sent me this idea as a way to lift not only my spirit, but all those who read and may choose to participate - I'm calling it "The Love Letter" - It's everything I love about life.

**************************************************


I love sharp cheeses. I love the feeling of a warm blanket on a winter's night. I love the sight of my puppy's tail wagging. I love the feel of my husband's face close to mine. I love movies that make me cry. I love summer. I love a glass of wine on my back porch after a long day. I love perspectives that are different from mine. I love hot baths. I love the feel of Autumn air. I love connecting deeply with friends. I love when life's lessons finally make sense. I love music that moves me to write. I love ice cream. I love watching our horses play in the field. I love that photography stops time. I love the wisdom of my father. I love friends who aren't afraid to speak truth to you. I love rain storms. I love vanilla pudding. I love my memories of staying at my grandma's house. I love that my grandfather found love again. I love that I see life through pictures. I love that my heritage is multifaceted. I love spending Sunday mornings watching movies in bed with my husband. I love getting lost in a magazine. I love that I'm passionate. I how time is inferior when I'm shopping. I love when the weather begs to be enjoyed. I love the sound rushing water. I love that my story isn't a fairytale. I love being home on a rainy day. I love phone calls from good friends. I love road trips while listening to books on CD. I love soy latte's from Starbucks. I love the sound of children laughing. I love diversity of opinions. I love random phone calls from my husband just to say 'hi'. I love spending the whole day in my pajamas. I love funny people. I love other people's stories. I love thinking about the future. I love feeling empowered. I love blogging. I love knowing people I've never met. I love writing stories in my mind even when I'm on the toilet. I love singing in the shower. I love looking at old pictures. I love the innocence of babies.  I love the beach. I love riding my bike. I love working in the yard with my husband. I love my dad. I love having purpose. I love Pennsylvania. I love discovering North Carolina. I love living in a small town. I love girls night out.  I love love.

Wow this is so me! Almost everything in this would make it on a list of things I love. Especially "I love love." I have always said this, multiple times and it is the essence of everything I LOVE! :)
