Today I'm linking up to Lisa-Jo aka the gypsy mama, who chooses a topic every Friday and writes for five minutes.
Only five minutes
Ready. Set. Go......
Man. This topic had my head spinning. What to say? What to not say? So....forget the thought process, and just say what pops in my head!
I feel the most loved when..... out of the blue, my daughter who does not live at home any more, will send me a text message saying "miss you" or "love you". It is a feeling of being needed and loved like nothing can compare to. I am so thankful to be important enough, or loved enough for her to let me know she loves me. My son has his own way of letting me know how much he cares. He is the one who seems to always know when to call and just say "what's up". He makes my heart smile by just being himself. He has a heart of gold. And he loves with his whole heart. No mistaken the love from him.
I feel the most loved when.....the man I married almost 25 years ago does small things that are so random and out of the blue, but knowing he thought of me while doing it. The most recent prime example would be on a normal run to our local dump, to take off brush and trash he came home with a box of treasures. Homar Laughlin dishes someone had discarded. Knowing my love for all antique dishes, he felt sure I'd be thrilled with this box. He really surprised me, because he always comments on my habit of collecting dishes and how many I actually have. But when he walked in the house, smiling that knowing smile, that he had a real prize to present to me, was a moment I won't soon forget. For me, I feel the most loved in the simplest of things from the one who knows me best.
I feel the most loved when.....my three precious pups greet me at the door, begging for me to pick them up. They patiently wait with tails wagging, happy and thrilled to see me. There is no comparison as to have one of them lay their head on my shoulder and give a little sigh of contentment. Talk about feeling loved beyond measure. No matter my mood, no matter how I feel, no matter that I am not always at my best, my 3 dogs do not care, the love me no matter what is not right in my world. It is a good feeling.
My family....my pets.....they make my world a sunny place. It is good to feel loved on any measure.
