Love is..

Hello February….
You are the month for Love.   Love Love Love
Welcome to my love life
Where you will find love

Love is holding hands no matter how old you are

Love is cream cheese and homemade jam on a toasted bagel

Love is having paints in many colors for smearing on the canvas of my life

Love is breakfast in bed with a rose on the tray

Love is cool breezes in summer that push the heat away for a few seconds

Love is my family near and far, just as they are

Love is my family of friends all around from everywhere

Love is a crayon drawing on lined paper posted on the frig

Love is bright and shiny stars that are the doorknobs to heaven

Love is sending a card by the mailman so they can hold it in their hands

Love is sweet candy nothings whispered in your ear

Love is red, pink, and white m&m’s with peanuts shared with him

Love is sharing an ice cream float with two spoons

Love is tiny finger prints on the bathroom mirror

Love is strawberries and chocolate……together

Love is the gift of a child and being called mama

Love is a song sang by someone special just to you

Love is that little note left for you to find, the one that makes you smile

Love is two hearts that pitter patter as one

Love is being honest no matter how bad it hurts

Love is that smile that leaves you feeling warm and giddy

Love is life, life is love…a love that tugs at our heart strings and makes our heart swoon with pleasure. You cannot have love and be alone …love is meant to be shared and given away…
sowed like seeds…whirled in the wind.

February is...

Today and everyday I tell someone that I love them.
Yesterday I mailed some love.
Tomorrow I will love some more and make someone else feel loved.

I will smile at strangers, I will offer to help some elderly person and see the joy in their eyes. I will hold someone’s hand when they are hurting. I will listen with my heart and love with my eyes through a smile...Want some love?  Share some love!

Jesus is Love
~Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.
~Jesus in John 15:13

The best thing about me is you!

My word for 2010-Experience
I’ve experienced love.
Oh yeah...Go here and see Amelia for a LOVELY give-away!!

Cora~ first let me say how lovely you are to come visit me and leaving such sweet words. It truly means a lot. Lately it seems when it rains it pours. I appreciated this post....It is the little gestures in life that can bring an abundance of joy. Which I'm truly grateful for.

I had a good chuckle when I saw those pet sitting photos. I would have cuddled those bundles of fur till they pulled out their Pepe Le Pew faces.

Sweet wishes,

Hi Cora

This reminded me of those naked kids and the "love is" things from the 70's/80's. Do you remember them?
