Love Month: Day 1
It’s a month to express your love to others! So, who’s up for another month of posting every day? Me! Me! Me!
For the next 29 days (it’s a Leap Year!), I will be telling you how I am expressing my love for others, things I am loving, and ways I have felt loved during the month. Want to play? Sure you do!
One way I’ve shown love today is just by listening to one of my co-workers as she talked about a past trip to Europe. The conversation was probably accidental as she stopped by my desk to drop off something. I’m not even sure how it began, but we talked for about 15 minutes over her trip. She was telling me how blessed she was to be able to visit Europe once. It was so nice to hear her reminisce over such a fond memory—and it was exciting to me to hear what all she saw in England, Scotland, and France. Maybe one day, I’ll be able to experience first hand the opportunity she was talking about. It really started my day off well, but better than that, you could tell how happy it made her just to talk about it and have someone listen. Melted my heart!
Today, I have felt loved for many reasons. First, it’s my birthday! I’m officially 32! I woke up to my handsome husband holding Kohen (who still isn’t feeling well) wishing me a Happy Birthday. He had slept with Kohen on the couch. I can’t tell you how important he makes me feel, and how he always puts family first. I feel so loved by him every single second of my life. I also had more than 30+ F@cebook messages and text messages wishing me a “Happy Birthday!” At each one, I smiled and felt so blessed to have so many friends and family who took time out to wish me well. Thank you Friends and Family! What a wonderful way to start out Love Month.
Something I am loving is my new bracelet for the Believing God study. (You can win one by entering here before Saturday!) I am also really, really loving the Edwards Key Lime Pie one of my co-workers brought today! It is one of my most favorite desserts!
How have you felt loved? How have you shared love? What are you loving?
I began blogging several years ago in search of new friends who, like me, were having a difficult time getting pregnant. Five years, 2 miscarriages, 4 failed IUI's, and a doctor who told us "It will never happen" later, we are the proud parents of Kade and Kohen. They are each an example of God's absolute perfection. We thank God where medical intervention stops, Divine intervention begins.
