I Love You

As you go through your day:

1. Try to remember that you don't know what is going on in someone's life. They may not bump into you because they don't care but because they are distracted by a problem they are trying to work out.

2. A smile can change the outcome of a day. If you've ever felt unloved, it's nice to be acknowledged, even if it's by a total stranger.

3. Children come here as pure, untarnished angels. They are not to be abused, belittled, or ignored. Watch them light up when their parents look at them with love instead of disapproval. That's the face of God.

4. Bad moods are sometimes contagious. If you're having a hard day, that's ok, but don't deliberately infect the rest of us. We need to be there for you if you fall.

5. Are you present? For yourself first and others later? How can you give love if you don't know what it is? Can you make time for others if you never have any? How do you spread joy if you never feel it?

This post is dedicated to my sister, friend, loving mother and wife, Linda, and to her dedicated partner, husband, and best friend Morten. May they always feel supported and loved by their family, friends, and God. This energy will carry us through this life and onto the next. With this connection, we will never be separated, no matter the plane.

Pass on this message of love. It is the most important thing you can accomplish in this life.

For every reader that stops by: All is well. You are forever loved.

You are just so special. Thanks for that! I needed it today, in the midst of my writing storm. But, I'm smiling, not frowning. That's the only contagion i want to infect others with.

CF Winn said...

Thank you Nonnie! I think your bubbly personality and generosity is spreading...thank you for that! Sending you hugs for when you take a few writing breaks.

Thank you for this. We all need to be reminded once in a while.

As a survivor of #3, I can say that it is not just parents that light up a child's face (sometimes, they are the monster), but anyone who can guide them through the fog. Angels come in many forms.

Good point Wee Tales. Thank you for reading and offering that perspective, :)

What a great way to start the day! So good in fact, that I've done so three days in a row. May keep going until I get it all right! It's always such a boost when I hear you spreading the love! And really, you last line says it all. I think that may be a line from a book I've read a few times!

CF Winn said...

You are very observant and extremely loved Mary Margaret! <3

Thanks Awkward! It was written from the heart for a very special person and truth is always lovely!

That is beautiful. Perfect steps to start the day with and brighten a life, including your own.

CF Winn said...

I believe that you are right as usual Elise! I hope that whoever reads this can take away that feeling. Thank you for reading!
