Why I Love You

...........and you know who you are. Each one of you.
I love you because you are you. I think every person comes into our lives for a reason. I know there is some saying about that. I should look it up but I don't feel like it. I know the long and short of it is that each person that enters your life serves some sort of purpose. Whether it be for a short time for a lesson you need to learn or forever because they are supposed to be there. Man I should look that up. The thing is, my personal relationships, my family, my friends mean everything to me. I feel that even in bad times I am so lucky to have you. You. To have a shoulder, to have your hand. To make me a hummus wrap when that is what I need. I would do it for you too, just so you know. To jump on that train. A hug. To call at just the right time. You are Super, you are. The craziness of how people you are close to seem to know when you need them astounds me. A chance run in with an old friend, a phone call from someone you don't expect, an e mail. The unconditional love that surrounds me literally takes me to my knees and gives me back the breath that I feel I am losing. If you are reading this, chances are, I'm talking to you. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you. And you, you the most.

Okay, I did look it up: and this is my favorite part,


Lifetime relationships teach you lifetime lessons; those things you must build upon in order to have a solid emotional foundation. Your job is to accept the lesson, love the person or people (any way); and put what you have learned to use in all other relationships and areas of your life. It is said that love is blind but friendship is clairvoyant. Of all the words of tongue or pen, the saddest are these... it might have been.

Thank you for being a part of my life.

Driving the kids to school. Flipping stations on the radio: negative political ads, depressing economic news, war, etc. Then we find the only song on the radio: "I'll be there for you" (from Friends) by the Rembrants. Coincidence? I don't think so.....

My favorite quote "Those you matter don't mind...those who mind don't matter" That's what friends are for!
Love ya!

OK, I was gonna say, "Can I get that on a fuzzy kitty cat plate with a glass of simple syrup?" But now all I've got is...Love you. You're beautiful, inside and out and you make a lot of people very happy - even when they're not very happy!

Christy said...

That's beautiful and you are very blessed! But it doesn't surprise me that you have such amazing people in your life because YOU are amazing. I know I don't know you outside of this blog, but I can tell how kind you are and how much you care about the people in your life.

Your openness is beautiful--you bring a lot of Light to this Internet world! :)
