Aaaaaahhhhhhh, Love.....................

Love Graphics

There are a lot of wonderful feelings we can & do experience as humans. Although some may be considered negative feelings, they are also wonderful because we have the ability to feel them, like fear or sadness, but also happiness, serenity, peace, comfort, joy, hope, so many to list, but love, oh, love. At times it can be undescribeable you feel it so strongly, it can work magic, it can make you silly, it can make you feel like you're not even yourself & today I was reminded on two different occasions how great an emotion love is & how thankful I am, as humans, that we can experience this thing called love.

I have a friend, a dear friend, who I e-mail almost on a daily basis. It's like a daily ritual, a habit, something that makes my day feel complete, to send off an e-mail full of thoughts or just everyday activities & to read great e-mails full of the same. And today, my friend shared this, "I love that man. Some of the things he says just make me laugh so hard. He knows exactly what to say to make me laugh. I just love it." I hope she doesn't get upset with me for sharing this with the world, but I figure since she's so in love, she won't mind sharing that fact with all of you, although I'm sharing it for her, hahaha. ANYWAY!

Then I clicked a link in a newsletter that led to another link that led to another, you know how it goes, but rarely does it lead to something I enjoy as much I did this one. A link about the World's Greatest Romantic led me to Princess Cruise Lines contest they recently had to find the World's Greatest Romantic & I took the time to view the winner's video & some of the finalists videos & in watching these couples, or at least one part of the couple, express their love & adoration for their companion; it just hit me how lucky we are to be human, to be able to search during our lives for people to love in so many different ways.

If you would like, here is the link to the videos from the top finalists. http://greatestromantic.princess.com/contest-vote.aspx?vid=2

And I wanted to give each of my blog readers a chance to share their love for someone special in their lives. Just a quip or two would be fine, just whatever hits you first. Mine..... "I love, loving that man of mine." I think it's a song, but it immediately bounced into my head when I thought about what fun it is to be in love with Mark. He too is a fantastic funny man & has made me giggle with glee & guffah until my sides hurt. It is an amazing feeling to love & laugh with someone so incredible.

I can't wait to read what you have to share!!

I don't mind at all that you shared with the world how much I love my hubby. Please just let me know before you share what I've said when I've been mad at him, haha.

Have you ever thought about how many different ways you love someone? I passionately love Ricky. But at times I see him with our children and it just touches my heart a different way. Or he can being playing golf and I'll love his dedication to a game he doesn't get to play as much of anymore. There are just so many things and ways I love him.

I agree with your friend Sybil. I love John at different times and in different ways. I still remember the terrible heartache I felt when we broke up for a SHORT time while we were dating. I am glad I never have to be seperated from him again. I feel lucky every day to be married to such a GOOD person. That is one thing I love most about him. He's just good. He inspires me to be better. I love him truly. He makes me happy everyday. We Belong together.

One of the many things I love about my husband is that he is always, always there for me and he always cares about my thoughts and feelings. He always has a way of making me feel better. I have often heard people say that they married their best friend and that is soooo true for me. Me and my husband were best friends for years before we got married, and I have always enjoyed that closeness that we share. I feel so blessed to have the opportunity and privledge to love such a good man!

There are a million ways to love a man! And a zillion reasons to love him.

Loving someone can make you feel as soft as melting butter, as tender as a baby's tear, yet anxious, thrilled frightened, angry, lonely, filled beyond the capacity to hold...

Loving Wayne is either like letting a fine chocolate melt in your mouth or like trying to chew on a jawbreaker. Easy, comforting,
delectable, soul satisfying...
OR difficult, requiring great patience, teetering on the brink of impossible, but... always sweet.
