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!!
