I’m back. I know. Unacceptable. Honestly.  And I have to admit there have been several times over the last month and a half that I have thought about blogging but of course I come up with a million reasons not to…..too tired, too many other things to do, too much work, and every other excuse out there.  Tonight after reading through several of my favorite blogs I was inspired to get back at it.  Tonight I focus on Love.

For only being a four letter word, I find it to be one of the most powerful yet sometimes difficult to fully express.  Love can have so many different meanings and expressions.  Love is shared by families, friends, communities and complete strangers are often times brought together by it.  In my reflections of Love in my own life, I think about the deep Love I have for my family.  My mom and dad, my sisters, my niece and nephew, my mother and father in-law, my grandma, my aunts, uncles, cousins. Love.  My husband.  The Love I have for him seriously deepens everyday. He is my rock and provides me with strength and courage and helps me to be a better wife and mother. Love. My job.  I feel so fortunate to say that I Love my job.  It fulfills me. Love. My friends. I cherish those who I have known for years who have been there with me through life’s journey. I have been so blessed over the last year to meet some wonderful women of which I can say have become pretty awesome friends and supporters.  I feel it to be rare in life when you find those “forever” friends and I’m so blessed that I have several. Love.  My children. Wow I ‘m not sure I ever really knew Love until these two.  I’m pretty sure the definition of Love is being a parent…right?!  My two kiddos teach me so many things each and everyday and they too give me strength, and sometimes test it, and make me want to be a better mother to them.  My biggest wish in life is that my babies grow up knowing how much they mean to me and how much I Love them. Love.
