What Is Love?

"Love is a gift we hold on to dearly with open arms. If we look up we will see that it is all around us waiting to be embraced." ~Mama Hen
Love comes in many ways, shapes and forms. It is all around us and we must be open to allowing it to enter our lives and hearts. Along my journey here on Earth I have known my share of heartbreaks and have loved and lost friendships I thought would always be there. However, these experiences have allowed me to cherish the love that has entered my heart and has stayed and flourished. Because true unconditional love is rather rare it makes finding it so much more special and when it continues to grow and strengthen we can only feel better for it. It allows us to move forward in life knowing that no matter what, someone out there really cares and will be there to help pick up the pieces when we no longer have the strength to do so ourselves. Little Chick is pure LOVE. She is filled with it and pours it out with such innocence, compassion and empathy. I think we all can learn from the love children so sweetly give to others.
Happy Smile Sunday!

  8. Relationships that stand the test of time and change are special. True love is hard to find, but yet, as mothers we are given this special gift of unconditional love on a platter. thanks for the reminder.
