Today is sweetest day. I am such a romantic at heart. But I got to thinking about who all I love, and the truth of the matter, i have so many to love...my dear dad who went to Heaven many years ago, my loving and dear mother who always stood behind me even during the roughest of times. and my children, each so very special and worth all the love one can have... and then the newest love of my life, my dear sweet perfect grandson... of course there are grand parents, aunts, uncles and my dear brother, along with nieces galore...but in all this love i have for everyone...i am leaving out one person... and this is a love letter to them... the daily dare in my teams today is to write a love letter to yourself... a hard one, for me at least... because until recently, i didn't really know if i loved myself... now, it's time to rekindle that love...for me.
Dear JoDee, we have had a lifetime together, we have seen our ups and our downs. I've let you down so many times over these past years, but you are still there. I have given my love to so many others, yet i have failed at loving you most of all. I had to remember that with each new love, that the heart grows bigger to share more love...and that the i can't forget about my first love...you. These last few months, i've come to realize that i can i love you, but thus far, have not really shown it. I've gone back to eating unhealthy, not being as active as i should and plain not showing my love for you. That is going to change, because at the end of the day, when all is said and done, when my eyes close for the night, it's you that has been right there...showing all that love for everyone else but yourself. I do love you, you are a very special person! You have a beautiful smile and oh those eyes that tells a life time of stories... and look at the way you love to attend to others... through work and your church. You have raised 3 wonderful children and look at the perfect little man who is your grandson...he looks at you with all the love a baby can muster..he already knows how special you are. So now it's time for you not only to know you love you, but to show it. That means we are going to have to work some things out... i mean, i know you like that fast food, but because i love you, we are going to have to work out a way to make healthy food fast again...we did it before, and we can do it again... and you know, i would really love to take some walks with you...or ride a bike...how about some dancing even. and you know, we might have turn off the tv now and then so we can have this loving time together...we can still have and show all this love to everyone else, but now and then we are going to have to sacrifice that tv time to be able to make it work... but i love you and you are worth it, so i am willing to do that for the best possible life i can have with you.
My new love song to you is I Cross My Heart by George Straight. Here is a video for you to watch and listen to. www.youtube.com/watch?v=3aqZV463Yis
