For those we love

o.k.…. I don’t know who keeps track of my blog… I know that it says that I’ve had 35 visitors, but I also know that if someone stops in one time then that counts as a visitor… so I really have no idea… but if you do I have a challenge for you…. Today you should do something nice for no reason for someone you care about… if you have kids ask them what they want to do… or surprise them with hot chocolate and talk, if its your husband/wife maybe you could just write them a letter telling them that you do love them and are thankful that they are there for you to spend time with… maybe its your waitress and you want to leave her a tip more than usual… or take a friend out to lunch, or call your Mom, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, Aunt, Uncle, Son, Daughter, Close friend… just to let them know that you wanted to remind them someone does care about them… these are just ideas, you get the gist of it…. The bible says “Therefore all things whatsoever ye would that men should do to you, do ye even so to them: for this is the law and the prophets. “ (Mathew 7:12) but remember it’s a nice gesture for no reason, you might not get a response from them… but remember you are doing it because you love them, not because you want something in return… find joy in the fact that you know that they know you care. And trust me, even if they don’t act like it, you will be making their day a little brighter.

So here is what I’m going to do in front of the whole world! (definately out of my comfort zone)

This is to my wife…. I love you with all my heart, And despite how I know you feel at times I would not change the person that you are. No I don’t feel that your perfect, but I do think you are right for me. Your “quirkiness” is part of your charm for me, when I point it out it isn’t because I want you to change it it’s because I think it’s cute. So I guess what I’m saying is if I could rewind to that day that I met you at Stephanie’s door, I wouldn’t even think about refusing to open it… you are one of the best things in my life. Even if I do a lousy job of showing it!!!! Again I love you more than you will ever know.
