I have a confession to make. I am currently in a strong love affair with watching people who dare to "Love out loud". I am deeply and devotedly saturated in my love-fest. And I do not have any plans to leave this affair - ever.
Yesterday, I spotted an adoring post on Facebook, where a mother bragged about her daughter's new book release. She told the word that she had actually "read the book 4 times already!" (I secretly burst with a clap out loud!) What a supportive gift of pride in her daughter, said boldly and out loud! It was all I could do to not run over to her house and hug her. And then, the daughter replied,
"Ooh-Mom, that is great! You have absolutely made my day...again!! You are my rock and my greatest blessing in life. I love you so."
I got all misty. yep. These people were exploding with good, honest, kindness toward each other in a way that says "LOVE" in the deepest way. A mother was proud of her daughters accomplishments and shared it with the world. The daughter responded with equally proud and loving words. That's beautiful. Truly. Beautiful. (toss me a tissue...thanks)
Today, I saw a friend brag about his 26 years of marriage to the girl of his dreams...he said, "..26 yrs and still deeply in love". Hold me back! no. way. I had to make a comment.
"...and still deeply in love."...oh those are the best best best words to use! I adore when people love OUT LOUD! And I am so happy for you! Congratulations on 26 blessed years together! May God give you 40 more!!
