31 Days Series – Love notes for life
Joy in the little things.
Fleeting moments, filed away for another day.
A tender touch, an inquisitive gaze.
And the spectacular show of growing things.
When was the last time you walked in the sunshine and felt — down deep in your bones — the warmth, the strength, the pure perfection of the moment? When was the last time you marveled at a butterfly or turned to gaze at an airplane overhead? Have you stopped to watch grazing cattle or horses snorting in tall grass? Did you smile when a kitty-cat stretched? Did you hear the insects serenading one another? Did you recognize the kindness in a stranger’s smile? Did you look your children in the eye and really see their hearts? Did you accept the gift of acceptance from your spouse, best friend or parent? Did you see and feel the magnificence of heaven shining down in a sunset? When was the last time you surveyed the wonder around you and realized …
THIS IS LOVE.
To do my best to really see.
To be worthy … of the smiles and trust and love I’m given.
To notice … the tiny, tender and amazing moments that speak the language of love from above.
To open my eyes wider … search harder for the little things.
To marvel at everyday miracles and seasonal splendor.
I’m searching for love in the commonplace.
I’m making a commitment to pay attention for the next 31 days, and I’m participating in The Nester’s 31 days series. Please join me here every day in October, as I endeavor to find what’s free and plentiful to all of us if only we’d stop and accept the gifts. I’m lookin’ for love. I’m writing it down and capturing it, memory-keeping. I’m ready to rejoice in the bounty to come.
Please join me as I post daily love notes throughout October. And I want to know you’re along for the journey. Please leave a comment on Farmgirl Follies facebook page, telling me one thing that caused you to feel loved today!
And see what The Nester and other bloggers are writing about for 31 days!
