Lots to Love
By Bernadette A. Moyer
There is so much to love! But you would never know it by turning on the news or checking out the various websites. How and why is that even possible? To hate when love is so much healthier and easier on us?
There is so much to love here, and in every way and on every single day. We should be throwing love around rather than criticism and hatred. How we respond when we don’t get our way or when things go against how we believe they should is an opportunity for grace and love.
I find pleasure in the little things! I turn off the television and turn off the news and internet and make food, I listen to music I watch love stories. I like cleaning and running errands. I like getting things done and enjoy that simple feeling of accomplishment. I love lots of things! I love going to the gym and enjoying the dry sauna.
Going to drop off the dry-cleaning I stop and get a good cup of coffee and turn up the tunes. On the way to Goodwill to drop off some gently used clothing and household items, I open the sunroof and let the cool fresh air in even when the temperature is at freezing. The sun hits my face and it makes me feel happy to be alive.
I think about what is left of winter and what spring might bring. Thinking about what flowers I will plant and what improvements are coming up makes me happy. The thought about upcoming travels reinforces how much there is to love.
What do you love? Make more of it! Do more with it!
On my day off I am thinking about the projects that are ahead and the ones that truly make me happy. What might I do to keep that accomplished feeling alive and spread more grace and love?
My house is clean, the laundry is washed and folded, I just pulled a meatloaf out of the oven and a fire is burning and warming our home. My dog sits at my feet and all I can think is, there is lots and lots to love here…
Love is everywhere around you, and so is hatred, choose happy, choose joy and choose love … there is lots and lots to love … seek and you shall find!
