The Love in my Life


Since tomorrow is a special day to remember the love in our lives, I would like to share the love in my own life.

I have come to understand, that it makes no difference whether you’re single, married, or in a relationship with someone.

There is a Love that is always present.

I’ve been single for most of my life. And I can honestly say that being single, has never made me feel less wanted, less cared for, or less loved.

Love comes to me in many forms.

Family.

Friendships.

Nature.

And also, through my own personal spiritual connection.

I have always felt held, supported, and guided through my life.

I have always felt wealthy in the way of love.

And I use to wonder to myself, “Why do I feel so loved? Because I honestly don’t feel as though I give as much love, as I receive.”

And then one day I realized something…

Love is not something that is mine to give.

Because love is not something that comes from me.

Love is something that is delivered through me.

Love is constant.

It is giving and receiving simultaneously.

And it was during the darkest times in my life; when I felt scared, lost, confused, and thought I was alone, that I was reminded about the love in my life.

And it came to me in a whisper...

I am always here.

Therefore, feel that you are always loved.






Happy Valentines Day everyone!

  5. OH I took that pink heart and saved it right away!! Thank YOU. Very pretty. Not fattening like chocolate. ;)

    Ron, this post was absolutely terrific. And sooooo true for many of us. While I am in a very loving long term relationship and we are each others Valentine it's still wonderful to have the love of friends, family, neighbors, and others too who you feel that connection.

    I recently got an email from a girlfriend who said something about her not having a Valentine. I had invited her to join us if we go out this weekend for dinner and she only wanted to go if our son was going as well, so she would feel like the 3rd wheel. But that's sooooo not how we feel about our friendships. Ron was actually thinking... OOH YEAH, I get to be at dinner with TWO women!!! hehe I think it's just the media, the ads, the stores, etc. that hype the day up to some almost ridiculous level. Loving and being loved is something we can all do/be each and every day.

    I'm happy for all the love in my life.

    Happy to have warm and loving places to visit when the world is harsh. Here is one of those places. Thanks friend!

    Have a nice weekend. :)

  7. Helloooooo Crystal Chick!

    BRAVA!!

    I would like to DITTO your comment and tack it onto this post!!!!

    You shared all the thoughts and feelings I felt when writing this post and summed it up in one sentence...

    Loving and being loved is something we can all do/be each and every day.

    My sentiments exactly!

    And you're also right-on about the media, ads, and commercial hype! I'm in retail, so I see that everyday...during EVERY holiday. Yet, it always gives me a clearer perspective on what these holidays should really mean.

    Thank you for sharing your comment today, M!

    And thank YOU for adding your warmth and love to this blog.

    It's always so enjoyed and appreciated!

    So glad you took the heart!

    you are always loved!

    HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!!

  19. Oh... I got all choked up inside and some tears ran down my cheeks.... Soooo true, what you said!! I loved it!! I always tell people that Valentine's Day isn't just for lovers -- but for friends, family, etc... Those we love... and we can all spread the love with a smile, a kind word, or by just being there for someone...
    Happy Valentine's to you- dear and cherished friend.
    Thanks so much for the heart!! Love, Leesa

    HAPPY VALENTINES DAY!!!!!!

    Woo! Woo! Woo!

    It's funny, because when I decided to write about love for this post, I kept struggling with how to say what it was that I was feeling. I literally struggled with this for two days before I posted it.

    And then on the night that I wrote this, I got so damn frustrated...I thought, "Shit...write something else Ron, and just forget about this post."

    And just before I totally gave up, "something" made me close my eyes, and place my hands over my heart...

    ...and VIOLA!

    LOVE spoke!

    Thanks for stopping by today, Leesa!

    Hope you're having a FABULOUS day filled with tons of LOVE and cupcakes!!

    tee, hee!

    You are cherised too, my friend!

    Thank you for being here!

    Hug attack !
    Love is an energy, and I think that you have undertood that since a long time.
    It's in you, and those around you.
    I'm of those who think that one does not find love. You create it,share it,and such.

    Share in the Love, Ronnie.
    Have a great Valentine's day & weekend too !
