Thankful Thoughts: Love

Thankful ThoughtsThankful thoughts about Love? In honor of Valentine’s Day, I wanted to pause and be thankful for LOVE.

I’m not talking about the mushy tingly stuff, although that’s nice too.

I’m talking about the long-enduring deep kind of love.

The kind of love that drives 20 miles to deliver me chicken soup and ginger ale when I’m hit with a stomach bug (thanks mom).

The kind of love that leaves the last M&M in the package and brings it to me all warm and sticky (thanks GoGo).

The kind of love that brings me a handful of flowers picked from the backyard to make me smile when I’m feeling down (thanks Watty).

The kind of love that covers my face for me during the scary parts of movies and never ever laughs at me for it (thanks Hubby).

I feel so loved.

And I’m so thankful for it.

Love is patient, love is kind, it is not envious. Love does not brag, it is not puffed up.  It is not rude, it is not self-serving, it is not easily angered or resentful.  It is not glad about injustice, but rejoices in the truth.  It bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. (1 Corinthians 13: 4-6 NET)

I am so blessed to have people in my life who love me, even when I’m being unlovable.

And I’m so blessed to have people in my live whom I love deeply.

I love to love.

You know that stretchy feeling you get when you have to dig deep and do something you really don’t want to do.  But you do it anyway because you love the person and you know it’s important to them.  (like when you choose to go to a car show with your husband instead of staying home and getting a pedicure.)  

I love that feeling.

Not always at that exact moment.  At the time I’m probably pouting about that pedicure I wanted.

It’s the same as that stretching out before you workout (and after too) thing.  The whole time I’m stretching I’m impatient with the process.  I’m eager to get on to the main workout and start actually burning fat (or to the shower or whatever).  But after, I’m always glad I stretched out.  After I stretch I just feel better.

That stretchy feeling from going to the car show is the same thing to me.  After I stretch I just feel better.

I’m thankful for that.

That’s my thankful thoughts today.

What are you thankful for today?

I have a passion for encouraging weary worn out mothers to find joy in everyday motherhood and peace in unlikely places. I have two elementary school boys, one nerdy husband, and two cats. I have a strange fascination for bad puns, the color pink, socks, and books. I worry about running out of toilet paper, wine, and chocolate.. I serve an amazing God. I live an ordinary life filled with wonder.
