I recently received my February issue of More magazine*. Being the February issue it, of course, featured plenty of stories about love in all of its facets. One of the things that has stayed with me was the letter-from-the-editor, Linda Lewis.
She noted that stopping to remember the things/people we love can be a natural boost when our spirits are low. She and I are both on the same page in feeling that a "gratitude journal" can be a bit too "touchy-feely" (her words, but a good description) and just not something that I could get into. Linda shared her love-list with us and asked her readers to shared theirs with her. I realized that it would make a great blog post so I stopped to think about my loves. Here's my bit of sharing for today:
Apple crisp served warm on a cold day
Big Bang Theory - Bazinga!!
Cats, all cats
Eating with friends
Finding forgotten money in pockets (woo hoo!)
Green......well, green anything
Kids - a certain pair who are 10 and 12 years old
Lord of the Rings - books and movies
National Geographic Channel
Ogling hot young guys on Crescent Street
Popping bubble wrap (c'mon, you never get too old for that!)
Reading books, magazines, newspapers...... really anything with words in it.
Singing to my tunes
X's and O's (xoxo)
Zzzzzzzz.....a good snooze
