Hope weekend was great for each and everyone of you.
Mine has been a little hectic, but thankfully so blessed and happy for the unplanned and unexpected homecoming of all my Kids and Grands for Father’s Day weekend.
Some are sticking around until after the 4th of July weekend, too.
Full houses are not uncommon or a problem for us, thank goodness.
We had bought the house across the street from people who were building a new one and agreed to lease it back to them until their’s was complete. They moved out in May and we’d just started to make a few renovations, just in case Sons decided to take it over. It’s as big as mine, just doesn’t border the lake, not always a bad thing either. We can see each others’ front porches and driveways and garages, great for security, plus close enough for wireless security systems to overlap each others.
Kids and Grands were so happy to be together, I had to turn off my hearing aids at times. Joyful noises are always a welcome distraction from anything that might detract from the fun and happiness in anyone’s life. It can even make you forget silly stuff that you shouldn’t be thinking about anyway. Children have a way of making you sort out what’s really important in life if you’ll let them.
Children love unconditionally until we screw up and teach them otherwise, don’t they.
I’m wishing you all to remember the lessons of unconditional love we were born with, not the hurtful ones we’ve let others teach us. Love is more important to us all than anything else in life. Without love, this isn’t life, it’s existence and exsistence by itself will not make you happy or joyful.
Life is too short not to be happy.
If it’s not making you happy, I pray you will find the way to happiness. Love is the key, for yourself and others. Without love, life sucks all the happiness out of you, and that causes all kinds of mental and physical problems that will affect you for the rest of your life.
I can’t promise you anything else except that without Love, life sucks and you will be miserable and make others miserable, without really trying.
So my wish for you is Love, abundantly and true.
YES, yesterday with my Clan for Father’s Day reminded me that Love is the answer, regardless of the question. Savor every minute you can, make changes in your life, accept yourself, never settle for less than you deserve.
