I love anyone and anything that makes me laugh.
Laughter is such a gift to give anyone
, and I value that gift highly. Whenever you hear someone say, "Laughter is the best medicine.", believe it. It can cure anything... I'm convinced of it.
I love my dog.
She's the cutest little thing ever... 19 pounds of pure unconditional love and affection! Whether she's curled up in a ball, sleeping on the only sunny spot in the room, or running (actually bouncing) beside me when we go out for our walks, or trying to lick my face after we play catch, or putting her face in the flowers in my garden to catch the fragrance... there is just no end to the joy she gives me. I bless the day I took her home with me.
I love my friends.
They are the most whacked-out, intelligent, loving, caring, interesting, funny group of nutballs on this earth. I love each of them. I am fond of the saying "Friends are the family you get to choose.", because it is true. I chose some with great care, and some, I just happened upon (like you!), but I value each one greatly. With my parents gone from me at an early age, they are the family I made for myself, and I love them.
I love making bread.
The kneading and kneading, the smell while it's baking, the way the butter melts into it while it's still warm from the oven. The way the jam or the honey melts into the butter. It's all good!
I love chocolate.
The darker, the better. The richer, the better. It never fails to make me feel better, no matter how badly I feel. I love good ice cream, and home-made cookies, too, but I limit them to special occasions. Chocolate is the one thing I never deny myself. If I feel I need a piece, I eat one. It's better (and safer) than Prozac!
I love the arts.
Books, movies, plays, poetry, paintings, photographs, crafts, a really fine meal... everything! -- all these things are created (were created) to bring joy and to express what is/was in the heart of the artist. It takes a certain audacity of spirit to be so certain that what you have inside you needs to be expressed as much as you need to breathe in order to stay alive. I admire that level of audacity, that courage to put your heart and soul out there for all to see. So, I guess I not only love the arts, but I love the artists, too. I may not always like
what they create, but I always love
that they did.
I love flowers.
I love love.
Whatever form it takes, it is a wonder, and I am a sucker for it! It's the one thing that could change the world. I am always hopeful in the presence of love, and these days, there's too little to give us hope. Whether it is in the form of humanitarianism, or peace-making, or kindness to living things, or romantic love, it revolutionizes and changes whatever comes in contact with it forever. That's a mighty power!
