My husband and I can't afford grand expensive gestures, but even if we could, I can't imagine any flashy gift that would mean more to me. If I receive a gift from the man I love, I don't expect jewelry or bouquets of roses. Often times when my husband is looking to surprise me, it'll be with a cd or book because he knows me well. That alone is a special gift. It's the simple acts of love that put a smile on my face and warm my heart.
I pray that my boys grow to be men like their father and that their future wives will appreciate the simple loving gestures as much as I do. While I want a great many blessings for my children, this one is towards the top of the list.... True compassionate considerate and whole hearted love to be given and shared with one special person.
If the money is gone, when the wrinkles and gray hair have appeared, or when life hands you more lemons than you can hold... what do you have? Do you have love? Real love? A kind considerate heart by your side? A faithful hand to hold? If you do, count yourself blessed. Are your heart, eyes, and mouth smiling because someone loves you and you love them back? Tell them or show them today with a simple loving gesture. Ain't love grand?
“A life without love is no life at all.”
“The best love is the kind that awakens the soul and makes us reach for more; that plants a fire in our hearts and brings peace to our minds.”
“The greatest thing you’ll ever learn is just to love and be loved in return.”
