I offer my heart

Because I know not what to say nor how to say it, I offer my heart.

Because it is a burden no one person should have to carry alone, I offer my heart.

Because there are no words to express the sorrow I feel, I offer my heart.

Because I know that love can bridge any distance, I offer my heart.

Because I care and wish it to be felt, I offer my heart.

To Kelly & Jerry, tonight I offer my heart.

Love & loss

To love is to risk loss.  It's a fact of life, and it's inevitable.

Yet how important it is to love, and to love with all your heart.

It is what puts the spark in life, what makes it worth living.  Even knowing that one day the love you feel for a parent, a spouse, a dear friend or a cherished pet may cause you great pain, it is still worth every second. 

To feel your heart overflow with love when looking into the eyes of a beautiful friend, hearing the laughter of your mom, or being held in the arms of your spouse, that is what life is all about. 

So let us love the ones we're with, love them with all our hearts; and let us be grateful for the ones we've loved and lost, for they will remain in our hearts forever.

So I'm thinking about insecurities today and how they can stop us from doing things, or make us second-guess ourselves, make us do things that we know we shouldn't be doing, or not do things we should.

They can be so powerful, so overwhelming that our thoughts and feelings can turn on a dime and, without even realizing it, we go from a positive mood to a negative mood.

We can be so sure about something one minute, then so unsure the next.

And when this happens to me I am so fortunate to have wonderful, loving people around who come in and save me from myself.  With their loving, caring words they show me the flaws in my thinking and help lift me up.  There's nothing like knowing you're loved and supported to help you grow and become a better, more self-confident person.

Feeling very grateful for the wonderful people that surround me and sending them all my love ♥♥♥
