Love is the secret ingredient to Life.
First I grew up with both parents and I know how much they loved each other. I can always remember seeing them kiss each other when Dad went to work or came home. I always thought as a child my parents had just the best marriage. I remember when my Dad found out he had cancer and was only given six months to live. There love never changed. It just got stronger. I got a extra special lesson in love five months before my Dad passed away. I was in a terrible accident and I had to make lots of trips to the Dr's office. My Mom didn't drive but Dad did and he seen that every other day I was at the appointments. One day my Dr asked me how I got there since I shouldn't be driving. I told him my Dad. He said that's real love don't ever forget that. My Dad lived 3 yrs past what they said , which was just awesome.
I always had a deep love for children and in the small town I grew up I was called the local babysitter to call. When I was 17 I was told I would never be able to have a child. When I was 35 , I gave birth to a son Ridge , my first child and it wasn't the normal pregnancy. I didn't even know I was pregnant. A lot of people think it's silly and there is no way this could happen but it did. I remember not having much time to call anyone to tell them in the middle of the night but as soon as I seen that little boy and never knowing he was there so much LOVE. I have three daughters who have brought me so much LOVE also. I have three grown step-children who I LOVE just like my own.
I have this picture as a reminder of my three precious children who are a part of us everyday even though they live in Heaven. Every time I look at this I feel so much LOVE.
I also have been blessed with a wonderful husband who is very loving and is taking today and tomorrow off from his busy job. In the past couple months he has been working a lot. We have no big plans just spending time together because LOVE is the secret ingredient to Life
Most of all my favorite verse on LOVE ~
