Feelin' The Love
I am feelin' the love today. Yes indeed. Every once in awhile, out of the blue, at the weirdest times, I get this overwhelming feeling of love for my husband. It only lasts a few seconds, but my heart swells and I am nearly brought to tears. It's like a reconfirmation that I chose the right guy 24 years ago. I have never doubted that. He's a wonderful guy.
But this post isn't about my husband. It's about people in general, a few specifically. This morning I was sitting at my desk and out of the blue felt this warmth coming from inside - - and I knew right away what it was - PEOPLE ARE GOOD!! Yea for good people!!! Of course, there are mean people (or "naughty" people as a friend of mine says) in the world. But, I don't want to talk about them - - - blech! This is a love fest post, not a downer post.
If you look, and sometimes you don't have to look very hard, you will see good people all around you. I see goodness in the posts that I read, and that is why I have such affection for all my blogging friends. And if you doubt me, my blogging buddies, go back and read some of your own posts and you will see what awesome people you are.
I see goodness in my friends who are so willing to drop whatever they are doing to go to the rescue of friends in need. Or strangers in need. I see goodness in my friends' children, who, even at a young age, have the spirit of service and often make great sacrifices in order to serve. There is great joy in serving others, and they have discovered that.
I see such goodness in my own children, and in my siblings. And in my mother, who has found that she can do things she never thought she could!
And I see goodness in strangers, whose faces radiate kindness.
There is goodness all around, we just need to open our eyes. Heck! We need to BE those good people! Good people rule!!
Yes, indeed. I'm feelin' the love today.
