A To Z Of Gratitude: L

L is for Love

I've been playing music and singing and dancing as I work on renovating our home. And how could I not when I'm doing it together with the most amazing man in the world?

"If I had my life to live over again... I'd find you sooner so I could love you longer."

Those of you who followed the story of how we met know what a long and oftentimes painful journey it was to finally arrive at this happily ever after. And how not a day goes by that I don't wake up grateful for this kind and gentle and generous and patient and loving soul who I am fortunate enough to be sharing this life with. Grateful for our love story.

Have a beautiful day, everyone.

    1. I'm sure whoever moves in will enjoy it. It's in a perfect location and the neighbourhood is very quiet.

  7. You have to through tough times to realize how fortunate you are. If you'd asked what word would be for L I'm sure all of your followers would have guessed.

  8. Hi, Martha! I may have been traveling, but you have certainly been on my mind, what with your impending move and your daughter going off to university! You're managing to keep your sense of humor, in spite of all the decluttering, cleaning, and painting. Loved that quote about finding The One sooner so you could love him longer. That's exactly how I feel about the Ever-Patient, Terry! Take care ~ don't work too hard!

    1. I can't imagine going through this world without a sense of humour! It's certainly helped me get through some tough times. That is wonderful about the traveling. I hope my husband and I get to do some of that when he's retired!

    1. No doubt about that! I count my lucky stars every day, especially considering what a shitty relationship I was in before. Night and day, I tell you. Night and day!
