To be loved is the feeling of being spoiled. I choose to take a positive spin of this word tonight. This journey is one that has left it’s mark, I might even say, if we make it I am scarred but both for the good and the bad. I often have quiet moments at night where I can reflect on all that is happening around me. But one thing I have is love and it is endless and priceless.

When I open my eyes and face the day I have my Savior that gives purpose and reason for that day. My morning starts with my lover whether together or apart, I always like to know his day has begun. My girls love and exuberant excitement for life overwhelms my heart with their childlike faith. These dependent yet faithful members fill me with love. Yet my cup still gets more.

I watch as the extended family pulls together to be extra hands, food providers or just a playmate to my team. I have enjoyed visits with family from near and far. We sit and talk of the good, the hard and the reality of life, and then remember His faithfulness. Family is irreplaceable on this type of walk, gratitude maybe not be expressed enough. Love abounds.

I sit and receive texts full of Gods truth and reminders of love that is coming from a far. I lay and listen to voicemails and smile at your words. I read of the prayers that stretch well beyond my ability to comprehend. We visit and talk together, maybe even cry together, but we are together! We receive gifts that encourage and remind us you are physically here. Emails flow expressing your broken hearts and your hope. This is all love being received by a family that is being carried by you. Are you helping? Yes! We hear you! We see you! We love you! And your love has encouraged us to keep moving and walking in His hope.

Thank you Father for the way you have loved us through your people: family, strangers, doctors, nurses, children, patients, clients, and friends. Being spoiled with love is a gift that we cherish!
