n. a feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as for a parent, child, or friend.
It's going to be short but oh so sweet. Jared has several days off and we're using them to go and visit precious people.
We'll talk and we'll laugh, we might even cry. We'll eat yummy food and stay up late and play games or just visit. We'll make memories, take some pictures, share some love.
Because when you love people, you do that sort of thing. You drive several hours to spend one hour with them. You let them know how special they are to you. That they are a gift to you. You get a crick in your back from how you were holding your baby while talking to your Mom. Because she is so special to you and you love hearing her voice, her smile and her wisdom.
Sometimes I wish I could just gather up all my family (and now that I'm married, that's a lot of people!) and just hold them close, freeze those special moments with them, love on them. But that's hard to do right now. Know that you are loved, my precious people. I can't wait to be with you all again! And do those crazy things that make us family.
It'll be quiet on here for a few days but I'll have lots to write about and pictures to post when we get back. :-)
Love on your people. Let them know how much they mean to you. Make some memories. You always have today.
