I Love

October 13, 2011

There has been a lot of stress.

A lot of yearning for what is so close yet so far.

A lot of struggle to get past what I don’t love about this situation.

And so, inspired by Lemmonex who was inspired by SheLikesPurple, I have created a Love List.

I love a good night’s sleep.  I love that I might someday get one.  I love the smell of new books.  The skin just in front of Hayden’s ear.  And the smell of a pot of homemade soup on the stove.  I love having a vision and someone to share it with.  I love having old friends who know what I am thinking even when I haven’t seen them in months or years.  I love checking the mail, even when I find nothing but junk in the box.  I love the way my great great grandmother’s gold ring looks on my finger.  And the fact that I can’t get it off.  I love my husband’s hands, with their sexy, long fingers.  I love black coffee in the morning and red wine in the afternoon.  I love that even though I am old enough to complain that it’s too loud, I can still rock it when I want to.  I love the Southern California sky.  I love the stars I can see from my new backyard.  I love getting good news.  And the thrill of sharing it with someone.  I love that I am a neat freak- because somebody has to keep things under control.  I love getting a text from Scott.  I love hearing my little boy say I love you.  I love throwing a party.  I love throwing things away.  I love the moment of meeting someone in the baggage claim- almost as much as I love coming home.  I love going to bed early.  I love rising before the sun to run.  And coming home in time to see my husband off to work.  I love that from time to time, I can still remember the look on his face when he saw me on our wedding day.

    Lovely list.

  6. […] I have a decent-sized list of excuses, I swear.  In the past six weeks I have destroyed a house, fallen in love, had a comeback, had a breakdown, remodeled a kitchen, and played soccer with Darth […]
