It’s February and I was tasked with writing this month’s blog about “LOVE.” When Joshua first asked me to do it, I’m embarrassed to admit, I did one of those small internal groans. I thought the subject seemed a little cliché – you know, February… Love… But after I pondered it a bit longer, I realized that LOVE is the best subject in the world, and it really is very nice that we have February to remind us of it. So, I’ve been gathering a list of things I LOVE. I was only going to share 10, but, oops, 10 turned into 20 (plus). I got carried away. These are in no particular order:
I LOVE Brach’s Peanut Clusters, and I LOVE that a very sweet person just sent me some in the mail.
I LOVE working with and living with the finest people I know in the world – my own family.
I LOVE the color green and how green surrounds me during springtime in Branson.
I LOVE great music and that my home is filled with it.
I LOVE it when people are just nice.
I LOVE being “Mammy” to the two most amazing little guys in the world – Ivan and August.
I LOVE the peace and quiet and creativity of the early morning hours.
I LOVE my Dad.
I LOVE making soup in the wintertime.
I LOVE snuggly blankets and any moment I can capture to put one to use.
I LOVE all the amazing things I can do on my iPhone, and that there are such smart people in the world who figure out how to make things like iPhones.
I LOVE beautiful fabric and what it can become.
I LOVE the smell of Auntie Anne’s pretzels and Cinnabon Cinnamon Rolls.
I LOVE clean, white, warm towels out of the dryer. I LOVE that I have a dryer.
I LOVE that our home is gathering place for all the people that I LOVE.
I LOVE the happy sounds of my ukulele. I LOVE the amazing sounds of Bobby Blackburn’s guitar.
I LOVE the people in my life that are creative and positive and who work so hard to make my life easier. The Bretts Show team is full of them.
I LOVE being in a business that allows me to connect with so many amazing people – our colleagues, our audience, our fans who all have become our friends.
I LOVE being loved by my family, my friends and mostly by my Heavenly Father and my Savior.
I know that I have to quit writing my LOVE list at some point, so I will leave it there; but what’s so amazing is that it could go on and on and on. There really is so much to LOVE in the world. And I LOVE that February reminds me of it all. Thanks, Joshua, for asking me to do this. (Sometimes it’s good to be cliché!)
