What Love is, and Feels like..and other thoughts!
Age Group: Adult
Love is a many splendored thing!
it makes you feel so lightheaded and spiritually free, and happy!
You cannot help but float, endlessly into the wide open abyss of true and utter happiness!
I think Love has helped me regain who I am, as a human being, all over again, no bull, on this either!
It has changed me...I can love somebody so much, , and much more than just sitting there, and thinking that love is "nothing"...which I have done..thank God, I am NOT there in that space any longer!
I love without having ill feelings...or being necessarily awestruck by the person I love....even though at times I am...simply amazed by him...he makes me feel wonderful and happy, and content..I have to say I love him dearly...and I have learned to appreciate more and more how much, and how much more I love others as well, in this world!
I don't take everything for granted, but, I have learned to take one day at a time, slowly, and to see little things for great things in this world as well. I think that it's better to see things like this, than to feel overwhelmed and to just think that the whole world is always going to be standing there for me.......I have to learn to appreciate what to love..and why?!
On, the Dear Abby letters.....I think that it is okay to tell somebody that you love them...how cool is that? People were doing this long before I was ever born...hey in the sixties there was an awful lot of "Free lovin" goin' around!
It 's sure better than to hate, any time, and anywhere!!!!
I would rather be able to reach out to others than not! I can't stand those people that have" secret agendas up their sleeves!" can''t stand when we are such hypocrites..even I get that way, and I hate it..and often/usually try to correct it, in myself...as I err, but, am only human!
I once told a girl that I had met at an airport to go up to this guy that she had liked once in her high school (he was at the same airport) , and tell him that she used to have a large crush on him...she did it..now, he may not have reacted the way that she had thought that he would (not much reaction from him, unfortunately! kind of like a dud! LOL!) but, at least she got a chance to tell him! I think that I would def' do that....there are times that I turn "chicken" but, I usually am not that scared...I feel, heck, if I gotta , then I gotta tell that person just how much of an impact that they made in my life! why the heck not?! Ya know?
Besides, I think that it usually either stuns the person and or makes them feel pretty great inside!
and He** you only live once , so go for it!!!
~~~~~~~~~Dear Abby Letters~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Dear Abby by Abigail Van Buren
SWEET MEMORIES OF YOUNG LOVE LAST FOR A LIFETIME
DEAR ABBY: This is in reference to the letter from "Shannon in Houston" (6/25) , the mother who thinks it's inappropriate for her 11-year-old son to tell his girlfriend he loves her. I agree with your answer, and would like to point out that love at such a young age is devoid of the ulterior motives of more mature love: It's not physical, and it's not social or money-driven. It is untainted love, love for love's sake.
Besides, children learn to love by being loved themselves. That mother must have done something right, as her young son knows how to give someone love -- a skill many people never acquire during their lifetime. -- LOVING MOM OF LOVING SONS
DEAR LOVING MOM: Point well taken. I firmly believe children are able to feel love for each other -- because I was one of them. Read on:
DEAR ABBY: You ran a letter from a mom who felt that her 11-year-old son couldn't know what love is. While it may be true for some kids, it's not true for all. Parents should let their kids develop emotionally, not belittle their feelings.
I fell in love with a boy in my class when I was about that age. Those feelings remained throughout grade school and high school. He was the first love of my life, and I'll always have special feelings for him -- even though it has been years since I last saw him.
Even if the girl doesn't turn out to be her daughter-in-law, these relationships will prepare her son to be the man he will one day become. -- CASSIE IN GRESHAM, ORE.
DEAR ABBY: That mother missed an important teaching moment, an important milestone in her son's life. She should have validated his feelings because children do feel deeply. When my daughter was in love for the first time at 13, we talked about what love means. It means wanting only the best for the other person. You care about the safety and welfare of that person and always treat him (or her) with kindness and respect. You would never encourage someone you love to do anything unlawful, dangerous or harmful. And you will know he loves you if he feels this way about you.
I repeated the same litany as she was growing up. My daughter is now 22, and still talks to me about her romances and almost everything else. -- BEEN-THERE MOM, ENGLEWOOD, FLA.
DEAR ABBY: I am now 91. You gave that mother the right advice. I wish someone had told my mother the same. She scoffed at my "puppy love, " but it has endured -- just as Charles Schulz in his "Peanuts" strip never forgot his "little red-headed girl."
Eighty years have passed since I fell in love with Margaret Ruprect back in Dubuque, Iowa. I can still remember her golden hair shining in the sun and her laughter. I only got to kiss her once, but I'll never, ever forget her. If she's still living, I hope she sees this and knows I still love her. -- BOB C., ATASCADERO, CALIF.
DEAR ABBY: I'd like to address my comments to "Shannon in Houston." I am confused. What are the most frequent words you say to your child? "I love you, " again and again. You show your son your love every day. But as soon as he professes love for someone outside the family, you tell him "he's too young to understand what love is."
How can that possibly be true, if he has been raised in a loving family? -- JOANN J., TAMPA, FLA.
Live in the light, smile the biggest of smiles, and laugh always! (One of my motto's) !!!
