We always get things from people without knowing it. Many will deny this but unconsciously we all do. If we love someone for who they are, you may feel a warm glow for just being around them. You love to make them feel good as you believe that they have a perfect personalities etc. You love that feeling so you are there with them. YOU are getting something out of it. If you love someone for what they give you then you love them for what they give. However I think everyone agree that first one is or could be more of a substantial relationship.
If I only loved others for what they gave me instead of for who they are then I would have stopped loving loads of people in my life by now, and that’s not the case. They should be loved for who they are but also for how they are with you too. As you get older you don’t waste your time as much on selfish people.
It is hurtful to continue to love that which hurts you so although many continue to love those that are bad for them, I think maturity changes your view and makes you more discriminating with your love.
Family is the toughest one, that you want to love them, but some are just bad, and prove it to you over and over again. That’s just almost too painful when it happens and you just wish you never had any feelings for them at all, but you do.
THAT IS WHERE CHRIST comes into play……… – I can do ALL things through Christ –
Mothers and daughters have a tie that runs deep and strong. A bond that cant be severed by time or distance. But, as in every relationship, you must give it love and attention for it to grow and blossom. Spending time with your mom is very important. Mothers and daughters should get together and try to think of ways that will allow them not only to have fun together, but that will strengthen your friendship. It really doesn’t matter where you go or what you do, as long as it appeals to both of you.
Designate ” a day” and maybe it can be Sunday as a family day, attend church together, go to dinner, spend an afternoon at the park and watch a movie that night. Whatever you chose, the only thing that’s important is that your spending time together and bonding. You’re developing and strengthening your friendship.
Spending time with the people we love is important, its really more important than our jobs or any other of the million and one responsibilities we must cater to every day. It really doesn’t matter how we do it, as long as we make some time everyday for those we love.
I did not get into the whole Fast and Furious series until the 4th movie and I fell in love with the cast…. Indeed am I praying for his family as well in regards to his death over the weekend ( last week ) – He died in a car crash and burned to death….
He played roles of a car drag racer and he died in a fast car….speed was the factor – we just NEVER KNOW when we will see our loved ones… We get up and leave our houses everyday THINKING that we will see our wives, husbands, kids etc AGAIN….in a few hours etc…. but this is prime example of how short life is –
He was about to go to his own charity and never made it –
I swear this restaurant is such a family atmosphere BUT I’m not too keen on the overall experience there…….
Besides “the game playing area”….. it feels like an overly fast paced restaurant that wants to get as many people IN ….just as much as they want to get the people OUT.
Every time I’m at this place I feel like I’m a part of a herd of CATTLE…. Eat…talk then hirry and get to the play area because we need this table!!! At LEAST that “the company” was amazing so it made it all worth it!!! …Uggghhh…. not MY favorite restaurant ….
Today is MY mommy’s birthday!!!!!!!!! After ALL of what she has been through lately I am honored to celebrate her awesome LIFE at 74 of age…… Thank you Jesus!
Food, prayer, gifts, games, laughter and amazing fellowship just blesses her very soul right now….. (she’s soo happy right now)
Personally, I am indeed just sooo grateful AND thanful for TIME with family… Time is something that cannot be “bought” so you have to really enjoy and respect quality vs. quantity. ….
Glad to make my mom happy with the little things in this life… She is just happy to have some of her family with her…… Making her SMILE is indeed a goal that I strive to meet daily with God’s direction.
Okay!!! Just got back to the hospital hospital again…. I wrote and posted this but forgot to hit upload! !!
Welp… from not sleeping at all yet..I’m feeling just a little great right now… LIFE is such a beautiful thing when ALL hell seems to break loose BUT YOU STILL have what is most important to YOU! !!!
Well, my Mother indeed is it…the most important thing to ME. .. (So serious) and as she slept…..sooo peacefully!! Then cracked open one eye making sure we was STILL there was hilariously funny BUT also made it hard to leave!!!!
So we acted silly (silently) until we knew she was OUT for the count!!!
Welp….. been up since yesterday at 3 am trying to get things straight…. Mind – Body – Soul and Spirit via my mommy cakes! I tell you… it is always something going on but God is the ULTIMATE HEALER RIGHT!!
We played around and acted super silly as we got mom to the hospital and waited until her surgery was over….We talked about family as usual…new traditions…the ups and the downs….different types of friendships / relationships…. how we can do things going forward….the holidays…the family reunion…..what is missing.. etc…..etc….
I was exhausted by at least this EARLY afternoon! – LOL ….I was sleepy….smelled a bit “interesting” ..had to leave and go to 2 different appointments….get cleaned up…pick my son up..feed him..help him with homework AND STILL COME BACK TO THE HOSPITAL!…
My niece is standing here talking to my mom and just being ever so grateful to the Lord for bringing her out of surgery. … She sooo sweet!!!
Well honey- praise the Lord that ALL went well because the story that her doctor shared with me and my oldest sister was mind boggling via my mommy’s “previous condition” before she went under the knife… God is amazing and I soo enjoyed the look on the doctor’s face when he could NOT EXPLAIN NOR UNDERSTAND how she was even still alive –
I simply told him that it was by the GRACE OF GOD – Gosh..I absolutely LOVE this woman!!
