In our household there isn’t a shortage of love. It’s freaking everywhere! We like it that way. In fact, we love it this way!
Hugs are a daily occurrence around here. We give them out readily, and it took a long time to teach the girls they couldn’t hug just anyone. In this household, though, it’s ok. If someone needs a hug, we’re handing them out.
For fun, something I’ve started doing is just randomly saying, “HEY! I love you.” It gets the girls attention and then they immediately start giggling, repeat it back to me then pile on me for hugs.
When I say it, it looks something like this.
Of course, like I mentioned, when I say this and look like this, the girls do a little something like this.
Here’s the thing with Hey! I love you. Why should it just be reserved for the comfort of my home. I don’t like that only my kids and husband get this special love treatment. I may be biased, but this is awesome! I decided I’m sharing this with my friends too.
It’s important to share the love and remind our friends and family how much we love and appreciate them too. Last night I reminded my Blog Tribe that I love them. I honestly believe we choose our family and they are definitely family. In some cases we’re born into a fantastic family, but that doesn’t mean that family can’t grow into even more brilliance! I have so many people who I’ve adopted into my family and I love all of them.
Here’s the deal, if you’re reading this….
Hey! I love you!
Who are you going to share the love with? Tell me in the comments.
