Love is Love, no matter which way you say it💚

How we recognize love influences our relationships. There’s five different love languages, and each one is ok. The common denominator is that they all say the same: I love you in ways other than using those words.

Taken from Thought Catalog, here are fifty alternatives for I love you. May these help you recognize love in all it’s forms.

1. “Do you want to wear my coat?”

2. “How was your exam?”

3. Checking in when they have the flu.

4.”Would you like anything from the store?”

5. “How did you sleep last night?”

6. Surprising them with their favorite candy.

7. “Don’t forget to bring your umbrella—it’s supposed to rain.”

8. “I saw this and thought of you.”

9. “Your hair looks great like that.”

10. Reminding them that their hard work doesn’t go unnoticed.

11. Sharing your favorite food.

12. Letting them have the front seat.

13. Putting two sugars in their coffee even when they say they want one because you know they like it better that way.

14. “I’m proud of you.”

15. “Listen to this song I heard—it reminded me of you.”

16. Sending a funny picture you saw online.

17. Washing their dishes even when they don’t ask you

18. “How is your family?”

19. Having Gatorade ready the morning after a rough night out.

20. “There’s traffic on the highway; take the back road.”

21. “Tell your mom I say hi.”

22. Listening to their music even when you don’t like it.

23. Bringing breakfast in bed.

24. Putting on the kettle before they even ask for tea.

25. Sharing relevant news articles with them because you know they’d be interested.

26. Helping them study for a test.

27. Going to their big game.

28. Bringing an extra water bottle when you know they’ll be in the sun.

29. “Do you need any help with that?”

30. Waiting up for them to get home.

31. “How was your day?”

32. “You should take a break—you work too hard.”

33. Taking the long way home so you both can keep talking.

34. “Good luck on your interview.”

35. Greeting them at the airport.

36. Stopping by just because.

37. Giving up your seat on the bus so they can sit.

38. Letting them go in front of you in line.

39. “You look like you could use a hug.”

40. Bringing them lunch at work.

41. “I really want your opinion on something.”

42. “You were right.”

43. “You can pick the movie tonight.”

Warning: Strong Language and Possible Triggers

I heard a man, a father, on a YouTube kids video, tell him son….. Not to pick a certain toy because that particular toy “was for girls”.

That got me thinking. This black man is telling his boy he can’t have a toy that girls “typically” use for play.

Some white mom tells her daughter to keep her purse close because criminals are often black males? How are these two scenarios different?

This is how we teach sexism, descrimination, and division to our children. This is how we pass down segregation to our future… And the hate continues.

An individual is going to be different from BOTH parents. This individual has a God-Given RIGHT to choose for him/herself. Along the way: individuals, adults, media, many different stimuli, will try and influence.

Of all that’s influential, why the fuck (excuse my French but this has me boiling) would a parent choose to limit his /her child’s growth, identity, social inclusion, diverse acceptance, and enriched future by disallowed a toy a girl usually has. Why would a parent choose to be a negative influence.

To all of you bitching “it’s just one toy” or “It’s not that serious”…

You’re apart of the problem. It takes one lesson to learn bullshit nonsense. It takes one instance for hate to be planted into a child….

Don’t be ” that ” Dad….

It’s flattering to reference an individual of any talent, as long as credit is rightfully acknowledged. We are all gifted with blessings, and what a world it is to have access to them. Our lives are better, more enriched. It’s the respect of due credit that displays thanks and appreciation for the gift.

Namastè

Good Morning Y’all. My brain is going a mile a minute, despite my lack of coffee intake. That’s very unusual, but, that’s the perfect adjective to describe my life right now.

It’s Thursday, a cold 25 degrees. I already miss summer. We’re up, getting my older daughter ready for school. She’s not entirely recovered from her head cold, but she’s feeling better. Calandra is doin ok. She’s mommy’s little sweet pea cuddle bug.

I’m alright, I suppose. One day at a time, working through the intensity of my emotions. Are there any other HSP’s or INFJs in the nearby blogosphere? If you know of someone, please introduce him/her to me. Anyway, back to these emotions. What I don’t understand makes me frustrated… When I get frustrated, I cry. Sometimes, I don’t believe it’s because of what initially happened, but some other aspect of the situation. For example, I’m not sad that my ex and I are not together, but how it happened has me really shook up.

Since I don’t go out much, I socialize on apps. This one has been my favorite by far. I can’t imagine my life without writing. Of course I don’t feel I’m a big deal, or that I even write exceptionally well. I do feel writing is an outlet for me to convey my thoughts. It’s a platform (that’s the word I was trying to find the other day! Facepalm) to release and create. The possibilities are endless, and my thoughts are on paper. I can create a short story about a love I wish happened to me.. or an ending I feel better suited for my ex. It’s my writing, and I may write as I please. There’s so much freedom in that.

Ok, well you all have a fantastic Thursday. The weekend is almost here. Keep warm if you’re in that part of the globe. Keep an eye out for future posts.

Heart for Humanity

Since she was a little girl, she has had a heart for the well-being of others. Her church has organized a missionary trip to Guatemala, and she jumped at the chance to go. She wanted to broaden her horizon of the third world countries, and better understand the worlds outside her own. Through her international studies in college, God’s took her to Uganda and Tanzania. The eye opening experiences were equally humbling and heartbreaking.

    #FOWC: Center

    ” I believe, in the center of it all, all that lives, all that grieves, and all that matters… In the center of all the hate, the unexpected blessings, and the prayers unanswered.., in the sunrises and early birds’ song, in the second guessing, second chances, and second half of life…love is all one sees. Love is what makes everything and anything “be”💕

    From a child, to a grown “man”….

    His life has been a fusion of diverse expierences.

    A story of bumpy roads, secure places, some

    questionable choices. But they were his.

    Early on, he owned his life.. He decided what it’d be…

    With a willingness to follow his Almighty,

    In obedience and faith, authentically with love and mercy.

    He wasn’t a King, in a big castle, not the owner of a

    Lamborghini, He wore simple style and drove with

    practicality. Time took him to a chapel, and to a sweet hospital nursery,

    Forced him to face truth, death, and suffering.

    He’s seen hate, unexpected seizure, and secession of soldiers in war.

    He’s seen the most horrid shifts in the major corporate industry,

    And shades of every color,  brushed effortlessly into lives that crossed paths with his.

    His story’s is like all the others, far from perfect, flawless, or

    Finished.

    This man was born to a Jewish woman…. To a German man…

    He was born unable to hear well, though that allowed for imaginative

    Internal dialogs. His childhood allowed for him to see new places,

    To explore that which was in his immediate surroundings.

    He traveled to the assisted living residence, the library, and animal

    Shelter. He volunteerd at the Homeless Shelter soup kitchen; and occasionally

    Visited the halfway house. He spent endless time in observation, a powerful

    And undervalued talent of most.

    Throughout his life, the spice he’s always craved, the true

    meaning in his pages, has been this uncanny acceptance

    of what is…

    He has spent his life embracing the acceptance of what’s

    different, respecting that this spice is simply the truths,

    That varies from one to the next.  He hasn’t been granted

    authority to conceptualize and label the thoughts of  those

    who disagree.

    He understands his life as reality, seeking to continuously

    grow and enrich it further. In doing so, kindness and

    compassion has lead him to unimaginable moments.

    These have always been his greatest treasure.
