Teachings Tuesday: Love Wholeheartedly
There are not a lot of photos of Jeff and I, and I kind of like it this way. Why, you ask? Because the happy moments should be the ones you treasure in your heart. You do not need to tell the world you are happy, you just need to feel it.
This photo was taken after I told Jeff we really do not have that many photos together, and I was having one of those “girl days” when you feel unloveable. He took out his phone and snapped a couple of photos. This one was my favorite, so I sent it to myself and used it as a background image on my phone for those moments I feel “unloved,” and they keep me smiling.
I do not post much about us on social media because at the end of the day, I just like to treasure the moments we have together as a family. Jeff means so much to me, and I like to show him in other, more private ways. I send him text messages about how much I love and miss him, and cannot wait for him to come home. I leave him random notes thanking him for the things he does for our family, and more. I love everything about him, even the things that I probably would not find attractive in someone else, such as his smoking habit, but it makes him “Jeff,” and I would not be able to genuinely say I love him without loving his not-so lovable habits. 🙂
