Loving is the Easy Part…. For Me

You might find that as an odd statement, but its true.  I have always found it easy to love.  Chalk it up to a loving family; as well as an extended loving family.  We grew up as huggers; it was normal, as well as natural.  So much to the point that I realized as I got older it was better to ask if it was ok before doing so.  As I came to learn not everyone was like our family.

Along with love, comes compassion and understanding.  I have always said I love unconditionally, because I do.  Its my nature and it is a part of who I am.  I am not saying that everyone should be that way, because we are all different.  Always the optimist, I try to find the good in people, but in a world of crazy, sometimes it can be difficult.  I used to think that only bad things happened to bad people.  Many  years later, I have found this statement to not be true.  Bad things happen to good people.  I have said it before and I will say it again.  We weren’t born with a book on how to live life.  They do not hand out manuals before you leave the hospital, so you take life as it comes, and hope it turns out ok.

The hard part is when a family member or a close friend goes through a difficult time.  Nothing you seem to say is good enough (in your opinion).  You sometimes doubt yourself, or question why this situation happened to you, or them. It’s harder yet to want to fix it; but you can’t.  I have always been a ‘fixer’ until I realized that I can’t always do that.  I do not have the power to fix things that are out of my hands.  I still struggle with this; but when a situation arises, I remind myself; and I pray. Only because loving  is the easy part… for me.

Like many families, our family has went through our share of tough times and great times.  We are a very close family; so loving is the easy part.  When our family experiences a bump in the road, or a deep pothole; we hurt together also.  Our hearts ache, but amongst all of this, we continue to love; because that is when we realize, we are not alone.  We can cry together without reservation and support one another through it all.

I feel very blessed to be a part of a family that through whatever is going on in our lives; we are who we are.  I know not everyone is as lucky to have what we have, and I am thankful.

If you are reading this, thank you.  If you pray; please pray for my family during one of our ‘deeper potholde times’ and if you don’t that is ok; just please put us in your thoughts.

We have the faith that  2015 will be a year of healing for a special member of our family; as well as our family itself. So I continue to say; Loving is the Easy Part…. For Me.

  • Your family sounds much like mine. We have a great big ole’ family that just keeps getting bigger and bigger. We’re all huggers and we say I love you – all the time. I never realized other people weren’t like that as I was growing up so needless to say, there were some awkward situations that I found myself in. This is one of my favorite scriptures in the bible. Growing up, I was taught that love is a verb. It’s meant to be put into action….not just something you “feel”. I’ll say a prayer for your “pot hole”time that you’re going through.

    • Aww thank you Jenni! It is always awesome to know that there are others that have families such as mine. I understand the awkward part as it happened to me on more than 1 occasion. Also thank you for the prayers.
