LOVE- strong affection for another arising out of kinship or personal ties: affection based on admiration or common interests.


by Bobbie Ann Ray

LOVE has taught me Patience- there are times I have none. But when I slow down and listen most of the time I get enlightened.
LOVE has taught me to let it go- there are just some people that are not meant to be in my life anymore. They are not a positive in my life. I need to surround myself with those that love and accept me for who and what I am-and if they cannot be that person they just steal my thunder.
LOVE has taught me there are those in my life that love and accept me for Bobbie Ann- just a few of those important people in my life- Varsi, Leslie, Lonee, Deisha, and my mom. Thank each of you.
LOVE has taught me you do not always have to be in perfect agreement with another- you can listen to their opinions and move forward.
LOVE has taught me to choose my words carefully- once spoken you can never take them back.
LOVE has taught me acceptance- you never have to tell another their faults. We are all our own worst critics. The good Lord made each and everyone of us-and to criticize another is to criticize HIM!
LOVE has taught me to appreciate the little things. New socks, laughter, and a glass of wine after a stressful day.
LOVE has taught me generosity. That if I have and you need it I will try to give it to you.
LOVE has taught me to be a decent neighbor- sometimes cookies in the mailbox is the perfect answer.
LOVE has taught me that I love to grow things- I love to plant seeds, flowers, trees and vegetables to watch them grow.
LOVE has taught me that I love to sit at my kitchen table, listen to music and solve the world’s problems. I have sat at the kitchen table with young and old and cherish every experience I have had there.
LOVE has taught me its ok to cry- happy or sad. The older I get the more emotional I have become.
LOVE has taught me there are miracles everyday- the sunrise and sunset are just two daily miracles, marvel and stand in awe.
LOVE has taught me the greatest gift I have ever been given is my girls- I have not been the perfect mother. I never will be. BUT you know what they LOVE me anyway. Motherhood is the most important job I have ever done they are the greatest gift I have ever received.
Dogs are LOVE! I wanna be more like my dogs.
LOVE has taught me to love LIFE- make the most of every single day. Life is a precious gift. BE BRAVE.
LOVE is time. Give the ones you love your time, your undivided attention. Look them in the eye.
Love has taught me that I want to be in LOVE- it is a miraculous wondrous experience. I want someone to spend my life with. If I ever get the chance for a relationship again I will treat it as the blessing that it is. No shortcuts. 110% percent.
LOVE has taught me that I am not the person I want to be, that I am a work in progress. Love yourself as much if not more than you love others. This is not a selfish thing.
