Daily Prompt: The meaning of love


stop by and see us

What does love mean to you?

by Scott Berkun on August 5, 2011

Topic #210:

What does love mean to you?
We talk about love all the time, but rarely do we sit down and think about what it is.
How our behavior helps us get more or less of the kind of love we desire.

How does platonic love differ from romantic love?
How does the love we get from a parent differ from the love we get from a friend?
Or a dog?
Is love a feeling or a set of behaviors?

This topic suggested by Timmer at Timmer’s blog.

There are so many forms of love.
Truly love should be unconditional no matter who or what it is directed to.

Animals love unconditionally no matter who their owner is.

Daily Prompt: Life Is Intense


IMG_20130718_124818

 

Daily Prompt: Intense!

 

Describe the last time you were surprised by the intensity of a feeling you had about something,
or were surprised at how strongly you reacted to something you thought wouldn’t be a big deal.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us INTENSE.

When I broke my two fingers on my left hand in June, at first I thought it was not going to be a big deal since I write with my right hand.

As the time progressed, I found myself unable to do so many things that I was not aware that I had performed with my left hand,
until I actually went to do them.

This fact began to terrify me.  I was not used to dropping items.  To have to stop from doing things that I love such as type (blog) or even to crochet.

To do the dishes was a total nightmare.  It is a good thing that we had a steady stream of Tupperware and Corelle Ware dishes.
If I had a quarter for every one that I dropped then I could take a nice vacation in Costa Rica.

The pain was incredible and it still is.  The therapy was intense and really helped until I reached a point that the therapy came to a dead halt.
This is as good as it gets.
With my hubby coming upon his surgery and my recent problems with my thyroid having a growth I am a little overwhelmed at times.

I just take a deep breath, say a little prayer and put on my big girl panties to start my day.

Child Praying

 

It is called living my life.  I am not any different than most people.
I look around me and I am thanking God several times a day for having most of my body parts which are functioning.

That I have a warm home, a loving hubby, loving pets, warm food on my table and love of several friends.

My family and grand children are all wonderful, beautiful (or handsome) and healthy.

I am able to start to blog again and share my thoughts about life.

What are your thoughts on life and do you live a quite life or is it also intense for you.
Do you have special items that you feel blessed about?  Please share them in the comments.

I would love to hear your thoughts.

Have a wonderful day,

Tammye Honey

Daily Prompt: Laughing So Hard


Daily Prompt: From the Gut

Tell us about the last time you had a real, deep, crying-from-laughing belly laugh.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us JOYFUL.

The last time that I laughed really hard was when I had company and she showed me a video

I thought it was very sweet at the end with the message to their mother.

This tells me that I have not laughed hard since shortly after Mother’s Day.

Daily Prompt: Is Love Enough?


Daily Prompt: The Road Less Traveled

Pinpoint a moment in your past where you had to make a big decision.
Write about that other alternate life that could have unfolded.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us OTHER.

A short story of fiction, to fit the occasion.

It was a stormy evening, much like the past week of every evening there being storms.
 She laid curled up in the bed with her dogs thinking about her day.
She thought about the turmoil that her hubby’s drinking caused each day.
It had not started this way.  She had no clues in the beginning to know.
He did not drink at all the entire time they had dated, right into their first year of marriage.

Had it been the four friends who had died within a month of each other?
Was it the straw that broke the camels back to make him lose his will power?
Rationing seemed to work some days, then there were the days that he was too much.
She would walk out and just hand him the small remains of the bottle to have a moments peace.

As she looked around at the devastation going on around the world she wondered if it was better elsewhere.
To start again, at her age.  The thought sounded so exhausting.
She watched her friends and their relationships.
Some appeared happy, yet she felt a sense that all was not right with them either.
She looked around her own life and thought about what was good.  
She looked at what had been built by the two of them in a relatively short time.

Perhaps running away was not the answer.
She prayed daily for an answer and each night before she closed her eyes.
Hoping that God would show her what was the right thing to do
She had a lot invested in the relationship just to call it quits.

It was a long and winding road ahead and she knew it.  
Was it a fork in the road where she had to make a decision?
Could it be that just a few trees had fallen to block the path she was currently on?
She decided to just rely on her faith to get her through.  
She would let God handle the situation as she had in the past.
She knew this was the only answer that made sense to her.
