reflecting on love


This past week I have been reflecting on my life, who I am, and who I want to become.  It all boils down to this man.  Who I am today is because of him.  Don't get me wrong, I know I am a strong independent woman, but I am a better ME because of him.  He supports and loves me unconditionally and his strength and faith are unwavering.  I am grateful everyday for him, his love and our family.

I love this image from Oh beautiful world.  I wonder if this is her love?  Either way, it is stunning.  I hope you all take some time to reflect on those you love and how they have shaped you into who you are today.

The beginning of love is to let those we love be perfectly themselves, and not to twist them to fit our own image. Otherwise we love only the reflection of ourselves we find in them. Thomas Merton

love the softness of your photo, april, and the high key tones of oh beautiful world's.

and blue elephant -- your quote is perfect for this post and theme.

if we remember the love, everything else falls into place.
