Have you ever thought how much love you have within your family ? or the amount of love you feel towards your family ? It is probably a difficult question to answer,but one you know is tremendously big and overflowing in every direction, love is an emotion that we cannot measure, no matter how we try, love is an emotion that can fill us with joy, pride happiness and even sadness, a strange sadness that can really make you sob with tears of missing someone so much, it maybe someone we have lost or it maybe a family member who lives a distance from you. I was so happy yesterday, as I spent the day with my youngest son, he invited me for lunch, he lives about 100 km from me, and the weather was fine, I enjoyed the drive, although I did feel as if more traffic was around, I was wondering if this was due to the summer being over and the beach people were now out and about doing others things! As I arrived my son was waiting, and he very kindly parked my car for me, I could hear the children shouting me from the terrace, they were as excited as I was, I love to see them and hear all their lovely news, we had a lovely lunch and we just chatted and chatted, the time goes so quickly……we later took a stroll, to the town square , it was full of people and activities, children were playing, people were finishing Sunday lunch and others like us were enjoying watching the people go by and sipping hot tasty coffee, as the afternoon started to fade away, I started to make my way back home, it was nice to get home before it was dark, as we are still adjusting to the new light time ! But sad to leave part of my family behind, but I do get lots of kisses and hugs before I go, and get more kisses and waggy tails from my dogs on my return, they were looking forward to their daily meal… a little later than usual, but they forgive me and I am sure they understand…..And i am happy again to be with my four-legged family, so you see, love is an emotion of ups and downs , we are happy and sad,the main thing to realise is that, at times the simplest things bring us happiness, it has nothing to do with material things we acquire, we should always be grateful for the emotions we have in our life, it is all around us, we can appreciate love beauty and feelings at anytime,never forget this and never lose this in your life, it is the foundation of our balance in life.
