I awoke today feeling pretty crappy. I had been having nightmares about having nightmares. I am particularly talented that way. My mood was pretty dark, as are the skies here. It is raining. So I made myself some tea and fruit loaf toast and turned on the computer.
Waiting for me I found a message from a friend, one of my oldest friends actually. I also found alot to amuse me on twitter including a reply to something I’d said and a fab quote from the magnificent Katharine Hepburn
“Love has nothing to do with what you are expecting to get — only what you are expecting to give — which is everything. What you will receive in return varies. But it really has no connection with what you give. You give because you love and cannot help giving. ”
Unlike Forrest Gump I’m not sure I know what love is. I know what it is to me, I just get confused about what it means to others. To me, it is as Ms. Hepburn says. What I am learning is to be loving towards myself as well.
Today though I am feeling the love from my wider world via the World Wide Web. I am really glad you are out there! Now that my mood is a little calmer I can reflect on my blessings of which there are many. My thoughts are with some friends who are having an embryo transfer today. Also with the lovely Katyboo http://katyboo1.wordpress.com/ who has some tough things going on. My beautiful children, my wonderful friends, my family of choice, music, chocolate, Monty Python- and I think to myself what a wonderful world!
