I have been reminded of the power of love so many times this week. Love comes in so many forms. It's a hug for someone who is hurting. It's a call to let someone know you care. It's giving someone a chance. It's the unconditional bright spirit of my son. It's making the decision to help those in need. Love is so many things. One thing I have learned in this journey is the first step is to love yourself. And I am not talking about the new-age hippy dippy kind either. You have to love yourself first before you can really love others and give your love. I think through this evolution of myself in becoming a mother, divorce, finding who I am, Tommy, my weightloss journey, and so many other life experiences along the way I have learned what love is. I have taken that love and learned to love myself and how to give love in return.
Before Spicer was born I used to play music for him and sing to him. One of my favorite songs to sing and play for him was a Seu Jorge cover of Bowie's Starman. I know that sounds silly but is is so pretty in his native tounge. I still catch myself singing it to him sometimes. When I think of the love for my son I am often reminded of this little song I sang to show my son love before I even knew him. What do you do to show your love?
