Today I Love 2015

I love 2015

Today I love 2015, every positive thing that happened, and many of the things that seemed negative at first blush. I love that "Today I Love" became a blog this year. I love that it has reached many people in many countries because of that exposure. I love all the friends I've made through this blog and through the positive changes it has had on my life, and...

Today I Love Finishing A Job

World in black and white

Today I love finishing a job which is very likely to happen today. I love that we're done the part that tore my right hand up because ... it tore my right hand up.

Today I Love That It Is December 25th

Good Christmas Morning to you

Today I love that it is December 25th again and as I was raised by a Christian family, this day holds more pleasant memories for me than any other. I love being reminded of traditions and incidents and gifts that really made the grade back when I was a child. I especially love remembering that the Christmas stockings my brother and I hung up...

Today I Love Christmas Eve Day

Christmas Eve day dawns

Today I love Christmas Eve day and all the memories that this day and night bring back to me. I love remembering how this one day of the year would drag on seemingly forever, like it had no intention of ever passing on into evening. I love thinking back on dark winter nights when there was a quiet kind of excitement in my home, and while it simmered...
