Love is life. And if you miss love, you miss life.” – Leo Buscaglia
This post is about everyone I love. There are so many people in my life I am so incredibly fortunate to have, who pray for me, keep me in their thoughts, and go out of their way to support me.
Today I’ve decided to write about my boyfriend, Gabe. The kind of love you share with a significant other is different than love for other people in your life. It’s a special feeling of putting someone else’s needs before your own. Gabe and I met at the ranch where I work and we’ve been together for two years. I was amazed with how kind and gentle he is with animals.
He is so understanding of my food allergies and restrictions and goes out of his way to make me feel safe and eat at the restaurants I can. He came into my life at the perfect time, supporting me through the food restrictive world and being a shoulder to feel sad on. Gabe is a pretty cool dude who has taught me and my Type A personality a lot about sitting back and taking life as it comes; not to get too far ahead and to enjoy each day. No matter what our future holds, I’ll always have a special place in my heart for the gifts he has given me and everything I have learned. I’m so happy and thankful to have such a special person in my life.
His best move? Listen up boys. Every morning I wake up to a text that says some form of “Good morning, babe.” It puts a smile on my face, and I think, yes, it is a good morning. I have people who love me and care about me. What a beautiful thing!
‘Cuz we sing,
we fall down,
and it’s fun.
What loving relationship are you thankful for in your life? Will you be doing anything special this Valentines Day? Girls night? Date night? Self-care?
