It got me thinking about all the birthdays we are celebrating right around now – FUN! FUN! We will continue to celebrate our Colleen tomorrow with a family dinner and then my BFF Jill’s birthday is Monday and a couple more right around now. (And one that I forgot about last night at JB for a sweet friend that I must make up!!)
Thinking about all of these birthdays and these wonderful friends and dear family members makes me smile. I am so fortunate to have these wonderful people in my life that I love so much and that love me back! Go figure!
One of my (many) weird quirks is the need to have the last thing I say be “Love Ya” when hanging up the phone with family or friends or saying good-bye after being together.
Marty tells me I’m a pessimist because I always think the worst. I really don’t think I am. I think I usually see the bright side in most everything. I always like someone until they give me reason not to – you don’t have to prove yourself to me. I automatically like you.
I fall in love very easy too! I love people! I’m not talking in the “I want to marry you” kind of way. Already got that covered!
I mean I genuinely love people. Love meeting new people. Love learning about their “story.” Love making people happy. I enjoy being with people – nope – not a loner here.
So back to the pessimist comment. I always end conversations with “Love ya” because I always think – If this is the last time I see this person – or the last time I talk to them – I want the last thing they remember I said to be that I love them.
Pessimistic? I don’t know… I do worry. About E-V-E-R-Y-T-H-I-N-G when it comes to my family and friends because I love them so much and don’t want anything to happen to them. I know it’s unproductive and I’m working on that, but in the meantime – I am just going to keep making sure that every time I hang up the phone or say goodbye – I say “Love Ya.”
…and oh how I love it when they say it back!
Yep – that’s me – life in between.
Cheers and Hugs,
PS And Happy Birthday Julie! Hope this was ok! Love ya!
