Love is really free + freebie

Have you ever had problems with your family? It happened to me a couple of years ago, I did not feel loved at all, I had the impression to be always the second choice.... not the preferred child, not the right granddaughter, not the perfect friend.... sometimes I really had the sensation to be invisible. I felt I could have disappeared and no one would have ever notice that. Of course I had my DH and DS, but apart from them I felt the void. It was a really hard time but now it is over. I learned a lot in the meanwhile, first of all to accept the others even parents and grandparents for what they are and the second lesson is not to have expectations. I have hope and faith but I do not expect anything in my life, I do not take anything for granted, not even love. Love appreciation, consideration are treasures and if they are given out freely , not as an obligation, they are the best gifts of all. Everyday is filled with joy for the things I receive and the feelings I perceive. Joy is inside, it's an attitude of  my soul, it's in every second of my life, even in the darkest hours I feel the joy as I know pain and or sorrow will not last forever, they will soon disappear and be replaced by love and light. Another lesson I learned is that sometimes love comes from people you do not know so well, without a reason. It is simply there. 

This is what happened to me and my family. We met a wonderful woman, she has a wonderful soul and even if we do not even speak the same language, my DH my DS and me we felt a more higher love connection with this lovely grandma ( and we are requited), and this is how my son call her, she's the Rumanian's nonna (grandma). She's wonderful.

Not having posted anything for quite a long time I decided to reward my readers ( if there is someone reading my rigmarole out there). Christmas is just 30 days away, so I think you can make good use of this little train freebie. Enjoy it and take a little time to leave a couple of words. I do love reading comments.

May love be always with you.
