I know people do special things for those they love, but some people do not seem to understand why, could that be that they have never loved. People tell me I am too soft with my youngest he is 22, but hey, I love him, he needs my help, and I can give it, what is the price of a tax disc compared to a life, no comparrison (spelling) I love to help others if I can and when I can I do, but I am not a soft touch, I just love, is there anything wrong with that?

Nothing wrong with that at all. It is the best feeling in the world to know that you are really loved - I try to tell or show the people dear to me as often as possible.



Barrie Report 7 Jul 2008 22:29

There is nothing wrong with doing that
If that makes you happy good for you



Barrie Report 7 Jul 2008 22:31

Love is a big word and can mean lots of things
You know what you did was right

I believe in showing love today, as who knows what tomorrow brings XX..


Barrie Report 7 Jul 2008 22:36

Always remember tomorrow never comes , So do what you need do to today
And if it brings a smile to others all the better

Barrie Report 7 Jul 2008 22:45

Love is to be together, share your joys and sorrows, understand each other, provide space to each other, but always be there for each others need

There is nothing wrong with love as in my opinion it is what life is all about...

If it was not for love..I would not be sitting here now chatting to you..

My two boys are the reason that I love and keep on living, not to forget my husband as well...

I could write a book about my life which would be sad, full of love, hope and shattered dreams.. and would make interesting reading.

At the end of the day what has helped me to help myself is love...

I could not live without giving or getting it...

P:S: Too deep a subject for this time of night...;)

nothing at all wrong with being loving and giving - what kind of a world would it be without loving and giving people in it. And I don't mean giving in the material sense, in giving of yourself to help others - I do all I can to help others in need - not setting myself up to be Mother Theresa here by the way!!! - but my family and friends are very dear to me and I would give my last to help any of them if I could.

Of course you have reminded me that I too have love
to give to others as well, which I do when I can.

Hope you are keeping well and the rain is not too depressing...

Lindy ;)))))))))))))

Lindy - I'm fine thanks but the weather here in Cardiff - and probably the rest of the UK is dismal - high winds and freezing lashing rain and that's the forecast for the rest of the week. And I suppose you're still too Hot!!!
