What Do You Love?

What makes your heart take off like a rocket or skip a beat? I was thinking about February, with the emphasis on hearts (National Heart Month), valentines, and love in all its many forms. I realized that what I love and who I love are very connected.

  • Adventure was a gift from my sister, who always created birthday surprises for me–I had to be willing to go anywhere without questions. I was never disappointed.
  • Fireworks still dazzle me. On the Fourth of July, my mother would drive out to the middle of a field outside the small town where we lived. It was very black out there in the middle of nowhere. We would sit on the car and wait for the sky to explode with sparkling fire. And it did.
  • I love to read. My grandpa was the one who read to me all the time. Not always from a story book, often from the newspaper or western novel. Even the backs of cereal boxes were pretty interesting reading.
  • I love to write. My grandmother wrote wonderful letters to everyone and insisted I could write, too. She edited the first newsletter I wrote when I was five and distributed it to all her friends. And here I am today, writing this newsletter…
  • Baseball has always been near and dear to my heart, and that is because my Uncle Bill played on our town’s softball team. The whole town went to the games. It was wonderful fun getting to see the kids from other towns—we would play our own games, too. The Saint Paul Saints have that little town feel, with fun as the major goal. I love that!

These are just a few of the people I love and what they brought to my life. So what and who do you love?
