Love Note

As you all know I LOVE LIFE! And I am very thankful for everything I have been blessed with. I was reading an article by Cori Kindred in the last issue of Artful Blogging and got inspired by her post last year for Valentine's Day. She listed all the things she loves in her post. I was planning to do the same, but as I started my list I realized that I will need several pages for my list. Since I don't think anyone would have the patience to read through all of them, I decided to use my creativity to write a poem about a few of the many moments that give me the most joy in my everyday life.

I Love These Moments

by Efrat Dalton

As the dew settles on the ground and the morning light has yet to rise
My white angel reaches for me while I'm asleep
Whispering in my ear, "I love you…I'll be seeing you tonight"
With a gentle hug and a kiss that warms my heart
He steps away from our bedside and departs on his journey to work
I love this moment.

The warmth and the soft velvet touch of my beloved cat
That nests in the curve of my legs with a soft hum waiting for my awakening
I rise I reach her with a soft pat and a kiss
I whisper in her ear, "I love you"
I love this moment.

As I look through the window to view the beauty of the day that the divine has blessed us with
I peek at my child and our elderly and beloved cat sleeping while sharing a pillow
I gently reach and kiss both of them and whisper, "I love you"
My heart is filled with joy seeing both little angels sleeping in peace
I love this moment.

While I'm getting ready for the day I hear the beautiful melody
That I will never be tired of listening to…"Mommy"
I realize than that my one big and beautiful miracle is awake
I reach to her with open arms and I hug her
I breathe in her sweet fragrance
I love this moment.

I reach for my coffee and phone and I dial a long number
As it rings a beautiful voice answers on the other end
A voice that I will cherish for the rest of my life
That always gives me comfort and a safe feeling, says
"Is that you my beautiful child? How much I love you"
This wonderful and loving angel on the other side of the world is my mommy.
How much I love her
I love this moment.

After I do all that is expected of me around the house
I stroll to my studio where my soul nests in comfort and peace
I seat and listen in the silence of the moment
I let my soul respond freely to the guidance of creativity
That’s when everything becomes clear and known to me
My purpose and mission for the day
I love this moment.

As the sun lowers in the sky I hear the rattling of the keys at my door
I know my angel has returned home from work safely
My heart beats twice
I look forward each day to his and my daughter's return home
My heart lights with joy every time that I look upon their faces and hear them say that they are happy to be home
I love this moment.

As the evening sets
I hear giggles and laughing from the next room
My husband and our daughter full of love
Oh how I love this sound of joy
I love this moment.

As I get ready for bed my daughter hops on my bed and start telling me her adventures of the day
I sit comfortably and all cozy in my bed and listen to her stories
It always makes me feel so blessed that she still feels enough at ease to do so even in her teen years.
I love this moment.

When we are all tucked in bed
My angel reaches over and
Nestles me in his arms for the night kiss and says
"Good night…I love you"
I love this moment.

The beauty of these treasured moments all comes from the pure and loving heart. They don't cost me anything and they give me joy even when life is not going so well. I can always count on these moments and they are just a few of many. How blessed am I.

I dedicated the above collage to my white angel, my wonderful and loving husband, Steve.

I would like to thank all of my family, friends and bloggers for being in my life and for giving me so much joy and inspiration every moment that I come in contact with you.

Have a loving Valentine's Day
