I Love You All the Way Through

I think I’ve mentioned before, I am not a big fan of card holidays.  Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day, Grandparent’s Day, the list is endless.

A card or expression of love, on a designated day is lovely I suppose, but gestures of kindness & love should not be saved for one day.

I have a lovely young friend whose Nana used to say, “I love you all the way through”.  The first time I heard this, I thought, what a beautiful way to tell someone you love them.

Loving someone all the way through is what defines love.

Loving the best parts of them as well as the parts that are a wee bit more challenging.

Loving them each & every day, reminding them of how much they mean to you.

I challenge you to “Love all the way through“.

Today, Valentine’s Day & every day!

We can all be nothing but richer for having done so!

Hugs,

L

A special thanks to Nana P for sharing her words of wisdom.

    Lynn I am loathe to the commercialism of all of those holidays and the expectation that presents buy love. Obviously don’t get me started. Oops too late. I think Nana P was very wise and so are you!

    • Lynn says:

      You & me both Sue! It is definitely a bugaboo for me too!

      It’s funny how sometimes words stay with you. Nana P’s definitely touched me as I am certain they did to so many she loved.

      Have a wonderful weekend my friend!

    Those are very loving words indeed … to know you are loved all the way through.

    Gilles tossed one at me many years ago that initially caught me up short. He said ‘I will always love you enough’. My first reaction was what-the-hell??
    His explanation left me without a comeback. He said that no matter how much love I wanted or needed, he would always have enough to give.
    Only a scientist could come up with something like that, but he was right. Enough is a perfect amount ❤

    • Lynn says:

      I am laughing as I read your comment
      Joanne as I would most likely have the same reaction! His explanation is beautiful, wouldn’t it be wonderful if everyone had enough love❤️

      • joannesisco says:

        When I think about it, it would be wonderful if everyone had enough. Our needs change from day to day. I don’t know about you, but some days, I need A LOT. To know there is always going to be enough is pretty amazing ❤

      • Lynn says:

        I agree Joanne. To know that we are loved helps to make those not so great days bearable😊

  3. I’ll try these words of wisdom on my wife, instead of a card and present.

  4. Nana P is very wise. We don’t do the card and present thing even for our anniversary (although we will try and go out for a meal together, just the two of us, as that’s enough of a treat these days). Expressions of love in the every day is more important – a cooked meal, a basket of washing hung out, a scrubbed toilet. 🙂

    • Lynn says:

      You are so right! My husband brings me a coffee every morning when I am getting ready for work. Such a simple gesture but one that is appreciated every single time I take that first sip❤️

  5. Jodi says:

    Oh I love that!!! “I love you all the way through!” I will be using that. Maybe when I’m a nana someday! 🙂 Thanks for sharing! ❤

  6. Dina says:

    This a beautiful way of expressing your deep love. ❤

  7. LB says:

    I love that your husband brings you a cup of coffee every morning. Sweetness!

  8. Ann Coleman says:

    What a lovely post! I like the idea of “loving all the way through!”

  9. The idea of a holiday built around a gift to show how much you love someone is absurd but a lot of people must buy into it going by the things displayed st every shop. Nice, thoughtful post❤️ ( just kidding about the heart! )

    • Lynn says:

      I share your sentiment. I feel the same when they suggest you buy diamonds for your mother on Mother’s Day, in order to show her how much you love her! Ridonkulous!

  10. restlessjo says:

    Happy Valentine’s Day, Lynn! 🙂 What a beautiful thought! I’m afraid my other half sometimes gets barely just enough love. 😦 I can be so grumpy!

  11. What a great challenge! I am going to take you up on that, starting this weekend! Nice work, Lynn. And Happy Valentine’s Day. 🙂

  12. susielindau says:

    This is so great! I my blogging friends all the way through.
    Thanks for bringing this to the party. Have fun hopping!
    Happy Valentine’s Day, Lynn!

  13. tedstrutz says:

    The cat in the hat sent me… I’ll have to try Nana’s advice. Nice post.

  14. Amy Shojai says:

    Oh, I love this! Found you via Susie Lindau’s blog and glad that I did!

  15. Maggie C says:

    Stopping by from Susie’s party. What I nice message to happen upon. And so appropriate for today.

  16. gaildstorey says:

    “All the way through” and “enough”–what fabulous expressions of unconditional love! And great to be introduced to your blog via Susie Lindau’s Wild Ride! Happy Valentine’s Day!

  17. The Hook says:

    Loved this post, Lynn!
    By the way, Susie Lindau sent me.

    Hi Lynn long time reader first time commenter…((I always wanted to say that!!)) I love valentines day! And I agree it needs to be something we work on all year round. Maybe valentines day 3 times a year since people seem need the reminder to be compassionate towards one another! What do you think?

    • Lynn says:

      Thanks so much for taking the time to comment today! I think it is important to express love every day, letting those around us know how much they mean to us. Compassion goes hand in hand, again on an ongoing basis. I so appreciate you reading!😊
