Touched My Heart...

A few days ago, here on Life with Lynnie (LwL), I mentioned that last Friday, I went to my daughter P's, to celebrate her K's birthday.

Like I said, we enjoyed a delicious birthday dinner, together.  K enjoyed having his birthday, which was actually the next day, on Valentine's Day, celebrated. 

We all enjoyed watching him receive his birthday gifts.  Of course, we all enjoyed every bite of K's birthday cake, too! 

I'd like to say that while there, we also celebrated Valentine's Day.  Like normal, I brought sweet treats for my daughter and each of her family members (including my grandsons, of course!).

The next day, being our true Valentine's Day, I went to my daughter B's to visit with family members, there.

Like I did with P's family, I took sweet treats for each of my family members living there, too. 

While there, two (2) of my older grandsons, who both have recently had a baby to increase our family members, both said something to me that was rather shocking.  What they said nearly blew me away.

They both looked at me, hugged me.  Then, they let me know that they thought I needed to change my life.

I was told that I needed to start going out, in an effort to try and find someone to love me.

Being rather shocked hearing this, I laughed.  Then, they became rather serious.

They told me that I was beautiful.  That I shouldn't have any problem finding someone to be a mate to me.

Upon hearing that I laughed.  And, almost cried.

Me?  Beautiful?

I didn't think so.

But, they did.

They insisted that I truly need to do this, to change my life.  Apparently, they don't like the fact that I'm alone, with no one to love, and to love me, in return.

Upon hearing this, I at first thought they were teasing me.  But, after further discussion, I realized they weren't.

They love me. 

Much like we read, in John 13:34, "A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another."

Just as we read in today's verse, we need to love others, in order to fulfill what God commands of us.  Loving them, is something I do and feel, always.

I could tell that they were truly loving me. 

I must admit, that being loved by my grandsons who spoke to me like that, truly touched my heart.  It was all I could do to keep breathing.  And, not cry.

Silently, I prayed for both my grandsons, T and J.  Even now, I am praying for them.  And, am still feeling overwhelmed, knowing that I am truly loved by some of my family members. 

For love has been rarely given to me, in my life.

So for this, I praise God.  And, am truly thankful.


Until next time...
