    On my #??th birthday, our children took me out to a very SPECIAL place, and gave me a nice gift! We never give gifts, as we all have more than need. I felt SO special!!

    I have always felt blessed with family and friends who show their love, from my grandparents who always made me feel so special, to aunts and uncles who cared for us during difficult family times, to a husband who shows on a daily basis that he is there for me and now to our grandchildren who beam when they see us, give us sweet hugs and kisses and who can’t wait to see us again. It is a wonderful life indeed!

    Lindsey L says:

    We moved about 18 months ago with very little notice because of a job change. The outpouring of love and help from friends and neighbors during those few weeks before our move was incredible and something that still brings me to tears when I think about it.

    About a month ago, my 23 year old daughter said she was looking at a certain picture of me and said she loved the picture because it really showed who I was. Then she said, you are a beautiful person. Deep love!

    Pat says:

    I participated in a church retreat, and each participant received letters from family and friends, telling them how much they were loved and appreciated. My husband asked the kids and other family members to write them and got them to the retreat coordinator. I knew nothing about it until they were given to me. I sat in the pew and read them and cried, feeling totally wrapped in love!

    Marlena M says:

    Oh my goodness, it’s hard to pick just one! I’ve been blessed by such kind friends and family. I’ll have to say, the most recent time was when some made an effort to come to a party that was scheduled on the day we lost my mother-in-law. It was a horrible, yet peaceful day and we wanted to celebrate my daughter’s graduation. We felt led to continue on with the celebration (even after notification),as my mother-in-law would have wanted. Attendees were there to hug us and support us on that difficult day.I’ll never forget their kindness and love!

    What a great question! When my son came home for the summer after his first year away at college, he made me feel loved when he sat next to me on the couch and asked if we could read a book together. The book (The Hobbit) was longer than the ones we used to read together but that was okay because it gave us many sessions of sitting side by side enjoying each other.

    For my 60th birthday my daughter surprised me and took me to Disneyland for a week. It was so much fun to spend the time together, just her and I.

    The first thought that popped into my head was the day that my husband proposed. He set up the whole proposal so sweetly and made me feel like I was the most special person in the world. 20 years later – he still does!

    Tammy Hanson says:

    Yesterday. It was my birthday and I heard from every one of my kids, all 4 siblings, my mom (who just had major surgery the day before and was recovering at my sister’s house) and 3 coworkers. And I wasn’t even at work. Even my husband remembered me with a card and flowers. Wow!! At this hectic time of year that is pretty amazing.

    Karen P says:

    I always felt so loved by my Dad. He always just beamed when I was with him and he always told people I was his baby. He would talk about his baby when not with me and when I actually got to meet the people in person they thought he had a baby and I was well into adulthood. We always had that special bond that I will never forget. He has been gone almost six years and I still feel his love to this day!

    Most days I feel very loved by my husband, as well as my family. Our wedding day was especially loved feel, having all the people we love share in our day was a really special moment.

  • 31
    Suzanne Fink says:

    When I was 30 years old I was saying good-bye to my mom & dad to start my 12 hour drive home with my 3 children. My dad enveloped me in his arms, hugged me tight, and tenderly told me, “You’re so precious to me.” It is a moment I will never forget & solidly reminded me that my God in heaven loves me even more than that. Not because of who I am, but simply be cause he loves me.

  • 32
    LindaM says:

    I guess I feel truly loved everyday. I have a wonderful family and support system, but if I have pick a day I would say my wedding day.

  • 33
    Rita says:

    Grateful everyday for family and friends and fur babies who show me what love looks like, sounds like, and feels like. It’s the little moments that mean the most: hugs, snuggles, a surprise or kind word…
    I especially appreciate loved ones who like me just the way I am.

  • 34
    F Bond says:

    I feel loved everyday which is special to me. My adult children call and talk to me daily- not to check on me but to laugh and talk about the littlest things. And my husband of, as he says “a lot of years” still blushes and stutters when he says I love you just like he said the first time.

  • 35
    StephClapper says:

    I truly felt loved the day I married my husband on Valentine’s day, 32 years ago. We are still crazy and in love after all these years.

    MarmiteMum says:

    In all the quiet ways that my family show they care; from the cup of tea brought to me by husband in the mornings on the weekend, the weekly chats with the girls who are away at university, to my thirteen year old daughter cooking the dinner last week when I had hurt myself.

  • 37

    Oddly enough it had nothing to do with friends or family… I was home alone with a very bad case of the flu. Just felt like death warmed over. Spent a lot of time lying shivering on the bathroom floor near the toilet.. just in case. My beautiful dog Bob, a lovely big black Labrador Retriever, laid there with me. Never left my side the whole time. Now… that is truly love. Cheers.

    My mother had Alzheimer’s and she lived with us until the rnd. My husband stood right with me for those 10 years and never complained.

    Oh my! When I retired from teaching I felt so loved by my students, former students, and their families. They surprised me with kind words, flowers, and a special performance of ‘Because I Knew You.’ Dear friends made a movie to surprise me, interviewing my students, former students, and students who have become teachers, too! What a heartwarming surprise! Last year, we were invited to two special weddings ~ both brides were former first grade students! Deciding to become a teacher as a young child was the easiest decision I have ever made. Deciding to retire from teaching was the hardest decision that I ever made. My life has been truly blessed by this amazing circle of love! β™‘

  • 42
    Vicki A says:

    I have felt truly loved when my kids were little and would give me a hug and a kiss. Now that my kids are grown, they still give me a hug and a kiss on the cheek to say hello and goodbye. When my grandkids say hello and goodbye, their hug and kiss are so very special too. Finally, I feel loved when my husband of almost 40 years gives me a kiss goodnight or goodbye when he is going out.

    Karen says:

    Oh gosh, that question makes me cry. I’d like to play along but I”m not sure how to answer that! My goodness.

    Every time my son and daughter want to cuddle on the couch and watch a movie.

  • 45
    Jeanette Kluesner says:

    I don’t have just one example. The love of my parents have supported and carried me through all my life. It was such an unconditional love. I’m 74 and came late in life to my parents. We were poor and my mom wanted me to get an education because neither parent was able to complete schooling. I did get an education and everyday my mom would remind me that no one could ever take that away from me. I never married they were both ill by the time I was a young woman. Everyday I left for school (I became a teacher) I got hugs, kisses, and always the question “now you have enough money and gas don’t you? I have felt their unfailing love all of my life and I’m so grateful and blessed. I knew no matter what happened or what I was worried about, if I could just get home it would all be ok.

  • 46
    Tammy W says:

    I had foot surgery in February and was laid up for quite awhile, it was a l-o-n-g recovery! My family really stepped up to help take care of me, do things around the house, and drive me to PT for over a month (it was my right foot, of course!) It was all greatly appreciated! Being the caretaker in the family, it was nice to be on the other side, for awhile.

  • 47
    Nancy Ward says:

    Felt especially blessed when my adult son ended our phone conversation with”I love you.”

    Rita Wright says:

    My wedding day. Marrying the man who adores me with my family surrounding us was amazing. It was a small wedding, not fancy at all, but put together by my dear family with lots of love.

  • 49
    Monika Davis says:

    Can I just say I feel loved pretty every day? Not just by my dear husband and my sweet mom, but my heavenly father! And of course my boys (but they don’t always show that love). If I had to pick one day though, I’d pick my wedding day. πŸ™‚ My mom flew across the ocean to be here with me on my special day. She walked me down the isle to give me away to my dearly beloved.

    Cindy O says:

    Just one example … When my husband fills up my gas tank and checks the oil and tires for me. It’s a little thing but always brings a smile.

    When I was newly divorced and struggling financially, my mother sent me money to get the brakes fixed on my car so I would be safe.

  • 52
    Hannah says:

    I always felt truly loved by my husband. He was my one true thing and the absolute best thing that ever happened to me. My husband passed unexpectedly and suddenly June 23, 2012. And while we enjoyed 21 wonderful years together….my heart breaks each day without him.

  • 53
    Carolyn says:

    There have been many occasions that I have been shown love by the actions and prayers of others. But in the quietest most desperate most needy moments of my life, when there was no one but God nearby , or who knew my circumstance, He made known His love for me in the depths of my soul and mind and that is unshakeable even when the worlds forms of hatred are thrown in my direction.

  • 54
    Annie says:

    it’s the little things that my husband of 38 years does everyday that lets me know that what we have is still very special.

  • 55
    Carmela Hubler says:

    There are many memories of feeling loved by God, family and friends but the first one that came to my mind was a time during my first marriage. My first husband has since died from complications of diabetes. He was blind from diabetes and had other complications as well. I became very ill with the flu. One of the worst cases I have ever had. My husband made a trip to the store which was across a busy street, unassisted to get me some soup and medication. He often did things like that for me and I truly felt loved. He continually showed me what unconditional left felt like and he will always be remembered for his sacrificial love.

    Annie Dill says:

    My younger sister Patty came to my home to bless me for two days during my weeks of radiation. When I arrived home on a snowy dark December evening from the treatment, she was in the kitchen cooking dinner for my family. Coming home to that, filled my heart.

    LindaCC says:

    I’ll never forget the day I first saw my parents after returning from their winter in the south and my dad gave me the biggest hug ever! I felt so loved….little did I know it would be my last one from him.

  • 59
    Chris Cross says:

    After I found out my Dad had Stage IV Lung Cancer in the fall of 2004, I made him a scrapbook telling him how much I love him. He sent me flowers at work the next day with a note telling me that he already knew.

    I would have to say it is every day. My husband is the most supportive, encouraging, gentle yet strong, faithful person I have ever met and I have the inestimable privilege to walk through life with him. Every day I feel truly loved.

  • 62
    Melissa S. says:

    I feel loved everyday. From the outpouring of God’s tender mercies and blessings each day, to the hugs and snuggles from my teenage sons, to my husbands patient love each day, how can I not know I am completely loved. It’s abundantly more than I could ever deserve or imagine.

  • 63
    Meg Crawford says:

    My husband makes my coffee every morning. I like that when I come in my morning walk all I have to do is grab my beverage travel mug and it has my coffee and flavored creamer already in it. It’s the little things! πŸ™‚

    My sweet boy (hubs) makes me feel loved every single day…never leaves without a hug and a kiss, calls me at least twice a day while out in the world doing his thing. He embraced my children as his own and adores our grand daughter as much as I do! He is an amazing man and I am a very lucky girl! Blessed, doesn’t even cover it!

  • 68
    Nancy Penir says:

    There’s just something about a mother’s unconditional love that can’t be topped. My mom and I are both morning people and used to meet around the breakfast table each early morning, before the rest of the family woke. But one catastrophe caused us to stay up late, just comforting each other. We ate grilled cheese, and drank hot chocolate, just we two, all through the night. I’ll never forget the bond of mother and daughter. She is 91 now, frail and almost unable to walk, but our talks continue. A lifetime of love!

  • 69
    Char says:

    I’ll never forget this moment as long as I know my mom had passed away and we were at the funeral and I was crying and my two-year-old granddaughter was sitting a few seats down from me z, she came over to me and held on to me , and she just gave me a big hugs and kisses

    I feel loved every morning when my guy brings me coffee in bed because he knows how much of a morning person I am NOT! It’s the little things he does that shows me how much he loves me.

  • 72
    Diana K says:

    It’s every moment with my incredible husband. I just know he adores me and isn’t even bored after all these years! But I must say it’s also pretty special when your 10 year old grandson asks for a lipstick tattoo on the cheek before every single ballgame. πŸ™‚

    Marisa says:

    When my daughter made us a fabulous photo album for Christmas – amazing memories of our kids growing up and many wonderful family times together. We all had a great time reflecting back through all the photos. She worked really hard taking digital pictures of old photos and organized them beautifully in the book.

  • 76
    Meg says:

    I have been in treatment for metastatic breast cancer since 2013. Up until now, I have tolerated the side effects of treatment fairly well. A few weeks ago I began an oral chemo regimen that has been very difficult, to say the least. Out of the blue, for two nights in a row, a couple of my dearest friends showed up with armloads of ready-made dinners for my family to heat and serve or freeze for later. I was completely surprised and felt so pampered and loved. You have no idea how amazing that feels, and how helpful it is to have one less thing to worry about each day.

  • 77
    Keysha Sain says:

    I have always felt loved but there was one day recently when I sat and thought about it and said to myself “my hubby really loves me”. One day out of the blue he sent flowers to my job and included a cute little funny note with the flowers…when I got home that day he had cleaned the whole house and he had cooked dinner! My husband is not the romantic type so this really stood out! Sometimes its just the small little things that a person can do that truly shows that they love you and are thinking about you.

    Michele Lourenco says:

    Everytime my children give me a hug. It is always the best moment in my day.

    Debbie Kaste says:

    I felt truly loved when I covered my mom with a blanket and tucked her in for a nap. She has had so many medical problems in the past three years and while I was doing it, she said to me, “I don’t know what I would do without you.” She is such a loving and kind person, I could not think of not caring for her. SHE makes me feel loved every day and we are so blessed to have her with us.

    Kristina says:

    There was a time shortly after my brother died in a car accident while he was living with me. I was having a bad day and was thinking about him. I started crying because I felt bad. I didn’t know if I had done enough to show him how much I really loved him. I told him I was sorry. Immediately I felt his arms around me giving me a hug and I felt so much love, it was the most incredible experience I’ve ever had. Undeniable.
    Great release, ladies! I hope you all have a Merry Christmas!

    Gia LaForge says:

    The day I graduated from college my whole family–in laws and family of origin–surprised me at my house at 8:00 AM with a pair of boots I had always had my eye on…and were ready to escort me to graduation followed by a party after. I loved that they went out of their way to celebrate my accomplishment!

    Ooh that’s hard to answer with just one thing because I feel loved and blessed with a very loving husband and family… I guess I would have to say one of the best days I felt surrounded with love was my wedding day. I felt truly cherished and surrounded by love by my entire family and my soon to be husband! It was a day I shall never forget.

    Maureen P says:

    I’m not sure if I can narrow it down to one specific moment…but my husband shows me he truly loves me in little ways all the time. For example, in the winter, he puts my winter tires on my car so I don’t have to wait at the tire place for hours :). It’s a little thing that means a great deal to me.

  • 93
    Kathy D says:

    My first thought after reading that question was, “the day offspring #1 was born”. Not that I didn’t feel loved after the other offspring, but when other offspring come along you are multitasking and perhaps don’t take the time to reflect (I obviously didn’t!).

    Kyle E. says:

    This past August, my brother and his family surprised me with a 65th birthday celebration. They all decided that since I make such beautiful cards for them, they were each going to make me a handmade card. They also decided that their cards should be as ugly as possible! Each card was worse than the one before, but it touched my heart that each person had put a significant amount of effort in their card.

    Jessica Monte says:

    When I was a child my biological father didn’t want us. When my mom got remarried. He did and adopted me and my sister. That was ture love. And have been very blessed that our Dad wanted us for his own. And he never had biological childern of his own. but we never thought of him other than our Daddy.

    I think back to my youth – when every day that I visited my grandma was a day that I felt truly loved. She was always the perfect example of love! Thanks so much for a lovely week of inspiration.

    Carol Blaisdell says:

    I am blessed beyond measure to have found the love of my life who shows and tells me every day that he cherishes me. His unconditional love for me leaves me weak in the knees, but I know that he was sent to me from my Heavenly Father. We have celebrated 34 years of marriage.

    Karen B says:

    My husband, who is not a party person, pulled off a surprise birthday party for me – not on a significant birthday – just one of those in betweeen ones. That he would even think of it, much less do it, was like a huge hug.

    Terri says:

    I would say it was when I walked into the private room in a restaurant the day before my wedding. My entire extended family was there and I burst into tears when I thought about the fact that this HUGE banquet table was filled with relatives who had traveled from out of state for me and my soon to be husband. I felt overwhelmed with love.

    Donna Gourley says:

    The question this month really made me sit back and think for a bit…there are lots of “everyday” expressions of love, but those deep, heartfelt feelings of being truly loved (in that particular moment) are a little more rare I think. With that said, the one moment that comes to mind for me is the Sunday we had to tell our church family about our son’s cancer diagnosis (he was 11 at the time). We felt so supported, embraced, and loved by everyone in that moment and it touched me deeply. (and my son is now 33 years old!)

    Kay says:

    I am fortunate to feel love on a regular basis, but this particular time came to my mind when I read the question. I had a knee replacement surgery in February and before leaving the hospital a neighbor called me and said she left dinner on my front porch and a crafty kit for me to do while recuperating. That touched me so much that she would go out of her way to do all of that for me out of the goodness of her heart. She is a super busy lady too,. It touched my heart and made me feel loved.

  • 115
    Janet S says:

    I have to say that I have never felt as loved by my husband as I have this year. I have had surgery after surgery and he has taken care of me without one complaint. This last one was for thyroid cancer. I just went through the radioactive iodine treatment this past week. We have had to stay six feet away from each other at all times. He has done all the cooking and cleaning and anything else that needed to be done, including some Christmas shopping! He is truly the love of my life and, although he makes me feel loved everyday, this year has truly shown how deep that love is, even after nearly 22 years.

    When I was pregnant with my only child and almost lost the baby several times. All the prayers and support we received were amazing!

Everyday when I see my loving dad. I have been blessed beyond belief with such dear family and friends! Couldn’t imagine a better life!!

    Lori Smart says:

    Your new releases are beautiful! Exactly one year ago, I was in ICU surrounded by friends and family, reminding me how much they all care. The support and love, and the way my husband and daughter cared for me through the last year of surgeries and chemo, and basically took over every single responsibility so that all I had to do was heal is just something I will always appreciate more that I could ever put into words!! ?

  • 121
    Vicki says:

    OMGosh – there have been so many times that it’s hard to choose just one! I think my favorite time of feeling absolutely loved was when I found and fell in love with my furry soulmate, Chelsea. I rescued her from the pound when she was a 12-week old puppy and just a day away from being euthanized because the shelter needed more space and no one had been interested in adopting her because she was terrified of the other dogs. As soon as I took her in my arms (all 2 pounds of her), she looked at me with absolute, total adoration, love and trust and I knew she was meant to be mine. She got over her fear of other dogs and ruled the the two male dogs we rescued after her. She lived to ripe old age of 15, and I miss her every single day.

    Angie C. S. says:

    I was born with a few medical issues, one serious. My dad was in the Navy so we went to Military Hospitals. My mom took care of me through thick and thin driving to the doctors until I outgrew most of them at age 12. We would often stop and eat in a cafeteria and she would get me an inexpensive toy. I treasure the closeness we had then. Although she passed away at a young age, she left me with those wonderful loving memories. As for my health issues….all gone. And I’m a grandmother now. ;=)

    As so many before me have stated, it’s hard to mention one time I have felt loved. My parents are gone now, but I still feel their love through the memories of a happy childhood. My husband, children and grandchildren continually show their love in many ways. I am so fortunate to have a great family.

    Michelle Salazar says:

    Ever time I had a Chemo and radiation appointment (yes together) my darling husband went to everyone with me sat with me when he could stayed outside the bathroom when I was to sick to go on I and was always there when radiation got hard. Imagine laying on a table with your head bolted down unable to move just after you had chemo. I knew from the beginning that he was the one he is my blessing from god.

His kindness and care is what helped me make it through the worst of this week.

    Sue in Grapevine says:

    Our daughter got married in June & I wanted the house to look nice for all the relatives who would be coming to stay, but I am NOT neat. My husband did most of the work to clear away my clutter & help me get rid of things. He never expressed any negative comments about all this & helped me where I had trouble helping myself.
    We had the 9 bridesmaids stay the night before the wedding, 3 hair & make-up ladies come & set up shop in my bathroom, hosted a lunch the day after the wedding, & had 7 relatives spend the night after that — in a house I did not feel ashamed of, thanks to his help!
    The love just keeps getting stronger after 35 years!

    Susan G says:

    First, I must say that I am loved and blessed quite often, but just this year I had the most amazing wonderful time, feeling the love my family has for me. My four children are scattered around the country. I have seen them all, of course, periodically, but it had been ten years since I saw them all together. This year I turned 70 (goodness!). They flew me out to Seattle, where my sister’s entire family lives. My two children close-by also arranged to be there. I spent time in each of my children’s homes, and my sister’s also. But mainly, we got together constantly, had fun together, played games, went sight seeing, laughed and then they had a party for me. It was truly amazing. The best two weeks of feeling loved and cherished.

    I’ve never felt more love than when my daughter gave birth to a little girl 20 years ago. She and I and the baby sat together on the hospital room couch, me with my arms around my daughter, and my daughter holding her new baby, my first grandchild. We sat in silence and wonder of the event and feelings being shared. It was a deep exchange of love and I will never forget the actual physical feelings I had as did my daughter when we think back on this magical, sacred moment.

    Great question! Love skimming through some of these as I can feel the love. A day doesn’t go by that my DH and I don’t share our love in one way or another, yet it never goes unnoticed. The real proof is when I’ve had the flu, and he’s right there caring for me even when in the middle of the night. When people tell me I’m a good hugger (at church and everywhere), I definitely feel the love right back.

    The one time I truly felt loved….not something I would have thought but it is the first memory that popped into my head. My boyfriend at the time (now hubby) had dropped me off for surgery at the hospital and left to go to work. I woke from surgery with him sitting right beside me, he had left work early for the day to be by my side. I truly felt very loved. It was tough because I also felt truly loved each time I looked into my newly born child’s eyes! I am definitely blessed!

    wow! That is a really hard question that makes you think… I think I truly felt loved after the birth of our first child. I was a complete mess, Aiden had unexpectedly been rushed to the NICU, I had just gone through 26 hours of hard labor, and I was literally a mess. Not once did my husband make me feel like I had even the slightest hair out of place, instead he kept showering me with kisses and he was a rock to lean on when I couldn’t do anything but cry. He still does that to this day πŸ™‚

    I have a great family and always feel loved. But last Christmas was extra special. I’ve had MS most of my adult life which I manage, but I’ll admit it was a real kick in the gut when I was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. I told my girls I didn’t want any gifts, i just wanted time with them. Well they gave me both gifts of love and time. They took me out one day and we all got pedicures. Then we went to a lovely tea room and had afternoon tea in front of a beautifully decorated fireplace. We had a wonderful time and I if I didn’t think I could love my girls more before that day, they proved me wrong yet again!
    My lymphoma is currently in remission, I have a brand new, gorgeous granddaughter and I hope everyone has a blessed Christmas, no matter how you celebrate. πŸ™‚

Since I enjoyed puttering with plants on the deck and in the house, she got me a sweet watering can charm to wear on the necklace. I thought that was extra special.

    When visiting my daughter at college for the first time. Her smile was so wide when she saw me and she kissed and hugged me and didn’t let go for quite a long time. I knew in that moment she missed and loved me just as much as I missed and loved her.

    Patt H. says:

    i feel loved & special when my wonderful hubby walks by & gives me a little kiss on the back of the neck, usually when I least expect it. I couldn’t ask for a better, more awesome hubby. He treats me like a queen every day!

    Michele W says:

    I feel loved every day but if I have to pick a special time it would be after I was in a accident and my mom came down to stay with me – to look after me. She also made food and put it in the freezer so I would have plenty to eat with very little effort once she went back home.

    So many times to choose from! Today I woke to find a text from my adult son who is pursuing an MBA while working full time, he had sent a photo of his transcript showing a GPA of 4.11—it is not his GPA that made me feel so happy, but the fact that at almost 30 he still wanted to share the joy with me! I think I am truly blessed!

    Greta H says:

    I had very loving parents, so here’s just one example. I was 800 miles from home at college with no extra money. My parents were in full-time Christian work & barely made ends meet. Yet, about once a week or so I’d get a note from my dad with our favorite cartoon (Marmaduke) & a few dollars. Didn’t always see eye to eye with my folks, but always knew I was loved. Miss them so much.

    I feel love everyday from my family but the most particular time that I can recall is when my son was very young and I would go in his room to get him out of his crib and those little arms would wrap around my neck and his smile so happy and my heart knew that we had a forever bond.

    I am over forty years old, and this past summer, I had to have a tonsillectomy … NO FUN! Since I am also single, I was a little concerned who would take care of me. The answer? My mother. A former nurse, she did the best job of making miserable me feel comforted and loved. She stayed at my home, she monitored my medications – even in the middle of the night! – and she provided endless encouragement. I guess that no matter how old we are, we still always need our moms! Thanks be to God that she is still in my life and for her sweet love.

    The day I went to see my Aunt Joey in the hospital. She was not lucid and didn’t know anyone or anything. She was combative to the nurses and wouldn’t communicate with anyone. I went into her room and sat at her bed. I stroked her arm and had her focus on my eyes. She wide eyed recognized me and nearly leapt into my arms, crying my name. She’s always had a special love for me. She has since passed and I think she loved me more than anyone else in this world.

    Last year I turned 50, and my mother gifted me with 50 things that reminded her of me at some point in those 50 years. Some things were items from my childhood that she’d been saving for me, most were little things that she found here and there that she knew I would enjoy. More than the collection of things, I love that my mother took the time to carefully select each item just for me.

    My husband knows I love hand made cards,so for my birthday he made me a card. He folded a piece of copy paper in half and used a variety of my stamps to randomly decorate the card. I loved all the imperfections and ink spots!I know it was made with so much thought and effort and he did what he knew to do while speaking my language of home made cards. I felt incredibly loved and treasured.

    Jill says:

    I can say that I felt genuinely loved when the time came to tell our friends that I had to have open heart surgery at age 38. We had recently moved 1000 miles up the east coast but that didn’t stop the outpouring of support and offers of assistance. Navy family is the best kind of family!

    My husband told me every day for over 32 years that he loved me, and showed it in many ways. He was so smart, full of integrity, kind, compassionate, caring, and oh so funny – the joy and love of my life. He slipped away to Heaven Oct. 26th, 2016…the last days of being his care giver and keeping him at home as he wished were very special to me. I miss him so much and treasure the sweet memories of this incredible man. I KNOW I will be with him again when God calls me home to Heaven!

    One Christmas my son had to work on Christmas Eve and I asked if he would come to Christmas Eve services but he didn’t think he’d make it. I kept watching for him through the entire service and then at the end we stood up to sing Silent Night while we raised our lit candles and quietly he slid in next to me smelling of Wendy’s hamburger grease and out of breath but he’d made it to sing with me and wish Jesus happy birthday! Of course I could barely sing for the tears of joy streaming down but what a loving gesture he gave me.

I still tear up just thinking about that outpouring of love. πŸ™‚

    Sarah A says:

    Tough to narrow it down to just one, but the one that stands out to me is when I was moving into my now-husband’s house, a week or so before our wedding, and he realized we’d need extra storage, so he had California Closets come in and do our master bedroom closet and the pantry. I said I felt bad for taking so much room and he said that I fill in all the empty spaces in his life. True story.

    No question that my sweet husband makes me feel loved every single day. It’s not grand gestures or flowers or gifts — it’s the little things that waking me up every morning with a cup of coffee for me and a bite of breakfast. And helping me look for my keys or sunglasses or phone that I seem to misplace every day and never a complaint. I love his kind spirit and gentle manner. And his thoughtfulness never gets old (even as we seem too).

    What a great question! And how fun to read thru some of the comments. Just lovely.

    I had a day last month that I truly was so blessed and loved it brought me to tears. All three of my children (ages: 12, 11 and 8) got baptized by my husband. It was just so precious. And not only that, but one of my first brothers in the Lord who was so encouraging in my early days and years of my relationship with Jesus came with his wife and surprised us at church that morning just to be there with us. God is so good! And He loves us so amazingly much! πŸ˜‰

    I honestly can’t think of one big moment when I felt that kind of love – just a few little moments. The first that comes to mind is one time during church…my daughter was around 2, and it was a time during the mass that we had to kneel. I put her in front of me on top of the pew and held her, so she could be eye level with other people. She just started kissing me and hugging on me…it was the cutest thing!! My mother-in-law was right next to us, and she told me, “Aly [my daughter] really loves her mama!” Now that my daughter is a moody 14, I have to remember these kind of moments! <3

    The one time that stands out for me over all the others, is when my son wrote me a letter on Mother’s Day and told me that he truly understood now that he was a parent, how much I loved him and thanked me for all the things I did for him growing up. That letter meant more to me than he will ever know. I never felt more truly loved than I did on that Mother’s Day.

    Before we got married, my now husband, knowing how much I love bunnies, sneaked into my house and placed 144 small stuffed bunnies (it was around Easter) all over the living room, hallway and stairs floor.

    I lost my Dad 3 yrs ago this month. It was the hardest thing I ever had to get through in my life. But in the mist of all the agony, the thought that kept running thru my mind was how much I know in deepest part of my soul I knew he loved me with his whole heart. Such a Daddy’s girl I was while growing up. And even tho I’m much older now, and the good Lord gave me many great years with him, I still feel that love. Since then, time is more precious with my Mom, Husband, and Son….and every hug, phone call, and text let’s me know that I am truly loved by all of them….and I love them with every bit of my being. I hope you and yours have a very Merry & Blessed Christmas. πŸ™‚

  • 353

    I felt loved everyday in my life (almost, LOL), but the one time that remembered so well is when my DH was ill and before he went into surgery room, he reminded me again where to find all the things I need when he is not around, I usually avoid this topic because I don’t want to think about sad things, but his care and concern and worried about if I can take care of myself if he is gone makes me sad and at the same time felt so loved. Of course he came out fine and I don’t really need to know how to take care of things in the house because he still does, LOL!

Ultimately though, the greatest expression of love to me is found in the saving grace of Jesus Christ – John 3:16!

    I have really felt loved while my parents, who should be enjoying their retirement, have instead been taking care of me due to a major back injury that leaves me in bed most of the time. They have to buy food at the grocery store, fix it, deliver it to my bed, do my laundry, help me get dressed, drive me to doctor’s appointments, pick up my medicines, and on and on because I can no longer do those things for myself anymore. They do it without any concern for themselves. I have never seen a better example or felt more loved because of what they do for me now.

    Warning– This one is a bit long and personal…read at your own discretion! Hehe.

    So,I am chronically ill with multiple diseases including a very rare immune deficiency disease and a rare mutation of Cystic Fibrosis. At the mere age of 14 I was already on oxygen and undergoing numerous surgeries/treatments. I met my husband when I was 24 and by that time my health (as it’s a progressive disease) had deteriorated even more. Then, by some miracle I became pregnant, though doctors had always told me I’d never be able to have children. The pregnancy was very high-risk and our son had to be delivered nearly 2 1/2 months early and I nearly lost my life in 4 different ways. After a 2 month long stay in the hospital (ICU) I finally went home but had to have (and still require) ’round the clock care. I couldn’t walk and even needed to be lifted to go to the restroom as well as help getting dressed, brushing my teeth, bathing, etc,. I was completely and utterly dependent upon my better half. Now, at that point we were not married yet and honestly any man in his right mind would (should!) have run for his life. But instead, on the day our miracle son was born, he proposed to me and has spent the last 7 years caring for both me and our son. That type of unconditional, selfless love is one that I feel every day and not just a single moment, for it is every single day that he administers my 68 different meds, cooks, cleans, cares for our son…every day that he does EVERYTHING! And so, I am one of the luckiest women in the world to have a man so willing to sacrifice so much and devote his life to ensure I have mine.

    The first time that talking to my father about everyday things, I might had been around seven or eight years, and he asked me what was my most heartfelt desire, and having the naivetΓ© of a child I said reaching to the skies to touch a star and my dearest father said without skipping a beat, I will work very hard from this day on to build a ladder high enough so that you may be able to reach the sky, there’s nothing that I would not do for you, I love you so much!
    Next morning I had forgotten all about it, but the years passed and in my adolescence I remembered that and felt so much love from him, needless to say that it was then that I realized that what I had asked him was impossible, nevertheless until he died I used to tease him about it and he would reply “I am still working on it,that is how much I love you” I miss him so much!
    My Mother’s turn now,she used to sew all my clothing for me and I had six or seven months to graduate from High School and my mother was making me the Senior Prom dress, she pricked herself with a needle and had an operation because it got infected, after waking up from the anesthesia,she looked up at me and told me how sorry she was because she feared she would not finish the dress, well, not only she finished it on time, it was the most beautiful dress of the prom,and there were parents who could afford designer dresses that ranged in price from $2,000.00 to $5,000.00 She is still with me at the young age of 97 and although she does not sew anymore, I know that if I would ask her she will make me anything that I want!

    To respond to the prompt, I’m going to exclude the obvious…parents, grandparents, children and my spouse. Instead, I’d like to speak to a group of people who became my family when I moved from my hometown and focused on my journey into adulthood. I’m referring to my church family in a little West Texas town who: modeled how to be giving and a Christian, encouraged me when I was low, taught me how to be a parent, and supported me to achieve my dreams. This surrogate family have all moved on, and my family and I have moved back to my hometown. But I know that while I am loved here…I’ll never be loved like I was in my West Texas hometown.

    Many times come to mind but my favorite was a Valentines day many years ago. I was pampered all day long and ended the day with a very romantic meal. He is the best.

    Probably mostly from the sweet doggie who can’t wait to snuggle on the couch when I get home. Family shows there love in different ways, but a pet’s love is so unconditional!

    Margaret B. says:

    I have been married for 43 years and my husband tells me he loves me everyday. There is one very special time that he made me feel so very loved and cherished was when he got up in front of our church one Sunday morning and shared how much I meant to him. It was a very special time for us and brings me warmth and happiness every time I remember it.

    Emily M. says:

    My husband does a good job of making me feel loved on a daily basis. He takes such good care of us, working so hard to make sure we have a comfortable home and nice vehicles (and, ahem, stamps….) and very rarely does he complain. He always makes me feel like I’m the only woman in the world. It’s such a wonderful feeling to feel truly loved.

    This is hard because there are so many times! One of many times was when I turned 50 and the kids surprised me with a family photo taken at the beach. I had no idea and it was no easy task to get everyone together! I couldn’t stop crying…….family is everything to me and they knew !

    Barbara Martin says:

    I am truly blessed to feel love from so many different people. One moment that still amazes me is the love I felt from my husband’s parents when they supported me when his grandparents did not accept me (because of our difference in religion). We have now been married for 32 years!

    Bonnie says:

    I’m an emotional person who feels things very deeply. I have wept over the death of children that I’ve never met as if they were my own. I found out last night that my husband has been ripping out and throwing away pages of the newspaper that contain stories that would break my heart. He’s been doing that for months, possibly years, because he loves me.

    My 7th Christmas was memorable due to the unexpected carnage in the living room. One of my sisters went into the living room to get onto my new bike. It was too big for her and fell over, hitting the tree and knocking it to the floor. And previously that morning my brother swung my sister’s new drum major baton and one end flew off and broke a window. Amazingly we still had Christmas every year after that.
