I was born to laugh
I learned to laugh through my tears
I was born to love
I'm gonna learn to love without fear -- Over the Rhine

I think I love too much. I have an overwhelming love for my family. I love every animal that has ever existed. I love children. I love nature. I love moonlight. I love stars. I love maple trees, caterpillars, salamanders. I love the feel of my bare feet in the grass. I love August. I love rocking chairs. I love good books, the smell of libraries. I love old churches. I love Jesus. I love the ocean. I love foreign languages. I love hummingbirds, cardinals, herons. I love San Diego. I love the smell of honeysuckle. I love magnolia trees, fat white flowers. I love the lake, the crab-apples, the Kentucky meadows. I love the sound of a violin, the taste of a fresh peach. I love being in love.

I have spent my entire life loving everything and everyone but myself.

My heart is big. There is room to love me too.

  2. I have yet to figure out if "too much love" exists. You deserve love, especially from you :)
