Thankful for Unconditional Love

23 October 2013

Hey lovelies! I'm so glad Sarah has asked me to be here today. My name is Samantha and I blog over at Life Style Love - you might recognize me from this post. I like to blog about love, clothes, recipes, diy projects, and life in general. You can read a little more about me here.
Almost a year ago my husband and I moved 4 hours away from our hometown and I feel like it has really shown me the things in life that I am most thankful for. I tend to be a very Type-A / OCD person and can get way too absorbed in work, my to-do list, and other things that I let stress me out. The love I share with my husband, along with my family and my friends, is what keeps me sane. It keeps me from literally crying during a stressful day at work or from spending an evening sitting on the couch and eating Ben & Jerry's out of the carton. {Oh wait, I did that once.} Those people help me remember the real important things. And out of all of those things, the one I am most thankful for is unconditional love. 
If you are married, you know unconditional love. If you have loving, forgiving, and supportive parents, you know unconditional love. If your friends are like your family and accept you for you, you know unconditional love. It's that feeling that no. matter. what. you will be loved.

I think unconditional love is one of the best gifts to receive and one of the best gifts you can give. It's sad to think that some people grow up without every knowing this kind of love or what it feel like. The way my parents loved me and our family is one of the best things they could have taught me. I look forward to the day that I can share this with my own kiddos. Being in a marriage where you know you will be loved no matter what is probably one of life's greatest experiences. Don't let yourself forget how the way you treat somebody or love somebody can be life-changing. It's easy to get caught up in the things we think are the important things; but try to remember the reason we're all here: to love and be loved.

What are you most thankful for? Are there certain people in your life that you go to when you need to be reminded of those things?
