i love people...

I have a lot of thoughts swarming around in my head at the moment, but I will just share the main one for now. This past week I have been thinking about the people in my life alot. Well, actually I was inspired by a new friend who was telling me how he enjoyed people. And I can attest to you that this friend unconciously spends his days making those who cross his path happier and more confident. Some of the people I know, I have been friends with for twenty years, others...a couple of weeks. I have come to realize that I just genuinly love being around, meeting, entertaining, conversing with, and even watching people. When I lived in New York, often times while taking a Subway, I would watch the people that stepped on and off and wonder what thier lives were like. I love people because they are shy. I love people because they radiate joy and sorrow and excitement. I love people because they express emotions in general. I love my friend Shelly because she has an office voice and never fails to make someone feel comfortable. I love my friend E because she speaks with grace and intelligence and wears clothes to match. I love Camille because she doesn't ever quit at anything and can't talk and laugh at the same time. I love my dad's stunning perfect smile and how my mom wraps bundt cakes in clear celophane and ties cute bows around them and gives them away. I love Amanda's tell it like it is attitude, my boss Julie's sweetness, and Angeline's elegance. If you are not mentioned by name in this post, it doesn't mean that my love for you hasn't entered my mind, because as I think about all the people I have had the pleasure to rub shoulder's with in my 28 years, I am overwhlemed at how lucky I have been. I am so incredibly blessed with meaningful friendships, a loving family, engaging aquaintances and even strangers who influence me every single day.

i. love. people.
