Love – L – A to Z Challenge

You are loved!

Someone or something within this universe loves you.
There is someone looking up to you.
There is someone willing to help you. Just ask.

You are loved!

If you don’t show up for work, without a warning, your colleagues might wonder or even worry, where you are.
If you go quiet on your blog, your Instagram, there will be people asking themselves where you are. Maybe they will send out a message to see if you are ok.
If you are selling the big issue and are no longer coming, the passerbys will hope in their hearts that you are ok, that you found a good path to walk, that you won’t be selling the big issue again, that you are living a better life.
If you forget that you have a lesson or when you are not showing up to an event without warning. Someone will worry.

When Notre-Dame burnt on Monday, there was a wave of love.

When the Bataclan attack happened in November 2015, the love that circulated was impressive. I received many kind words on my blog. I send messages to check if everyone I knew was fine.

When my mother passed away, a person loving me from before I was born, loving me from the moment of my conception, a strong source of love for me was ripped from my life. Many people loved her and love her. The love I received from friends and strangers after her death was overwhelming.

You are loved!

You are loved! This message is always spread by Ra, who blogs on Rarasaur. It is a message that we should spread more.

You are loved!

Love is vast. Love is magic. Love might be hard to define, but it exists, in various shapes and intensities.

A child's love for their parents.
A child's love for their sisters and brothers.
Their cousins, grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, great-grandparents, their family.
The love for a dear friend.
The love for a lover.
The love for a stranger.
A parent's love for their children.
The love for fellow humans.
The cat loves its owner, just think of the snuggles and the purrs.
The dog manifests its love when you come home. Those muddy paws on your trousers and the lick on your face? Love
Mother earth loves you, look outside, she's doing her best to give you beautiful seasons.

Who do you love?

Christmas Away From Home

By Katharina Barten

A year ago I was in Canada living with a host family and I was experiencing some Christmas traditions that we don’t have here or at least that I don’t practice.

One of them was baking a gingerbread house. I had never done that before but I got to say that I really enjoyed it. Another thing that I wasn’t used to was all the decorating of the exterior of the house but I also liked that a lot. These are just some things I remember and I must say I kind of miss my Canadian Christmas but I am very happy to spend it here in Germany this year spending Christmas our way because that’s what I grew up with
