LOVe. the new season coming soon

Love is needed and if you don’t have it, create it.

We may not want to admit that we need or want it, but let’s face it, we all do. Something about love makes you feel like everything will be okay.

When I was just a young Bella and growing up, I never felt love. No one ever told me they loved me, nor was I treated as if I were loved. I spent a lot of time alone, and I grew comfortable being in my own space. 

During my alone time, I watched corny shows like:

  • Make room for daddy
  • Dick Van Dyke
  • Donna Reed
  • Leave it, Beaver
  • Brady Bunch

The actors on these particular shows portrayed a family unity that I wish I had. The mothers seemed to be present, supportive, positive, and insightful. Then there were the fathers, they ranged all over the board, but the one thing they had in common was the fact they there were THERE!

Every night as I lay in my bed with a bowl of popcorn and a cup of hot tea on my nightstand, I was able to live a little. At those moments, I knew what a loved family looked like and what it should feel like.

Yes, I know, I know, I know that these are people pretending, and their lives were not actual examples of what I saw on the screen, but I did know that I could make it real one day.

My household and the love that my husband and I created for our kids may not be perfect (what does perfect even mean), but it’s our own comfortable idea of perfect. 

We showered our kids with love by;

  1. Being present
  2. Hugs and kisses
  4. Saying I LOVE YOU

We made our own little forever corny episodes, and I look forward to our new season. We will be forever changing, growing, learning, laughing, hugging, and loving.

2022 will be the best season of LOVe yet!

You could have chosen any blog to read, but you chose mine, and I’m honored!

  1. I love how and what you share in your post. “I did know that I could make it real one day.” – this resonates with me a lot, I used anything and everything to make it my dream and then a reality for me :)))

  2. You go girl. 🏃🏽‍♀️ The next episode, LOVe, the Belladonna Way!!!! 🤩 You know sistah, eventhough we can’t rewind the hands of time, and the things that occurred during our childhood years (the good, the bad, and the ugly), you are able to direct the narrative of the present. I love the way you are creating memories with your family, showing them a side of love that is nurturing and encouraging. This is a tradition they will pass on to your grandchildren! Yes? Yes!

    Happy VD girlfriend! 💘🤗💞😘💖🥰💋

    1. Now you have ya girl tearing up.
      It took me years and years to get this way but I’m so happy that I found my new way when my kids were small. And thought of grandchildren is scary!!!! LOL

      1. Yes, ma’am, thinking about the next episode is quite a challenge. But girlfriend, you are a precious vessel, and the challenges that you go through are only periods of “growing” through. When the grandkids start comin’ around the mountain, you’ll be meeting them riding a stallion wearing stilettoes, like Beyonce in the video “Who Runs the World”…Girls and fabulous grandmothers!!! 🐴👠🐎
