"LOVE IS..." and Other Things That Matter

"LOVE IS...SHARING EVEN THE HARD TIMES"

I've decided that on Wednesdays I'm going to share with you my favorite "LOVE IS..." sentiments. Simply put, these charming little clippings mean the world to me and I hope you will enjoy them...

Many years ago when my Mr.AGPMan and I were dating, we were separated by many miles and our only source of contact came in the writing of letters. Tucked inside nearly every envelope I found not only beautiful words penned by my guy, but also the latest "LOVE IS...." drawing as well. They always made me smile.

I just couldn't resist scanning in a bunch of my favorite ones to share with you over the upcoming weeks. I believe the captions are as relevant today as they were 30 years ago...

Blessings to you as you experience both the good and not so good of life...Rebecca

Hi Rebecca! Taking a few moments tonight to catch up on some of your past posts! I love the Love Is... cartoons, too. So sweet that you have kept them. Your tribute to your sweet mother is inspiring & so loving. Thanks for sharing so much of your life...& your heart.

Too cute what sweet little granddaughter prayed ~ Kids do say the funniest things. Not just kids, tho....tonight a tv anchor started talking about the "fwine slu", (swine flu)I kid you not!

I so adore your Fancy Edging sign & the cross-stitch pillows & the sachets & the train case.....don't think I've seen anything I DON'T love!!

Big Hugs,

I was a little "worried" about the nakie thing... But, I figured if I tried to fix their little clothes-less bodies and cover them up I might make the two sweeties look worse! :( LOL

Thank you Rebecca for visiting my blog and leaving such a sweet note. You inspire me and when I feel I am floundering spiritually I always think of your lovely words and reminded that we are only human and as you know this all too well. Thank you for being you.
God bless. Susan

Oh my I remember these little sayings,I have often wondered what happened to all the merchandise that went along with them,the many greeting cards and tacky little plastic figurines that were oh so adorable. Thanks for the memories.
What a great idea to post these ,the world needs this cute little couple again.
Blessings.

Rebecca,
This is so adorable, and I love the idea of sharing what love is on Wednesday. I will be looking forward to more..
This reminds me of when my father was overseas in Korea, he wrote my mother everyday, and put a piece of gum in his letter. Thanks for the memory.
Blessings,
Sue

Very, very sweet! My husband and I also wrote many letters during our "courtship." I savor that time now, but it was so hard to be apart then.

Have a great weekend! Many blessings!
