Pleased Steps

Senitmental is how she felt nineteen years ago today 

Ernestly she tried to hold onto that moment in time 

Never wanting it to end, because it was so precious 

The joy in her heart was more than she could believe

Is this what love is supposed to feel like

Might this capture a glimpse of our Father’s love for us 

Either way, all she knows is that, the youngest part of her heart turned 

Nineteen today and that is reason a for sentimental-ness

Today’s assignment for us all is to be sentimental and compassionate to one 

Another. It is our sole purpose in this life of ours to 

Live free and to love on purpose

Remember to Live Free and Love On Purpose 💋🎉✌

    I think this was well-wrtiten and to the point. I sometimes find myself trying to relive sentimental moments from six years ago today. Time and life happens, and it almost numbs those aspects. Cheers to the new senitmentals!
