How we love

September 5, 2017

Love by itself is more than enough.

No fancy gee-gaws, no big proclamations, just that warm feeling of being there for another, those thoughtful words, a loving touch. A warm hug.

Love. We love to receive it and yes, many of us love to give it.  It really does give our lives meaning. In this world and the next.

Sometimes, when we’re at a distance, it can be hard to be there for another.

We’re all about giving you ways to be there for someone at a distance, when you can’t be there in person.

See our beautiful, reasonably priced gift packages that tell you loved one you’re thinking of them during difficult times.

    I am so thankful that my entire family is within an hour. I think it’s nice to stay in touch and send little gifts to family who is far away.

  2. Hi Carol! Yes, it is nice to be able to send a thoughtful gift to express our love. Thanks for offering them. Like you say, your gifts can be a sort of “hug from a distance!” ~Kathy

  3. I’m so grateful to have close family and friends in close proximity to me. Family and friends are the core of any life.

  4. Haralee says:

    I love your sentiments!!

  5. Having the ability to express and show real love is so rare. It takes a special person and it means so much to the people who receive the love.

  6. Anna Palmer says:

    It is the best reason to have pets. Which I know you understand.

  7. My daughter will move to the West Coast in the next six weeks. It will be thrilling and exciting and also, an adjustment to be so far from each other. I’ll be back to select something soothing.

  8. Diane says:

    Love is my anchor in this world. Knowing I have the love of family and friends keeps me balanced and keeps me going.
    And especially love expressed in the simplest/kindeest of ways.
    That’s what makes your gifts so beautiful. They are simple, sweet and touch the heart just when and where it most needs it!

  9. Blessed with great kids, family and puppy dogs. Love is all there is.

  10. Jen Temcio says:

    My daughter moved to a different state and it is really hard to not hug her and see her. I need to be proactive about sending more mail!!

  11. As I read this, I said to myself, “Maybe this is why so many of us are dog and/or cat people.” It’s the unconditional love thing that has us outside with our dog and poop bags during snow storms. Clearly, one of the things for which we humans are hard-wired is love—-hate and avarice too….but that’s a blog post for another day. 😉

  12. I love giving people gifts! Even more than receiving them! Especially in the mail, because it’s so fun to open up packages.

  13. Zoran Stankovic says:

    Blessed with family and puppy dog!Love is all thete is!

  14. I live 3000 miles away from 99% of my friends and family. It’s hard, care packages are a huge part of my daily life. Usually sending them, especially when one of them is having a bad day. I love that you offer gifts designed for this.

  15. I love your featured photo… so simple yet so meaningful! Gifts are my love language and I’m a big believer in showing love even at a distance.

  16. Liz Mays says:

    It really is good to show loved ones you care even when you’re far away. We need those reminders sometimes.

  17. BeTh Havey says:

    Love gets me up in the morning, love for my life, my family, my writing. Love for this community. My eyes open and I think, better post on MIDLIFE because I’m on the west coast and often at the BOTTOM OF THE LIST.

  18. Ellen Dolgen says:

    The most important thing is life is to love and to allow yourself to be loved! My husband and I cherish our love and friendship with each other. If you live your life like this – you are truly successful in the most meaningful way. My daughter, son-in-law, and granddaughter are 10 min from our house. My husband and I go over for hugs as often as we can. Those hugs and laughter nourish our souls and spark our imaginations and creativity. Our son lives 2 1/2 hours away. My husband drives into LA to have a Father/son lunch once a month. Family and our dear friends are everything to us!

  19. Pam Wattenbarger says:

    One of my children is away at college about six hours from home. It’s great to send him gifts so he knows we are thinking of him often.

  20. Theresa says:

    I don’t think you really realize how much you love and miss someone until they aren’t around everyday. Now that my daughter is away at college, I miss her like crazy. I think a care package would be a lovely way to let her know I am thinking of her.

  21. Mitch says:

    Family can be hard, but it is so important. And having a child made me put my feelings on the back burner, in a good, forgiving way. Forgiving of myself. I am glad we have family all within an hour so our child can see them and grow up knowing them.

  22. Kristi says:

    It’s so important to slow down just a little and remind those around us that we care and are thinking of them.

  23. Love and passion make it all worth it! Got to have both in my mind to life a great life!

  25. Nadalie says:

    I am so thankful for my friends and family. I appreciate their unwavering love. I was just commenting to my mom yesterday how lucky I feel to have friends that have stuck from childhood. Yay, for love!

  26. nefeli says:

    Love caring my near friends and family. I think giving small gifts make them happy. Nice idea

  27. Dogvills says:

    My family stay close to one another. We live within a few miles of each other so we see each other often, if not everyday. I can understand it would be difficult if a family member is away. My husband’s nephew is in the military and is currently deployed. I will suggest to my husband that we include one or two of your products in the care box we will send next month.

  28. I always try to show a bit of love in small ways to those I don’t live close to. It can be easy to forget they’re in your life and still need that affection.

  29. Wendy Polisi says:

  30. Cinny says:

    I am thankful that my family is so supportive and there when I need them. When I see families and people who aren’t in the same situation, it really reinforces how fortunate I am.

  31. Julie Syl says:

    That is true! Love is always more than enough. Love is so wonderful, it covers all other aspect of human being.

  32. Gayathri says:

    I have recently moved to a different coutnry. While it is all exciting anf cool to be here, I am missign my parents and friends who are so far away.

  33. I always tell me kids (not sure if it’s healthy in the long-run) that NO ONE will love them more than me. I want to instill in my kids that no matter what, they will ALWAYS be loved. I tell them and I show them. Kids should always know what love is. If they receive it, they will give it!

  34. This is a great post! I always need reminders like these. Just on time.

  35. Thena says:

    Great job writing this post. It’s always a good reminder. and I enjoy your style!

  36. I do love my family. I do give a simple gift for them especially to my mom, my aunt and my grandma who always gives their best to take care of us. And now, every time they need something, i will assure that i can give what they need to show my love.

  37. I guess I am super fortunate that everyone I love is within close proximity to me. Thanks for linking up with #TwinklyTuesday

  38. I think simply being interested in someone else’s life is huge! That’s how I always know someone cares.



  39. I’m fortunate to have my family close by Carol but when my daughter lived in London for a year I missed her terribly. I love your packages and what you are offering to help enrich our lives.
