I Love You Like That

I love you like.....that feeling you get....

When you know something is missing, but you don't know exactly what it is and you feel a bit lost and empty, but don't know how to fix it. Then from out of the blue you hear a faint whisper from your heart and you decide to listen. You are overcome with so much joy that your heart feels as if it swells and skips a beat and you know you will never again be able to live without what you've found.

I love you like that.

When you're swinging on a swing and you're getting higher and higher and the breeze is blowing your hair back. You get that butterfly feeling in your belly each time the swing falls back and although you know you could fall off and get hurt, you decide to just hold on as tight as you can and enjoy that feeling of falling.

I love you like that. 

When you're laying out in the yard on a beautiful day and the sun is shining down on you warming your face, heart, and soul. You think to yourself that this is the most perfect moment you wish you could freeze in time and live in forever. You smile and take in every detail of that moment, hoping you won't forget it because you've never felt more at peace and more complete. 

I love you like that. 

When there's a new crispness in the air and the leaves are beginning to change and you're sitting on your front porch steps with a hot coffee between your hands, looking out on all that you love. You're wishing the warmer days would stick around a bit longer because you don't feel ready for the change you know is to come. Yet you're hopeful and excited thinking about the days, weeks, months, and years that have not yet happened.

I love you like that.


With love,
Mama Hauck

  1. Beautiful. Some of these things I've felt, some I never will but the intensity of it always seems to come through in your writing Becca.

    Love this.
