What’s LOVE got to do with it? Part 2

What’s love got to do with it ?   As I said before; everything!

Yesterday when I was sitting with my husband I got a glimpse of what it would be like without him.  In a casual remark while we discussed our puppies he said, “Have my dad take care of them.”   That shot a hole in my day… I was aghast… his dad died 24 years ago.  Where is his reality?  Where is his clarity of thought?  I asked who he meant and with coaching, he realized he was off track.

The man I love is still there, but I must admit that scared me.  Our relationship has so many facets and one of the most important is communication.  We talk about everything!  We write books together, we plan together and share so many “like” thoughts, we laugh at the sheer joy our like-minds bring to us.  What if this is gone?  What if this is just the beginning of losing that dear connection we have?

I pray it isn’t gone or diminishing.  I don’t want to lose the man I married, the man I love… to the fickle elements of a stroke.

So dear friends on this beautiful Friday morning I would like to encourage you to embrace the ones you love.  Forgo anger or frustration with their imperfections, and imagine your life without them…

Have a wonderful day!
