Twenty-seven Years

Month of Love: Day 11

Today is the 27th anniversary of the day my husband Dale and I met.
Still a happy couple.
Moving forward together with strength and curiosity.

Love grows more
tremendously full,
swift, poignant,
as the years multiply.
~ Zane Grey

Love Your Originality

Month of Love: Day 8

Every single one of us can do things
that no one else can do --
can love things that no one else can love.
We are like violins.
We can be used for doorstops,
or we can make music.
You know what to do.
~ Barbara Sher

Let's Not Throw Rocks, OK?

Month of Love: Day 6

I wish that people
who are conventionally supposed to love each other
would say to each other, when they fight,
"Please — a little less love, and a little more common decency."
~ Kurt Vonnegut
