Love is who you are.

“Love isn’t just something that you do … it’s who you are.” … Susanne

The world asks: “What is love?”  The greeting card industry wishes us to believe that it’s all about cards filled with sparkly hearts and flowery phrases … delivered on predetermined dates.  Poets and philosophers tell us that love is anything from the warm fuzzies that we feel for puppies and babies to “the very air that we breathe”.  So … “What is love?”

 I remember the love of my youth … idealistic … perceived as lasting forever … and devastating in its endings.  As a mom there was … and still is … the deep love for and from my children … unconditional … and lasting through good times and bad.  My years as a wife brought both companionship and closeness … along with times of sadness and feelings of betrayal … followed promptly by grieving for lost dreams.

At this stage of my life I feel really blessed to be able to perceive the awesome love of Life … for all life … unconditional … truly lasting forever … and never giving up on  any of us.  I see evidence of aforementioned love in my unfolding moments and days … in Miss Perky’s ever-present giggles and laughter … in the caring and thoughtfulness of friends and family … and lastly in the spotlight that Life shines my way so that I can discover the most surprising source of all  …  my deepening awareness  that love is actually who I am.  After all this time it turns out that the love that I had so ardently sought all of my life … has really been inside of me all along.  Who knew!??!

Godspeed and Joyful Journeying Everyone

Susanne
