- For Living Life's Adventure -
On matters of the heart, I have much to thank the ladies who I have known; especially on this special day - St. Valentines, a day of love.
" You're never too old for love." my 98 year old, spinster, aunt told me as we spoke of her 90 year old boyfriend.
" You have to love yourself first." my mother told me when I was entering my teen years.
" Do you still love your first wife? " my date asked me; to which I replied " I still love something about every woman who I dated." - or why would I have dated them at all ?
The truths imparted in these exchanges are central to my perspective on love and relationships, especially as I approach my 65th birthday. Love is all around. Some might be for us if we first love ourselves and spread love in daily life.
St. Valentines Day, today, is a good time to take stock of our love and spread its goodness every moment.
