Love is…

Prompt: Lovingly


Yes, love is saying you are sorry. I don’t know what the above picture is; I just downloaded it from google images. It is cheesy, but so is the way most of us think about love. I’ve been here on earth a fairly long time, loving and losing or succeeding or felled by exhausted confusion. I have lived enough to know that love is not a fluffy romantic dream, summed up in a platitude. It is precious because we prepare ourselves for it, and enter into it with both heart and eyes wide open. We love people not just in spite of their flaws, but also because of them.

Anyway, thank you to all the wonderful people in my life who have said they were sorry and to those who accepted my apologies with a loving heart.
