When an abstract noun is a verb...

With all the hate in this world, how about some talk about love, romantic or otherwise. We all experience love in different ways. Some of us experience floods of it from various important people in our lives. Others of us, unfortunately, experience great times of silence and solitude in our lives. You can be married, surrounded by those you love, or completely alone...but that solitude and lack of experiencing love hovers over like a smothering cloud. Imagine what you might take for granted if you are one of the luckier ones in this life. You are shown love or hear from someone that matters that you are loved by them. What if you never heard loving words or experienced loving acts.

My point? Express love first...don't wait for someone else. That person you are counting on to reach out to you might be beaten down and in that long moment of silence and solitude hoping to be loved. Perhaps you are the one who needs to take the risk, first. Love your better halves, your children, your friends, your family, and yourself. If you don't, you may find yourself alone in the midst of your world.

Good one RT. Love is reciprocal sp? You show love, you will recieve love. It's one of the Laws that God set up in the world.

And when forgiveness is attached it is even better...because that really takes some real love.
