Whenever you think of love do you think it looks like a beautiful romantic movie?
You know they meet on que, the sun is shining bright, the orchestra is playing the perfect melody and our two characters fall in love as it's meant to be.
The world as we know it is finally working out the way it should, as we knew it was meant to.
Your heart feels that surge of emotions, you too become engulfed with love as you witness these lovebirds being swept away the music of love.
You let out a deep breath and your body rests assured that life is really meant to work out. Love is there to carry you away and set you free.
Marriage isn't always easy, in fact it's rarely easy.
We find it so easy to replace things in life like shoes, cars and handbags.
But do we treat our relationships the way we treat things?
When looking for relationship advice, there isn't an easy answer.
Relationships take work, they take commitment.
Last night I had a moment with my dad that will go down as one of those treasured moments that I will always carry in my heart. My parents and siblings are pretty sad about my moving back to Los Angeles and truthfully, there’s a part of my heart that is just as sad. For the past 2 years my family and I have taken a devastating circumstance (my baby sister being hit by a drunk driver and currently confined to living in a nursing home) and we’ve allowed love to come in and be our strength. As a result it has made our love, our value for one another grow stronger than ever. We have been restored in many areas of our hearts and we’ve learned to love one another better than ever. Needless to say when there’s so much love you don’t want to leave it.
So last night I looked over at my dad and I could see him getting teary eyed (one thing I looove about my dad is that he has always put his emotions out there for us and as a little girl and now woman, this is huge to my heart) and immediately I went to him and held him. I kissed him on his head with the thinning hair on top (I never thought my parents would ever age) and hugged him tight, while giving him a big kiss. From there I went to my mom and sat on her lap and held her as well. My dad began to choke up as he said “It’s just so far.” Grant it my parents have lost me to further places in the past as I used to live in England, but knowing my dad’s heart, even if I lived next door to Texas in Louisiana it would still be too far.
