For 2017

"Life is lived forward, but understood backward. It is not until we are down the road and we stand on the mountain looking back through the valley that we can appreciate the terrain God has allowed us to scale.” Jill Savage

Love


Picture borrowed from Buddha of Hollywood.

The gift of the present. That's really all we have so let's use it wisely.

Life is like a roll of toilet paper - the end rolls up a lot faster than the beginning!

Now you HAVE to watch this video - it's what true love is all about.

Doing something that costs YOU for the sake of someone else - a true gift of love and understanding.

We must not only give what we have; we must also give what we are.- Cardinal Mercia

Love consists in looking together in the same direction. - Antoine de Saint-Exupery
(Not out of the same eyes-Chatty).

And how about this one: To love and be loved is to feel the sun from both sides.
- David Viscott (Doesn't that feel good to think about - I feel warm and fuzzy just thinking about that.)

And from one of my favorite 'philosophers' - For one human being to love another: that is perhaps the most difficult of our tasks; the ultimate, the last test and proof, the work for which all other work is but preparation. - Rainer Maria Rilke

Love is hard and it is not for cowards or the weak of heart. It's a struggle for sure.

Love,
Chatty

Marriage is absolutely the HARDEST thing I've ever done!
Sometimes, love turns out to be a real pain in the buttocks!
