“Experts on romance say for a happy marriage there has to be more than a passionate love. For a lasting union, they insist, there must be a genuine liking for each other. Which, in my book, is a good definition for friendship.” – Marilyn Monroe
Layers of Marriage
Layers of Happiness
Because it really does take more than passion to make marriage a success. It really does take one layer of relationship after another to make it work.
Happy Mother’s Day to all of the women in my life who have served as a mother figure, who have inspired me, who have encouraged me, who have supported me, and who have helped me become the woman I am today. I appreciate your sacrifices of love, of time and of self, for me, as well as, for all people in your lives.
“Many of us spend our whole lives running from feeling with the mistaken belief that you cannot bear the pain. But you have already borne the pain. What you have not done is feel all that you are beyond that pain.” – Bartholomew
The Rhododendron Blooms
Don’t be afraid to let yourself feel.
Feel love, give love, and accept love, when you have the opportunity. Don’t let the special moments pass you by because of a fear of emotional pain. You will gain much more than you will lose.
