To me, lover is one of the most powerful words in the world. And when you combine that word and an artisan box of chocolates…..holy true love. In our home, we use the word liberally. We are all lovers. Lovers of life. Lovers of each other. Since becoming a mother, I have a new appreciation for how you can be good at loving so many people and doing it well or not so well always. To be a lover in my world is to love someone with all of the gusto you have and I think we can all do better at that.
My Main Squeeze is living and breathing proof of this. He has a small circle of people that and he loves and he loves these people with all of the gusto that he has. He doesn’t spread himself too thin — he knows his limits and those of us in that circle feel his love.
Cheers to loving the important people in our life with all our hearts (and then buying them chocolate). As I was packing up for a recent business trip, this is what I found waiting to be packed.
Happy 13th Lover.
