New Love Is Like …

… the the first snowfall in winter — cool and refreshing.


A Song Says Everything

Songs sometimes have a way of saying all I want to say. So I’ll let these lyrics speak for me today.


I cried a tear, you wiped it dry
I was confused, you cleared my mind
I sold my soul, you bought it back for me
And held me up and gave me dignity
Somehow you needed me
I can’t believe it’s true
I needed you and you were there
And I’ll never leave, why should I leave
I’d be a fool
‘Cause I finally found someone who really cares

You held my hand when it was cold
When I was lost you took me home
You gave me hope when I was at the end
And turned my lies back into truth again
You even called me “friend”

You gave me strength to stand alone
To face the world out on my own
You put me high upon a pedestal
So high that I could almost see eternity
You needed me, you needed me

– Lyrics by Anne Murray

Love Is…

… like a stone falling in the water, the ripple effect goes on and on……

You Stand Out

You definitely make me feel a little more normal than perhaps I really am.

Waves of Love

“I pray to be like the ocean, with soft currents, maybe waves at times. More and more, I want the consistency rather than the highs and the lows.”

-Source Unknown


I listen to the ocean, and it tells me things. Even in the midst of this Western city, far from the ocean of my childhood, I still hear the waves whispering to my heart more, perhaps, than I want to know.

Puppy Love

When I love, I love hard. hard. Am I in love now? I’d say yes. Have I been in love before? I’d say yes to that one as well. But it is different.

When I was say, 17, I thought I was in love. There was this guy. I cared about him very deeply. I loved him, I loved him hard.

When I look back, I know that I didn’t feel the same way about him that I do about my current love. That doesn’t necessarily mean that I didn’t love him. When people say that. “You’re 17 you’re not in love, it’s just puppy love!” It’s true … it isn’t the same. That doesn’t mean that it any lesser of a feeling. Your heart is full to the uppermost level it can be given your maturity. That’s love.
