I really think the work ‘love’ is used to often in inappropriate circumstances too often.

Love is used to often to relate to material and frivolous things. That to me has nothing to do with love. It’s about putting everything on hold or at risk for someone, the desire to need nothing else in your life.  But your heart can break so badly when you are told you are loved and you find… View Post

Life has taken a huge turn since my birthday last month. A huge change in direction. A change I didn’t see coming but I’m thankful to the person who set these changes off.
