Good Morning lovelies, and Welcome to the Coffee Chat!

I've got a bottomless cup of coffee today, as I am in catch up mode!
Does it seem I am always in catch up mode?
I feel like I'm always in catch up mode.

I have a very good reason - this time.

Since Left Brain missed all of Valentine's Weekend due to work, AND the fact that it was his birthday this past Sunday and he had the whole weekend off.....

...Hello Hotel Vacation!!!

Also, pillow top mattresses and room service should be mandatory in life.

Just let your love flow....

Time out for Mom

 Love.  Amour.   What is it?  Does it happen at first sight?  
Do you only get one great love per life time?  
How do YOU know love?

Ummmm....  *sound of crickets*

Wow.   One thing I can say for sure; love is a lot easier to experience - than it is to define.

It's a force of nature.  Yet, it's a law unto itself. 
It's a surrendering of Will.   Self.  Ego.  
Love always seeks the best for you.   It cares for you.   It is inherently compassionate.
Love knows that we are all interconnected.

Okay, first thing we all feel I guess is that "certain something something".
Love is chemistry.     A thirst that is never quite quenched perhaps.

Still, it comes in many forms.     Family, friends, lovers.... passions and hobbies.    We love all of this.

Reminder:  first and foremost though:  Yourself!!  
That's important.

Without any passionate commitment, we could say it is simply infatuation.
This is where I would say, YES Love at First Sight is entirely possible.   However ---- one must be very mature, very self aware; and be willing to nurture and protect that Thunderstruck feeling past the first few twinges within our wildly beating hearts.

You ever put your arms out and spin really, really fast?

Well, that's what love is like. It makes your heart race. It turns the world upside down. But if you're not careful, if you don't keep your eyes on something still, you can lose your balance. You can't see what's happening to the people around you. You can't see that you're about to fall. 

Even the greatest and best storybook loves would have withered and died without any kind of nurturing or dedication.

Love is the great paradox:  It frees us, but is also binds us.   Right moms?

And love really does drive all the greatest stories, doesn't it?

Okay..... here is another snippet from a story I started.   The previous one, Run To You,  is HERE. 

pull over now.

Your eyes leave the road and snap in his direction. 

His full stare is on you now, but those shades reveal nothing.  The car gradually pulls on to the gravel side, and you once more glance his way  - the question in your eyes - as the car comes to a slow halt.   You turn the CD volume down…..and wait.

Nothing.   But the firm set to his jaw… that nerve pulsing, tells you he is very intent on something.  

Sooooo, why are we stopped on the side road with miles still to go?  Is my singing actually making you ill?

He removes the sunglasses; but you already took note of how that eyebrow wiggled and raised, while his eyes found yours and held.  The crooked grin flashed and your heart hammered.   Still, you were unprepared for that moment when he leaned toward you, and the whispered caress from his lips, so very close to yours…

because I couldn’t wait any longer to kiss you.

And that was the moment it all began to change.  At the side of a country road, where the only sure things were that white line disappearing into the horizon of an uncertain future.   And how right his lips felt on yours.

However you experience it.
However you define it.
One thing that can be concluded:  Love is truly Life's greatest blessing.

Next Week:  Random Confession.  It's good for the soul! 

Share your random thoughts over at Stacey's too!
