The letter for today my little lovelies is L. This is Day 12 of the A to Z Challenge.
Using the letters of the alphabet as a starting point, bloggers are
challenged to write a post everyday except Sunday. It's a good way to
meet new authors and bloggers, learn about interesting books and topics
and gain readership. If you stalk me (follow) I will stalk you!
My posts are loosely based on emotions/mental drama and anguish while
introducing you to some books bearing the same or closely related
L is for Love
Ah, love! Such a small word yet it creates such intense emotions and evokes so much power. It is often mystical, the power of love, once someone is entangled in it's snare, it is virtually impossible to escape.
Many movies, novels and children's stories tout the wonders and beauty of love, how love, in the end will win and conquer all. The main character sheds a tear, verbally professes her love and magically all the evil is vanquished and they live happily ever after. Well, we know it doesn't quite work that way in the real world.
I believe this little word is over-used daily. For example, I like good food, cake, cookies, chocolate and pies, but I love cupcakes! I don't really love them. As defined love is a profoundly, tender passionate affection for another person. I do like to eat cupcakes, a lot and I do take great pleasure in the many flavors.
This virus, this sickness with it's mystical powers has been around since the beginning of time and often times can be difficult. There was a popular song in the "80's that summed it up pretty well, "love is a battlefield!" But if you are willing to be patient, vigilant and faithful, I believe you will win the battle.
Love should be given and shown daily. How can you express love? Love can be expressed in a simple hug, a kind word or the toilet seat being put down. :)
Love on the Bookshelf
In Love, Stargirl, we hear the voice of Stargirl herself as she reflects on time, life, Leo, and - of course - love.
Couples who understand
each other's love language hold a priceless advantage in the quest for
love that lasts a lifetime -- they know how to effectively and
consistently make each other feel truly and deeply loved. That gift
never fades away.
