I believe that those that write and/or read romance novels nourish their hearts every day.
Love doesn’t always have to be with a special person. It could be a love of cooking. The ultimate gardener tends plants and flowers with love. I know a loving heart that is a foster mom for cats and kittens waiting for a home. It is the love of a family or the love of friends.
It is in the heart every time we do something we care deeply about. It’s in the heart of the nurse or the artist. It is in the heart of the person carefully putting soup on the shelf in the supermarket and in the hearts of people handing out masks.
Every time we do an act of love no matter what it is, even if we think the act to be small, we nourish our hearts with a strength that endures. It isn’t always seen by others but we don’t do it for that reason. We do it for a bigger purpose. Love endures through time, even beyond our individual time. It is the ripple on the water that keeps spreading out.
The wonderful thing about love is that it is limitless in expression and boundless in its reach. Sometimes you find it in the most unexpected places. People remember. I’ve heard family stories and always it is a story about caring and love. Perhaps that is why I write paranormal family sagas.
We are experiencing a hard time on our planet. Love will help us survive and remember. Love begins with loving yourself. Take care of yourself. Be kind to others. They need it. Be safe, because you are important!
