Agatha Christie once said if she hadn’t experienced so much success with her mysteries, she would’ve written romance. If you think about it, most of her mysteries wove romance into the story somewhere.
As we bid farewell to February, love lingers with gossamer stubbornness in my writing and in my thoughts.
There’s so much more to celebrating love and romance than roses, cards and candy.
Appreciation: We need to appreciate each other and focus on the good things, not dwell on negatives. Call it positive reenforcement.
Communication: In real life or in fiction, simply communicating with one another smooths out conflict. That doesn’t mean just talking – it means listening. To truly listen is a secret key.
Caring: Show you care by doing something nice each day. Be sweet and wash the dishes when it’s not your turn. Or call just to say hello. Remember that an impulsive hug, kiss or a whispered “I love you” boomerangs back to you.
May love flow for you each day throughout the year.
Making someone love you
is no more possible
than capturing a moonbeam
Impossible to trap
love cannot be forced
allow love to flow to you
surrounding you with magic
