Love Is, You Are … everything you’re afraid you’re not
Does it matter who’s watching?
Sitting in our little down-the-street restaurant, Sam and I looked up to see Pam setting our drinks down, just as quietly as she could. She was trying not to interrupt our kiss. We laughed…as she slipped away.
A bit later when she brought dinner, she said it was unusual (and nice) to see “older” people kiss in public. Sam immediately suggested that we could show them how. The conversation was lighthearted, but it offered a glimpse of how other people see us. Kissing is just what we do!

THE choice …
To choose love over fear, is to let go of our security blanket. It is to trust what we cannot see, to trade the tangible for the intangible. It is to realize that there will never be enough stuff to make us feel the way we want to feel … good enough, worthy, lovable. But when we have reclaimed fearless love, there is no turning back. We know we ARE love. We know everything good is a byproduct of love. We know love is all we need.… More
