I am more engaged than ever in my relationship with my husband Sam. And it’s because I am more free.
Often, we think we’ve gotten over a hurdle. And we have; but there are more to jump. We miss out if we stop recognizing the hurdles. They’re opportunities to lose more fear.
Aging is a gift (bearing hurdles). It demands that we work to keep our relationship vibrant … or give up on aliveness. Love perseveres.
And I want to report that it’s worth it. Sam and I have been volleying a ball back and forth in the pool before dinner. It’s such a simple thing, but it’s enchanting. And it’s an example of loving and accepting each other, having fun, and not keeping score. And, hey, we play like we mean it, so it’s good exercise.
Forever a student of love,
