My Love

Alrighty….it is now time for Exercise 11 of the Sandbox Writing Challenge. This weeks prompt is as follows:



“It was not into my ear you whispered, but into my heart. It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul. ~Judy Garland~

“It’s clear to me now that I have been moving toward you and you toward me for a long time. Though neither of us was aware of the other before we met, there was a kind of mindless certainty bumming blithely along beneath our ignorance that ensured we would come together. Like two solitary birds flying the great prairies by celestial reckoning, all of these years and lifetimes we have been moving toward one another.” ~Robert James Waller, Bridges Of Madison County~

It’s been 75 weeks now since Jim gained his wings and left this earth. What I have discovered over the course of my widowed journey is that LOVE GOES ON and IT CONTINUES TO GROW. Our Love didn’t die with Jim. Instead it transcends time and space……..How do I know that, you may ask. How can I not?

I FEEL IT. Just as surely as if he was sitting here next to me. While here with me, he promised to always take care of me. From where he is now, he is keeping his promise to me. With a Grateful and Thankful and humbled Heart I feel and know his love.

It’s that Love that I draw strength and comfort from.

  2. Reblogged this on Anna Cottage and commented:
    “Love Never Dies” Such a moving blog, such heartfelt words. When you share a love as close as that, love can never die. Even sometimes when its one sided deep in the Heart there is still Love.

  3. So beautiful, Linda, and so true. I was going to use that song in my own, but I only had the instrumentals, and the words are so very needed. And I truly believe that all those I’ve loved who have crossed over are now fully in the Universe, and are in everything part of Nature; the hawks flying, the horses I see grazing, the whispers of the wind as it rustles the leaves in the trees, all are signs that my loves are still with me, and will always be thus.

Have something to share....I'd love to hear it!!!
