#FacetsOfLOVE  

And for the very final one, the best text on love I've encountered in my life so far:

I thought I loved my wife from the moment we started dating. I was wrong.

#FacetsOfLOVE [repost]

… when her name was called, would stand, take a breath, and hand her purse over to her husband. Then she’d disappear into the recesses of the radiation room, leaving behind a stony-faced man holding what was typically a white vinyl pocketbook. On his lap. The guy -- usually retired from the trades, a grandfather a dozen times over, a Sox fan since date of conception -- sat there silently with that purse. He didn’t read, he didn’t talk, he just sat there...
Everything I know about marriage I learned in my cancer clinic.” I've been known to say this to my friends, maybe more than once, maybe even causing some of them to grind their teeth and grumble about Robin and Her Infernal Life Lessons.

Some of the most wondrous things that G+ peeps wrote for love during the year.
 
So I wrote her a love letter!

Roger Rabbit love letter

Melanie celebrated a birthday last week, just a few days before she lost her mother.  I typically have a very difficult time finding the right gift for her, so I tried something a bit different -- I wrote her a poem of sorts.  She liked it (she said so, in public).  I also found her an antique jewelry chest that was a hit, too, but writing down in words and sharing them with the world (I shared it on that other social media site the morning of her birthday) made permanent the things I tell her often that she quickly dismisses.

She's an amazing person, as is everyone in her family.  I don't share as much about her on Google+ because she hasn't joined the community (yet, I may get her here after she finishes her next, last semester for her CAS), but I think you'd all like her quite a bit.  I know she'll enjoy this community when she gets here.

The general theory of why we fail to know what we should know.
Anyone we could marry would, of course, be a little wrong for us. It is wise to be appropriately pessimistic here. Nevertheless, one encounters some couples of such primal, grinding mismatch.

That is one of the sweetest, most inspiring stories I have ever read, all the better because its non fiction :)

Some love stories are truly bizarre. They are real nevertheless. And they are lessons.
I never truly believed I'd get married. As a little girl, I dreamed of being the beautiful woman in the ball gown that the Prince chose to dance with at the Cinderella ball. “That one,” he'd say, pointing at me. I would feign surprise, of course. “Who? Me? No…” But I wouldn't really be surprised ...

Great job with this report, BBC.

(By the way, firing those "consulting" the government and rehiring the cleaning ladies? That's the attitude I wish my government had).

Introduction
Reasons why I followed you: mainly because you display a shining personality in your posts and/or comments; or you posted in one of these topics; or I recognized your name from an online community or a virtual world we both belong to (if so, you will be able to see my alias under "other names").

HSP: We watch...and see what others miss (road signs are too mundane though).

Funny pictures, hobbies, and redundant whining go by +Jurate.
