Not all hearts and flowers

Reflections on the heart #4 - Love is not all hearts and flowers.

Romantic love is all very well, but it doesn't last on its own. It doesn't carry you through hard times. It may be how love starts, but it's not how it endures. Love that endures is not based on feelings but on deliberate and wilful choice to act in a loving way towards someone.

Love is not all hearts and flowers. It is also pain, mundane, and hard work.


  1. Hi Tracy! Win's recent blog post reminded me that I haven't visited for a while and almost forgot how meaningful your art journal pages always are! I so agree with you about your sentiments, though I would find it hard to put them into words so eloquently! Hope you have a lovely weekend!

  2. We could wish for hearts and flowers, but there are times when love is a grind and/or a challenge. And would we have it any other way? I doubt it, when the rewards of loving are so worth it!


Thanks for dropping by. I read and appreciate all your comments.
