Love is the Answer

I wanted to write about a comment that Kim left me about my post from yesterday, which was about how Love is always the answer. She wrote that I could love: 


(1) My hurt parts,
This is in fact a blessing because I wouldn't hurt so much if I didn't love her. I can focus on the years of betrayal and my discombobulated sense of reality or I can focus on how much I love her and how grateful I am to know the truth and be closer to her in her pain.

(2) Through what she [Calley] is going through,
She has been suffering for years and will continue to suffer no matter what--if she chooses to stay where she is and suffer the consequences--or if she chooses to recover. I can love her and support her no matter what, while I at the same time take care of myself.

(3) The courage she had to muster to finally live in the truth,
Every time someone chooses the truth over lies it is a cause to rejoice. And choosing authenticity is choosing a lot of other good things as well.

(4) The fact that she has me to love her.
I am glad to be there for her and that I have a love for her that is stronger than this. I will stand by her close or far-away (if it comes down to that). I hope that I can stay close. 


Thank you for this great writing inspiration Kim Queen of Big Love, for reminding me that Love is Always the Answer

She is isn't she, My Queen! I think this is something we all have in common, this belief. It's nice. I'm glad to be a part of this community; at this Thanksgiving I'm grateful for it.

I am also grateful for both of My Queens--Kim and Kate!

xoO

Olivia, It is an intense thing to have to face in your life, but I didn't mean to imply that it was too intense for the blog. Kim sure is wise.

Oh, okay, I just took it wrong, Kelly. I'm sorry. I have lots and lots of wise friends, Kelly, so I'm a lucky gal :) xoO
