What is Love?

Love is a wonderful gift. It’s a present so precious that words can barely begin to describe it. Love is a feeling, the deepest and sweetest of all. It’s incredibly strong and amazingly gentle at the same time. It is a blessing that should be counted every day. It is nourishment for the soul.

It is a devotion, constantly letting each person know how supportive its certainty can be. Love is a heart filled with affection for the most important individual in one’s life. Love is looking at the special someone who makes your world go around and absolutely loving what you see. Continue reading

Nothing Could Be Sweeter Than This

nothing could be sweeter than this

I’ve included a mix of information on this site so that it is balanced in its focus. I don’t want the site to be depressing so I’ve included uplifting articles like this one. When you’ve overcome your addiction to men who hurt you and treat you badly, the following is what you can look forward to having when you find a decent man who is capable of having a loving relationship – nothing could be sweeter than this.

Nothing Could Be Sweeter Than This

My favourite thing in the entire universe is just to be sitting across from you, looking into your eyes, talking about anything and everything, and feeling so wonderful inside. Nothing could be sweeter than this.

But it’s more than that…. Continue reading

The Bravehearts of Belgrave High

The Bravehearts of Belgrave High

Well I haven’t posted any of my own writings here for a while now because I’ve been writing a novel for teenage girls. I’m almost finished editing and formatting it, and shortly it will go on sale. I’ve written it so that teen readers can get lost in the story line and relate to the experiences of the heroine when they are growing up in a dysfunctional home where there is violence and verbal abuse, and where the effects of that flow over into other areas of their lives. Here’s a bit about the first novel in the series of seven:

The Bravehearts of Belgrave High

Once in a while comes a tale of heroism that lifts you out of the mundane and into magical worlds beyond. Such are the Tolemac Chronicles and the exploits of our heroine Viviane.

Let’s face it, growing up has never been easy. Finding your way on that difficult journey between childhood and adulthood can be a lonely experience. Especially if you feel you are different from other people, left wondering desperately where you fit in. The Chronicles explore these experiences as they follow the journey of Viviane, our teenage heroine.

What Do I Want in a Relationship?

What do I want in a relationship

Love letter to the Universe. If you were to write this letter down and speak it aloud to yourself every day for a month, you’d manifest the man who matches these qualities.

What Do I Want in a Relationship?

I want emotional closeness. I want sharing. I want a beautiful bridge between us that is always there, always open, always secure, always ours alone.

I want communication. I want words that speak our language.

I want touches that say more than words mean. I want to talk things over, whether they’re little or large. I want to be more in touch with you than I’ve ever been before.

I want the things we do to turn into some of the nicest memories that any two people could ever ask for.

With you, I want friendship. I want love. I want gentleness. I want strength. I want as much happiness as tomorrow can promise to anyone.

I want to be home to you. I want you to be home to me.

And I want to be in a relationship that keeps on growing and goes on giving the best it has to give.

I found what I was searching for. And now, the thing I most want to do is let you know how very much…. I love you.

Children’s Education in Finland

Here is an amazing article about the wonders of children’s education in Finland.  Finland produces some of the highest scores in the whole world by children who have been educated using their methods. Click on the link at the end of the snippet from the article to be taken to the article itself.

Children’s Education in Finland

All Finnish kids address their teachers by their first names, as the students at Helsinki’s Strömberg School do, but many other aspects of education at this school can be considered progressive no matter where you’re from. Let’s open the door and step inside.

The Wonders of Love

The Wonders of Love

There are few miracles in this universe that are as amazing as the wonders of love. When it is true and real and lasting, if forms and unbreakable bond between two very fortunate people. It is always there and always caring.

Love lives in the deepest part of the heart, but it appears as often as it can….. to inspire a grin on the face, a smile in the eyes, a serenity in the soul and a quiet gratitude in the days.

When a truly deep bond occurs between two people, the energy of that loving bond emanates for a vast distance around them. This is the original reason why it was taught by Jesus and other such Masters that being in a loving and happy committed union ie. marriage, was so important. When two people truly love one another, they shine a light so vast and bright that it heals the people around them. Homes where families like this exist are like beacons. They radiate love, and that love goes wide… wider than people realise. It heals all those who live in close proximity to that family. This is why there is such emphasis on loving, committed marriage. It is not just for the benefit of the people involved, but for those who live around them also. Secret and hidden, this is one of the most important wonders of love.

I Know What a Gift You Are

I know what a gift you are

I Know What a Gift You Are

You are my very own, one most perfectly matched partner. You are everything I always hoped for…. my secret dream that swept me off my feet and really did come true.

You have the warmth of the morning sun in your spirit, and you have a gentle soul that I always want to be close to, yet you also have the strength of a warrior whom I know will protect me when it’s needed. I deeply, dearly, and happily love you!

I can barely begin to tell you how much I value the exquisite closeness that we have been given. It is a truly beautiful blessing.

There will never be a day when I will take even one moment of that joy and that sweetness for granted. I know what a gift you are – to me and to the world. Continue reading

A Lasting Reminder

A Lasting Reminder of How Much I Love You

A Lasting Reminder of How Much I Love You

I know that I say “I love you!” lots of times, but it’s usually as I’m walking out the door and running late for whatever is on the calendar.

But today, maybe I can slow time down a little bit… and tell you how precious that love really is and how much you mean to me. My heart is so grateful for you – for the bond that we share, the hopes that we have, and the many things that we’ve been blessed with.

I consider the day I fell in love with you – and the moment I knew that you loved me, too – to be the best day my world has ever known. Continue reading

I want to be someone whom you can trust with absolutely everything: every feeling that you want to share, every hope and worry, every joy, every sorrow. I want to be the one individual in the universe that you know you can always turn to. Continue reading

If You Could See Yourself

If you could see Yourself reflected in my eyes

If You Could See Yourself Reflected in My Eyes

If you could see yourself reflected in my eyes, you would see someone who makes my heart just smile inside, you would catch a glimpse of somebody who has been such a wonderful influence on my life and who keeps on making a beautiful difference in my days.

If you could hear the words that I would love to share, you would be able to listen to a special tribute to you, one that sings your praises and speaks of an unending gratitude and describes how much I’ll always appreciate you.

If you could imagine one of the nicest gifts that anyone could ever receive, you would begin to understand what your presence in my life has meant to me.

I wish that you could see in yourself what I see in you. You don’t seem to realise just how strong you are, and what your support means to me. If only you could put yourself into my shoes for a day and experience what it’s like to feel uplifted by your words and embraced by your love, never again would you doubt yourself or feel unworthy, for you are so very, very worthy and you most certainly deserve all of the love that I give you, without a doubt.

We are two strong, independent individuals on our own, but together we are so very much more.
