The Best Of Me

Love…
…shows clearly in how comfortable I am with you. Never do I wish to be anything but the “me” I truly am. The open acceptance I feel from you strengthens my confidence and belief in myself. It brings out the best of me.

Nineteenth Century American novelist Louisa May Alcott
Love is a flower
that grows in any soil,
works its sweet miracles
undaunted by autumn frost
or winter snow,
blooming fair
and fragrant all the year,
and blessing those who give
and those who receive.
