“You haven’t found love recently?” she asked.
My gut response, “No.”
Upon reflection, that answer warrants explanation.
I’ve always known love. It was never lost.
From childhood my parents were there, supportive of any endeavor and quick to offer guidance. In school I developed friendships that still stand. Though we have taken very different paths in life, we can agree on the basic tenet: I really care about your well-being. This continued through college, into the workplace and to this day.
Perhaps I bandy about the term ‘love’ too loosely, but to me, it’s a simple matter of compassion and personal interest.
It is simply there.
