Everything I Never Told You

In honor of suck up to your love day which happens tomorrow, I give you a list. You’d rather have jewlery? Same!

Things I’ve Learned From Relationships

1. Always be yourself if you can’t be who you are with your partner, what’s the point? If you feel you have to be something you’re not to gain your significant other’s affection then this is a huge red flag

For me that means being my awkward, weird and random self.

2. You deserve to be appreciated and treated well. Never be anyone’s afterthought, second choice, or stand in. You are amazing and should be treated as such

Seriously, do not put up with neglect. Ani’t nobody got time for that.

3. Love isn’t like the movies, at least after the endrpohins wear off. Love is a choice. It’s an action. If you base your relationship on feelings, you’ll end up being disappointed…

Discovering Your Happiness

Hello loves ❤


Below are some great examples to show the world that she is yours ❤

  1. Leave her something in a public place.

Maybe this is a note on the windshield of her car, a bouquet of flowers at her work, a special message taped or written on her bathroom mirror. This doesn’t have to be grand, but it’s thoughtful, sweet, and shows everyone around her that she’s loved.

  1. Hold her hand in public.

Some sort of intimate contact—whether that’s pulling her closer, grabbing her hand, or putting your arm around her shoulders—claims her as yours. You’re not only making her feel comforted and cared for, but you’re expressing your love in a physical way.

The Day After Her Funeral

Submitted by Jerry Brotherton

We emptied her room today
Faded photos of a mother
Holding children whose faces
That we can barely recall

We emptied her closet today
Clothes from summers and winters
Too long ago to remember
Now just charity donations

We emptied her life today
Forgotten pieces and fragments
Tucked neatly into drawers
Given to her by…who knows

We cried for her today
Heads on shoulders
Arms holding each other
In fear we will not remember

We promised to save her love today
Tucked it deep into our hearts
Where the tears could not find it
To wash it away

We said goodbye to her today.

We said goodbye to her today
