I’m hard to love so the devil does. He’s sweeter than sin and takes care of my soul. I can count on him to be there because he always keeps his promises. He helps me let go of my worries an…

Am the sea
Is the horizon
That unites us

Today I am sharing an older post. These few quotes on the subject of human relationships, need deep thought and pondering.
Value of human relationships.
This anonymous quote has said the whole truth about human relationships in a few succinct words. I don’t think we can go wrong if we follow these standards.

Moods swing her like a yo yo
one moment euphoric and high as a kite
but the very next minute insecure and fearful
one day life feels like an extended vacation

leaves her breathless and bewildered
running on low esteem and raging emotions
standing in front of the mirror
looking critically at her stretch marks and bulging belly

Your devotion is steadfast?
It would be impossible for you
To break my heart, to forsake my love
The care you take to never poison our love
Will be the hallmark of your attachment
I would have believed you, I’d really have
If I hadn’t found the pictures from the last vacation
Plastered all over your Facebook page
Posing with a new girl every day
How quickly you change your affections
No one holding your interest for long
Won’t I be a fool to take all your declarations of love
At their face value, as if I was born just yesterday!

Hercule Poirot (John Malkovich), movie quote from ABC Murders (Agatha Christie), 2019. Screen writer: Sarah Phelps
May all of your days be filled with love and laughter
for what is important in life is the lesson of love
for without it, nothing else matters
with it, all things good matter.
Thanks for all the love you give for it grows and grows until that is all there is. hugs to each of you, pat
