There is a four letter word that over the past 27 1/2 years of my life I have wrestled with. From the day I was conceived this word struck a chord with my soul, enticing me to a need to have fulfilled the ultimate mandate of my heart. In spite of all the counterfeits it had always been there, but my lack of familiarity with this word would take me on a journey to find it. This blog is my open book encounter with LOVE. Real LOVE. Not the concept of it or the false appearance of it, fabricated by fairy tales and fantasy.
