is cranky and grumpy and hard to love? Guess what? They need it the most. Somewhere along the way that grump turned on a coping mechanism that made them avoid feelings of love. We all have our own experiences that are ours alone. It is what makes us, us. No one can know what we've been through and how it has shaped us. All we know is ourselves. So love really begins there. Within yourself. Be kind to yourself and then get out there and be kind to others.
The beautiful couple in the photo are my parents. I hope one day to share their love story as well as the stories of both sets of my grandparents. And possibly my favorite love story, mine.
