why do we fall in love?

heart light

I was speaking with a friend about a new couple we both know when she said, “She shouldn’t be with him! He has nothing!”

When your heart is only open to material things, it will remain closed to everything else.

When my husband and I met, neither of us “had anything”, but we fell in love and we built a life together. That was over 20 years ago.

Love is not about what a person “has“, it’s about who that person is and what that person means to us. But more importantly, love is about who we are on the inside when we meet them.

    I had more issues than assets when my husband and I married. Thank goodness he isn’t material. 🙂

    If a potential partner possesses integrity, compassion, honesty, confidence, kindness, and a sincere, caring heart, he can show up with a knapsack on his back for all I care. 😉
