Greater love hath no man than this...
The day her divorce was final marked the day she gave up on love~0~
"I will NEVER fall in love again.~1~ I won't be hurt a second time!"~2~
Day in and day out Love stood and knocked on the door of her heart...~3~
Her resolve wavered, lower lip quivering.~4~ Snap decision-~5~
"I said I will never fall in love again!" And she stubbornly turned love away.~6~

But Love was persistent and tried to remind her of all the good times:~7~
Breathing in gentle water, safe and sound warm and cozy under Mother's heart~8~
Into the world and all its splendor- a soft caress, a murmured sigh, the wet rasp of a puppy's tongue against a fat cheek...~9~ bumblebees and lazy summer days on her tire swing..~10~ to no avail. Then...

A quickening she NEVER expected to feel, unbelievable movement, indescribable joy delineated in one dark blue line... a connection established...

Love... breathing in gentle water, safe and sound, warm and cozy under Mother's heart...

And love is born again
