Boston Terrier (Listen while you read)
It might seem crude. I don’t mean to be rude. It’s just that ‘love’ has forsaken me!
(Oh, poor little thing. Why do you cry? Why do you tear? Why do you fear? And why do you think that love has forsaken you?
Indeed, there are times when we can think this way.
Indeed, there are many who feel this way often; are there not? Indeed, this is true.
Many believe that love does not exist. Many, who are otherwise worldly and knowing, believe that love is ‘for the birds’. That is to say, my dear friends, they scoff at love.
For those, comes a rude awakening when love enters the playing field. For love will enter, my friend, when you are least expecting it. To be sure, some may have to wait and wait and wait for many a year for love to come a nesting; this is true. However, for those who have the patience, it does, and it will come.
For those ‘non-believers’ we say: Allow the truth to unfold, dear heart.
Do not put obstacles in its way. This can, and does prevent the appearance of love from blooming in your garden.
Do not scoff at love, dear friend. Know that love awaits.
It may be disguised and hard to see.
This is the beauty of love, my friend; it does not always wear its heart on its sleeve.)

Yay! I love your reflections Carolyn. And such a little puppy! Wow, I’ve never seen one so tiny. Lovely hopeful post. I’ll read it to my daughter today.
Yes, Yaz; hopeful indeed…!
He is a gorgeous puppy, to be sure… 😉
you are right about love..and a very sweet photo..a very tiny terrier…
He is indeed a tiny one; just born I believe…! 🙂
So sweet xx
Sweet indeed, Michelle…. And you would know… 😉
Nice reflection and cute pic!
Thank You, Joe…. Just as cute as a boot..! 😉
A lovely reflection and what a lovely speaking voice you have.
I had to look twice Jamie… That’s a lovely new pic (gravitar) of you… Quite handsome indeed..! (As you know that’s old world language for a well balanced good looking gal…!)
Thank You and Thank You….! 🙂
… yes, I think we are of a generation.
Thanks for the kind complement.
to non-belivers – let love get the benefit of the doubt, ’cause it’s worth it ❤ I could not live without all the love that I get from the people around me 🙂
That is because you are an open book, Cecilie… An optimist and an adventurer…!
Unfortunately, not everyone has the ability to let love in, or even recognise it…! This is sad, but true…
wow – that’s really sad. Can’t imagine a life like that. I would love to learn more about this people… Sounds interesting 😉
Hopefully I’ll be inspired to do a post about such things… Yes, very sad indeed…!
Would make things maybe slightly better if it was not so heavily disguised!!
Indeed…! At times it can be a troubling thing, for sure. At other times, it is because love’s store is not ready to open, and sometimes it can ‘turn away’ due to misconceptions. Maybe there is also the possibility that love, although wanted, is a scary affair… A heart that is not ready to allow love will sometimes force love away by not letting it in.. So many reasons why love does not always ‘play the game’… The final reason why love is not playing is because there is a season for all things. In the meantime, a look at our own heart and allowing it to heal can be a rewarding pastime…..
True words Carol.
Made my day… 🙂
So pleased, Jackie…. Thank You… 🙂
What a nice post Carolyn. Thanks for sharing. Wally
And Thank You, Wally… Your visits bring a smile and a dash of light….!
Never saw such a tiny puppy. Enjoyed the reflections!
How gorgeous it is.. I couldn’t resist..! 😉
love that puppy and love the post. 🙂
Thank You, Sharmishtha… That puppy is too cute; I love it tooooooo.. 🙂
What beautiful reflections — and what a beautiful heart you have. I’m so glad you came to visit me and lead me back here. Blessings.
Thank You, Louise; that’s a lovely thing to say..!
I’m glad I found you for the same reason… 🙂
Right! The best things happen when we least expect it, including love!
Indeed… It can happen with a jolt that leaves one speechless, and a little scared to boot…!
Love keeps me going in life. It is my soul food. Thank you for this reflection Carolyn, and may the nay-sayers all have a taste of love’s banquet.
Yes, Resa; soul food indeed…. Well said, my beautiful friend… xoxoxo
That pic is something else, Carolyn. Thanks for sharing.
Yep; gorgeous, my dear Hook… 😉
Isn’t this true of so many good things in life, they appear when we stop reaching so much for them and just be? Thanks for the great post Carolyn.
So true, LuAnn… You are indeed, a wise woman…! 😉
Yes love does exist. It’s so nice when it comes. I spent my whole life being in love with love that now I’m quite cynical. 🙂
Exist it does. It’s easy to spot when one sees it, and we can’t be fooled by pretenders…
I guess that’s one of the benefits of age, Kim… Maybe your cynicism is more a case of seeing the reality of life today, with all the benefits of hindsight..!
Wonderful reflection, Carolyn. For me, love has always come as you said – when I least expected it. If I looked for it, it eluded me. If I tried to force it, it was broken.
Thank You, Maddie… Yes, that seems to be the way of love.! It is not something over which we have control. It can certainly make us assume a humble position…!
Poor little baby dog! I always feel sorry for the ones with the squashed noses. Upbeat as always! But love doesn’t always come calling. Still, one can always hope. As someone I used to know pointed out, there’s one thing worse than not being shacked up with anyone, and that’s being shacked up with someone you don’t like.
Yes, Rose, this little squashed nosed puppy sure is cute..! Talking about squashed noses; have you seen the Shih Tzu… Two were mine, one black, one white… Ahhhh, memories..!
“there’s one thing worse than not being shacked up with anyone, and that’s being shacked up with someone you don’t like.”
No truer words spoken, Rose…. Hear, hear…! Been there, done that… Ug..!
“Better no company than the wrong company” was a saying an old friend used to say… Think he was also right…! 😉
