To Love And…

I remember a girlfriend asking me one day ‘What do you want out of life?”  We are sitting at an exquisite restaurant, very expensive. She’s a connoisseur of fine cuisine. I look to her for where to meet and eat. Her life experiences give her wisdom and a willingness to listen. I thought over this question she posed to me.

My answer came quickly.  In my heart and in my prayers there has always been a deep longing. I said to her,  “To love and to be loved.”
