Valentine’s Day is, of course, all about the enjoyment of love. It’s a celebration of the highest of human emotions, the most noble and true.
But love is still more than that. As much as it can elevate us and make us whole, there is a pain peculair to that emotion that is absent in any other. Love has its own set of challenges.
Those challenges are most clearly seen in the story of a college student I spoke with (or rather listened to) last year. Hers was a story that is all too common among men and women of her age and circumstance.
A few weeks ago, I was fortunate enough to visit with her again, to get part two of her unfolding saga. But before I share that with you, I’d like to share the first part. All great stories have a great beginning, and hers is no different.
That chapter one is over at katdish’s blog today. I hope you’ll pop over there to read it. I hope, too, that you’ll agree with me on love’s grand premise–it holds on.
