What True Love Looks Like to Me

Here are three of my very favorite presents given to me by AdventureMan. I like diamonds just fine, and at the same time, I really am not a diamonds kind of girl. I worry about losing things like that. I’m hard on watches, I do things with my hands and I break things. Better for me are gifts I don’t have to worry too much about breaking, losing, burning, misplacing . . . all the things that break my heart about earthly treasures.

Every time I look at these things, I see love. These are presents that protect me, that might help me help someone else at just the right time. You probably recognize two of the items, the third is a wind-up flashlight, so that I never need to worry about batteries failing – when the light begins to dim, you just crank away.

Actually, I am going to share two photos, because while the first one is the one I had planned:

This is the one that happened first, and it made me laugh because it also is about true love:

AdventureMan knows what will make me feel safe. It may not look romantic to you, but it looks like true love to me.

Here is today’s challenge. Grab your camera – or your keyboard – and show us / tell us what true love looks like to you?

  6. Folks – true love COULD be your Mom’s machboos, your dad supporting your ambition in some way . . . . the point of this post is that TRUE love in your life may look different from “love” in TV, movies, etc . . .

    Chiki! I’ve seen a whole table of your Momma’s love!

    Fast Lane – You just need to think about it . .. it’s there.

    Fonzy – AdventureMan knows me better! I don’t carry a gun – as you saw in the “centimeter’s post, I don’t want to be tempted to use it!

    Joel – I imagine you are going to fine several good ideas 🙂

    Rainmountain – I love it, too!
