I have a cold on top of my strep (I accidentally wrote "stress" first), but Nate had the day off due to having strep too, and I snuggled with him literally from 9:30 to 3:00 on the couch while we watched movies. It was like a slice of Saturday mid-week. Or a slice of heaven. He is the snuggliest person I have ever met. I feel like I won the lottery. My oxytocin levels have got to be 1000x higher than two years ago just from having his arms around me all the time.
And here is John. A person should always offer a prayer of graciousness for the love that has awakened in them. When you feel love for your beloved and his or her love for you, now and again you should offer the warmth of your love as a blessing for those who are damaged and unloved. Send that love out into the world to people who are desperate; to those who are starving; to those who are trapped in prison; in hospitals and all the brutal terrains of bleak and tormented lives. When you send that love out from the bountifulness of your own love, it reaches other people. This love is the deepest power of prayer.
