Lost Love

I left my daughter's cactus plant with my sister when it was time to depart California.  Bad move.  I didn't realize how precious this foot-long porcupine was to her.  I should have known better.  My daughter nurtured her pet cactus for years and gave it tender loving care.  I made room for her little buddy in my back seat when I returned to pick up our other car.

Every day, the cactus droops and shrivels without my daughter to give it what it needs to thrive.  It may not survive away from the desert climate it was born in.  It reminds me what happens when love fades.  Here are some warning signs:
  1. There is a feeling of abandonment.  This usually happens when your lover doesn't hear you speaking his or her favorite love language.
  2. Lack of sunshine.  When the shades are drawn on hopes and dreams, love is no longer in the air.
  3. Outside priorities fill your calendar.
  4. Valentine's Day is just another day.
  5. You feel like your best days are in the rear view mirror.
If any of these signs are showing up in your life, you need to re-write the script you are following.  Learn what the love of your life needs.  Open up the windows and let the sun shine in.  Stop looking at the past and concentrate on today.  Make sure to learn a few new words in your lover's love language every morning when you wake up.  The only way to become fluent is to practice.  And pay attention to all the things that matter to the ones you love, even if they happen to be twelve inch pricks.
