A Very Tasty True Love Recipe

Love is the food of the soul and we are diminished if we starve ourselves. Conversely  we can be the best we can be when nourished by it.

In this ever changing world one thing never changes – the need to love and be loved.

Some people are fortunate enough to have their favourite true love recipe handed down from their parents. This is especially true if they have been part of a loving and nurturing family.

I was privileged to be part of such a family although I did not realise it at the time, assuming that everybody’s mother and father shared a warm, loving and nurturing relationship  Now I know better of course and today I’d like to share with you something very precious to me – the true love recipe left to me by my mother and father who were absolutely devoted to one another until the day they died.
