The Gods Both Old and New
The older I get the more I realize that religion and spirituality are easier to hold onto when you've been down in the trenches and have made it to the other side. I mean, the whole entire premise of "preaching" is to deliver testimonies and make believers out of non-believers, right? They have to believe that no matter how bad things get, there is a higher power that has a bigger plan for you and will bring you to the other side.
Love in Theory
As I've gotten nice and comfortable in my 30s, I've decided to change the way I give and receive love. I'm a giver. I'm the kind of friend, mother and wife who will bend over backwards for the people I care about. I drop off forgotten lunches and invite friends over for wine when they're going through something. I do the little things that make life easier and more comfortable for those around me. If you know anything about the five love languages, you would be correct in assuming mine is Acts of Service. I've heard that we all show love in the way in which we wish to receive it, which makes sense and it's why I do the things I do.

There are people who buy wine glasses with quirky sayings about their favorite blush. Then, dear readers, there are parents. Parents don't care about the specifics. Parents don't care about whether its supposed to be cold or room temperature. Just pour. It. In. A. Glass. Or don't. We're flexible.
