Love doesn't just sit there, like a stone, it has to be made, like bread, re-made all the time, made new.
—Ursula K. Le Guin
THE LOVE NOTE
You are the Maker of Yummy Things. Every day you make our meals and our treats—the food that nourishes not only our bodies but also our souls. You make the stuff we need and want. You are a creator, a maker. I say frequently, "This is the best ________ you've ever made." And it's always true.
THE GREAT RELATIONSHIP PRINCIPLE
Make and Remake Love. Bread nourishes. It keeps us alive. We make it and it makes us. This making is never completed, though. It must be made and remade. Love, too, is never done. It is a combination of ongoing work and ongoing enjoyment.
Consider the story of The Little Red Hen: Everyone in the story wanted the tasty results but none were willing to do the all the work required to help the hen make the bread. It is the same with relationship work. Everyone wants the GREAT Relationship, but few are willing to do the work required for the results. Be willing to do the work to get the results. Bon appetit!
