With each passing year, I appreciate my marriage to my husband more and more. In talking with my writing friends, we began talking about the joys of “everyday” normal life (after Covid). When the world is shaken and everything turns topsy turvy, taking stock of the normal, everyday, run-of-the-mill things often brings peace and comfort. I think we can all safely say that everyday love is something special. That’s why I wrote this poem about everyday love.
We live in a microwave, Wi-Fi hotspot culture. We want it now; we want it fast; we want it yesterday. Thanks to many technological advances like the Internet, smartphones, Netflix, and yes, even the microwave from the 80s, most everyone, including me, has lost patience for the process of many aspects of life that just can’t be rushed.
Sometimes companies and corporations, banks and businesses– but this is when two come together for hope and love and life and gift.
