Who Knew? The Opposite of Love is Not Hate

“The opposite of love isn’t hate,” Counselor Sandy said several months back, “it’s indifference.” Those words have come to mind a few times since the wisdom was imparted. The opposite of love isn’t hate. Indifference isn’t a word I commonly use and since my understanding of the word was simply “to not care,” I couldn’t quite put Sandy’s words into perspective.

Happy Monday, Journeyer! This past week has been filled with family and fireworks, and even a sideshow of the two combined, if you get my drift.

Happy Sunday, Journeyer! I refer to May and June as the hamster-wheel months as so many events are crammed into that sixty-day period, especially when you have active, school-aged children.
