A Weekend of Love

Is not about buying power...

This morning I was listening to a mediation on love. The message...

Life is Love. Love is Life.

The greatest force in the universe is free. You can give it with a kind word to a stranger, share it by spending time with those you care about, and receive it by doing something that feeds your passion.

"Love is life. And if you miss love, you miss life."

Leo Buscaglia

"Love is not about what we get, but what we give. Love can bring the greatest joy, a thousand tears and the most painful heartaches. But love is so worth the pain and something you do not want to miss in your life. At the end of the day, with all the success in the world, if you don’t have love, what do you have? If you haven’t loved until it hurts, you have not lived. One of the secrets of success is...."
 To read that secret and more... you must read Flight To Success Be The Captain of Your Life

Happy Valentines Day Weekend! 

I'm going to be home on call, sitting reserve (unless someone calls in sick). I'll call that the love-sick call. For me... warm house in a wet city, love songs on the stereo while I'm doing homework, a game of scrabble at the end of the day followed by a bubble bath. Simple but filled with love. It's not about the stuff, but the joy.
Homework will be spent on something in my PhD program, working toward reducing the 1500-hour total time requirement for the love of flight. Stay tuned!

How will you spend your weekend? 
Enjoy the Journey!

  1. Karlene, mother nature loves us so much here in the Great Lakes that we are now under a Severe Winter Storm warning for GRR/Kent County and others. So, with that people will want to love to stay indoors with their favorite loved ones or favorite book on this Valentine's Day. I am happy to say that my "Flight to Success" has just arrived in time! So... I will be spending time with that book all night tonight and into tomorrow afternoon for sure.

    The scented candles are still glowing. The "Flight to Success" is a no smoking flight.

    Have a great weekend and HAPPY VALENTINE's DAY!!!
