There's nothing quite like being in love. My guest, Connection Messenger* Annette Petrick shares some personal reflections on her own realization that when you love and are loved—at any age—life is sweeter. Use the audio player above to listen to this 90-second show.

This story came together on an afternoon of musing. I had set time aside to conceive and write the next twenty Consider This shows. As it so often does, the subject of LOVE entered my mind. It began by considering the loves in my own life, savoring them, relishing them, smiling about them.

Then it occurred to me how many other couples Bill and I know and have met who are equally in love, and have been, for a long time. Then I envisioned a world full of people – different languages, different colors, different sizes – but all having this overwhelmingly positive condition of loving and being loved. Millions of us. How CAN the world be in such sorry shape, when there are so may of us who love and are loved?

This is the story that emerged from those musings.

Thanks much.
