True Love Triumphs in any fight!

From my experience, it sometimes takes patience, quiet faith, intimate trust, unconditional love, internal drive/determination and an open, honest awareness of the situation at hand - but the power of love does triumph in the end.

Duncan and I have been reading 365 Days of Sensational Sex together on the bus ride to work every morning. Always enlightening (you can never know enough can you?); today some of Paget's words touched a familiar chord within me. When something is worth fighting for, you do, just because it is.

In Her words:

"There is a bravery and a spirit in fighting for what you want and that spirit often wins the 'war' for Great Lovers. As Marlo Thomas said, "You can't be brave if you've only had wonderful things happen to you." Great Lovers know the world won't always be great, but they have an indomitable spirit and courage and will fight for their hearts and their relationships."

Sometimes, the fight just wins itself - given time, space, emotional intelligence and a lot of heart. That is the power of a true and trusting love. And it is beautiful, living thing.
