LEARN TO LOVE ME ASSEMBLE THE WAYS – a line from a very brillant song.
Its true sometimes we can’t just love someone – love isn’t easy – and sometimes we just need to learn how to truly love the people we were put here to love.
I have joined the Oprah game way late – holy moly. It used to drive me crazy that people taped her and lived by everything she said now I know why they do. She is awesome!
Tonight she had the Judds on and wow it hit a spot. Watch this episode — it talks about Self – Love, betrayal, loving others and your heart.
Open your heart and let Love in – it can make your life fuller!
Listen this song – it is beautiful – it is about opening your heart.
