Watercolor depicts an hourglass and building blocks signifying "LOVE EQUALS TIME"

LOVE EQUALS TIME - 1  -  11" x 14"  -  transparent watercolor


Love equals the amount of time you desire to spend with someone. 

It’s been so long since I’ve posted. And I assure you, it’s not because I don’t want to spend time with you! Storms of life, metaphorically speaking, have tried to topple our boat recently and we’ve been scrambling to keep it upright. But that's a story for another time!

Years ago, when our children were little, my husband and I attended a marriage event with two other couples. There were games, music, a gourmet meal, and a keynote speaker. Each couple was given a tiny hourglass to help us remember the key point of the event: Love means spending time together. You can tell how much someone cares by the amount of time they want to spend together.

…doesn’t matter if you are lovers, friends, parents & children, or in-laws. Someone once said that the greatest insult is to be ignored. I think that’s true.

My husband and I have long since misplaced our tiny hourglass, so I painted these paintings as a reminder.
