Robert Fulghum: True Love

This was a fantastic book full of tiny stories about love. Young love, old love, new love and remembered love. It shows the joy of love realized, and the sorrow of love lost.

Some of the best stories in this book include the man who wanted to find an old childhood sweetheart after 15 years apart and a failed marriage on his part. Being unable to locate her he despairs of ever rekindling that fire, when he stumbles upon her on the Washington freeway, stuck in gridlock in the car next to him. Another favorite is the man who shares a simple letter written by his wife of 25+ years. The letter states simply, “I hate you, I hate you, I hate you. Love Margaret”

Sometimes love is an enduring flame of decades. Other times it is as simple as the handsome man or beautiful woman who smiles at you as they drive by. From this, memories are made and cherished for a lifetime. And we are all richer for it.

This was a wonderful read that I highly recommend to anyone who has ever felt love, or who ever wants to feel love. Because if you love, this book is for you.
