Pals for life

The Friday Five for September 30, 2016

Today's The Friday Five is brought to us by deani, the letter F, and the number 5.


1. Who in your life do you love? Be specific.
2. What do you think society today thinks love is?
3. How has the media affected your idea of what love is?
4. How has religion affected it? If you aren't religious, how did you interpret love?
5. How do you know that you've found the one?


1. my husband, my son, my sister, my cats and my friends, with varying degrees. I won't be any more specific than that.
2. Love is deeply personal and different for everyone. Some people never find it and there are an unlucky few who have it, but don't know it. I wouldn't even be able to begin to hazard a guess as to what society thinks about it.
3. Not really. I love my Big Guy for what he is, not for what the media tells me he should be.
4. How has religion affected my love? It hasn't.
5. I've been with him for forty years. There's still no one else I'd rather be with and him me. We are still best friends and spend all our free time together. We've never been on separate vacations or even a night out without the other. I'd do anything he asked of me and vice verse. He is my strength, my support, my biggest fan and my harshest critic. What do you think? Have I found the one?
