The Hit List - Never in love

“I’ve never been in love,” she said wistfully.

“What about your husband? You seemed to be smitten.” 

A small smile crept into the corners of her mouth. “Nope. I never felt that with him. There were moments of joy but I’ve never been in love.” 

Yes, you have been in love.

The first time you opened your eyes.

The first time you held your daughter on the pale, golden night when she was born in your home so many winters ago.

The many times you’ve stopped to admire the flowers bursting in your garden.

That time we ate cake in the rain.

Those many moments of silence in the temple where you prayed for your mother’s soul when she died in the middle of the day when you were on a plane going far, far away.

The evenings in front of the fire with your newspaper, coffee, cat in your lap, and not a thing on the to-do list.

You’ve been in love many times. There have been plenty of romantic moments. You just never noticed.
