Love Is Really Spelled Time

The full quote from religious leader, Dieter F Uchtdorf is, 'In family relationships
, love is really spelled t-i-m-e'. However, I think the shortened version which I chose as the title is pretty accurate. Whether we are talking about love within family relationships, for a significant other, a friend or even our pets, we need to spend time
together to strengthen the bonds of love.
Not only do we need to spend time together but we need to give our undivided attention
. If we are talking we need to be concentrating, not playing with a mobile, reading the paper, watching the TV or doing something online. Unless the activity is part of the conversation and we are sharing it.
Life can be one big rush these days and many could come under the category of NETTEL (Not Enough Time To Enjoy Life).
One of the characteristics of belonging to this group is not spending much time with those you love.

A friend came around this morning and over a cuppa we covered many topics.
During our conversation we talked about selling things on Gumtree, the price of a TV, how vibrant a couple of older people we had encountered are, food choices, furniture, travel and several other topics.

Spending time with those you love has numerous health benefits and strengthens the bond of love. We all need to love and feel loved but it requires an input of time.
