All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.
~Charles M. Schulz

[This continues on an idea that began in the Love post]

Our ability to derive satisfaction and happiness depends on our skills as gathering piecing together our patchwork quilt. Consciously or not, we are constantly assessing if a particular relationship – or patch—fits well into our needs, the gaps in our quilt. The patches shift over time, the particular person who fills that unique spot may change, but there is always a place for that need.

It is a wonder – and a unique feature—of human nature that we have the need for interpersonal warmth. Regardless of where we are and who we are, it is reassuring to sense that each of us is covered by a quilt of love and friendship.

  5. Good thought. It’s cool to think of the people that patch our quilts.

  6. So true. When I’m feeling well-loved and appreciated I can handle almost anything life throws at me. But if I’ve had a misunderstanding with someone close to me or disappointed them in some way, the littlest thing can crush me.

    We are especially thankful when old, comforting friendships are rekindled after years of separation. The friendship patch may fade over time but it continues to hold its place and embrace us with warm memories of loving support. When we are reunited, the patch brightens with new colors and details as relationships resume.
