What engages the heart of a woman?
Relationships do. You already know this.
Some relationships can be wonderful, others awful – but the truth is this.
Relationships are all there is.
Everything else is just stuff.
And stuff does not last.
My (Melissa’s) close friend Nita once said that relationships are the best and the worst things that happen to us. Whatever takes us to the heights of joy and the depths of sorrow most often has to do with relationships: the birth of a child or grandchild, the loss of a spouse or friend. The gains, losses, troubles, and triumphs bound up in relationships engage the heart of a woman like nothing else has the power to do.
