A is for ABSENCE

A2Z-BADGE-0002015-LifeisGood-230_zps660c38a0It’s April! Time for the A to Z Blog Challenge. Each day through April (except Sundays) we’re writing a blog post to the Letter of the Day. The 1st is ‘A’, the 2nd is ‘B’ … and so on until we get to ‘Z’.

Some of the participating blogs have themes – and some don’t. Naturally, Chrys N. Jay’s theme is Love and Romance. Stop back by tomorrow to see what we added. Or, better yet, follow us and the post will go directly to your inbox. And don’t worry, after April is over Chrys N. Jay goes back to the once a week schedule, so your inbox won’t explode.

We’re on Facebook too! https://www.facebook.com/pages/Chrys-N-Jay-romance-author/1634091186816645?ref=aymt_homepage_panel

absenceA: ABSENCE

Absence diminishes small loves and increases great ones, as the wind blows out the candle and fans the bonfire. ~François VI de la Rochefoucault

Maybe the common phrase is true – absence makes the heart grow fonder.

Do you want to add a little spice to that absence? If you have to travel, leave your partner a bouquet of roses; one for each day you’ll be away. Attach a note that says something along the lines of “These five roses represent the five days I’ll be away from you. They also symbolize the love, joy, laughter and commitment we share together. Counting the days until I return.”

What do you think? Do you agree that absence can both diminish and increase a love?

  1. Yes absence does make the heart grow fonder, sometimes we have to “lose” what we love to make us appreciate what we have. I know it always works for my family.


  2. Wow! That’s a sweet and romantic idea you got there. Surely Conveys the message of love. Agree, absence actually draws the line between what’s real and deep and that which is superficial and fleeting. Good luck on the A to Z challenge! 🙂
