Our Love Story, separated by COVID-19 border closures

This Love Story is for all couples and lovers who have found themselves separated by COVID-19. I pray our Love Story offers inspiration and hope for other during these troubling times.

We have been apart for over five months, the Guatemala Borders closed stranding my love in Arizona, and yes, I am in Guatemala.

Our only lifeline has been Whats App; we speak daily for hours, cook together, and talk about hope of a time together. Tuck each other in at night and speak the first thing each morning.

We have down days, missing each other, both lonely at times; I am sure millions of others around the world feel alone?

How we kept our love alive is talking, Whats App is not the same as being together, holding each other, taking walks and holding hands. For now, this is all we have.

Our love actually has grown stronger through this, each offer the other support, kindness, and love; we remind each other that in time we will be together.

Border remain closed, multiple times airline tickets booked then cancelled. Disappointing each time this occurs, we pick each other up and keep going.

For Heather my love, we will be together soon. Thank you for loving me.

If you have a love story to share, we would love to hear from Lovers around the world.
