What is love? Love is knowing them for who they are, reminding them of who they are when they forget or lose their way; love is understanding that all of us fall short sometimes and need second chances; love is not bringing things up that put someone down, but gently leading by example.
Love is making pasta salad even though the mere thought of Miracle Whip/mayonnaise grosses you out beyond belief; love is making that second batch of popcorn just because she wanted more, or cooking breakfast because you know it is her favorite.
Be there for each other through thick and thin because love is showing “I love you” in ways that your partner can hear it. Love is slogging around in the mud so chores get done, lessening the load for your other; love is listening even when you’ve heard it a million times, and speaking empathy even though you are helpless to do anything that will be of use.
to tell the truth, to laugh and to cry, to encourage and to appreciate, to nurture and to dance, to argue and to make-up, to ride alongside while the dust of life billows out behind you.
