True Love

How you ever really thought about what love is? What it really is? Not that mushy stuff you see on TV, or the 'love' that some teenagers talk about all the time, but real, genuine, love.

I've thought about it. I did while mowing the lawn this morning. Here's my conclusion:

Love is like joyful giving.
Love is when you everything you can to make that one person smile; going out of your way to make their day.
Love is also finding someone who makes you smile on your worst days.
Love is finding someone who brings the best out in you.
Love is to make someone shine.
Love is a two person game, and if played right, it last forever.
Love is treating them with respect.
Love is supporting their dreams.
Love is holding them while they cry, and telling them everything is going to be okay.
Love is telling them when they're right, and when they're wrong.
Love is just being able to be together, doing nothing besides sitting there, and enjoying every second of it.
Love is helping the other person on their way, and pulling them back when they stray.
Love is caring for someone and accepting them despite their past.
Love is when you can be completely yourself and not be afraid of being judged.
Love is teasing someone, and both laughing.
Love is knowing when somethings wrong before they've even said a word.
Love is loyal. 
Love is sweet.
Love is pure.
Love is patient.
Love is kind
Love is not boastful.
Love is not proud.
Love is not envious.
Love is not rude.
Love is not self seeking.
Love is not easily angered.
Love is not delight in evil.
Love rejoices in the truth.
Love protects.
Love trusts.
Love hopes.
Love preservers.

Love is more than what the world tells us, yet love is a lot simpler, too. It isn't this big glamorous thing that comes and sweeps you off your feet and carries you into the sun set, but it is something magical.

  1. I like it. It's a good way to think about it. And I like that you said "Love is teasing someone and both laughing." That shows me how much love I have in my life in a way I never thought of it before.
