love is . . .

. . . a yearly, monthly, daily, hourly, constant choice.

. . . putting someone else first.

. . . letting someone else have the first bite . . . and the last.

. . . needing to be kind more than needing to be right.

. . . warm hugs.

. . . a porch swing.

. . . not hanging up.

. . . biting your tongue.

. . . patient.

. . . a hot bath at the end of a long day.

. . . knowing when someone needs a break.

. . . wanting the other person to be happy more than is logical.

. . . making a dinner that you know will be enjoyed – even if it’s not necessarily what you wanted yourself.

. . . sacrificial.

. . . choosing what is better.

. . . worth everything you give and everything you give up . . . and more.

. . . not blind.

. . . constantly growing, constantly expanding, constantly pursuing.

. . . getting up in the middle of the night to get someone a glass of water.

. . . forgiving.

. . . snuggling on the couch on Saturday morning.

. . . getting up early to go walking together.

. . . not giving up.

. . . strengthening each other . . . and supporting each other.

. . . unexpected sweetness.

. . . holding hands.

. . . putting cream in the grits.

. . . not needing cream in the grits.

. . . strawberry cake.

. . . knowing when to let someone cry . . . and when to cheer them up.

. . . to have and to hold.

. . . beautiful.

Love IS.
