Meaning of LOVE……

I decided to look up the definition of “love” today…..

1. a profoundly tender, passionate affection for another person.
2. a feeling of warm personal attachment or deep affection, as a parent, child, or friend.
3. a person toward who love is felt; beloved person; sweetheart.
4. used in direct address as a term of endearment, affection……

Love is a risk…..Love is a choice…..Love is enduring…..Love pushes through the hard times….Love rejoices in the good times……Love is forgiving when forgiveness shouldn’t be given…….

When I think of love, I think of the people that I love in my life.  We all have children, a spouse, parents, or friends that we love.  The greatest love is the one that is unconditional….I have often wondered if a human can really be unconditional with their love.  Do we love our children or spouse unconditionally?  I am guilty of not doing this……I pray that I will strive to be that person that loves unconditionally.

I know that I love my children more and more each day…..I love that song by Martina McBride, “In My Daughter’s Eyes”…..My Hannah Kate is teaching me everyday that she loves me unconditionally…to be honest all three of my children show me this type of love….In fact, this morning my little David saw me crying and came over and said, “mommy, I rescue you so you don’t cry.” while he hugged my leg.  That is the type of love that sees me through all of this heartache in this life.  I am blessed to have children that are not perfect, but can see when people are hurting…..I often wonder what they will become in the future and then I have to stay focused on teaching them the things of today…..

“Learn from yesterday, live for today, hope for tomorrow.”
-Albert Einstein

I am looking back and learning but I am hoping for great things for tomorrow……I am going to LOVE my life because there is a story to be told through all of this love and heartache…….. Je t’aime…….
