[No. 9] Love Is Selfless

What is love? Love is selfless.

On a majorly grumpy Monday morning,

I choose to love my husband.

On a “throw your hands in the air like you really don’t care” Friday night,

I choose to love my husband.

When we have polar opposite opinions on things (literally as far as the east is from the west),

I choose to love my husband.

What I’m trying to convey is that regardless of situation,

the choice to love that person is up to you.

I’ve heard people say that “the spark just isn’t there anymore” or “we just faded out.”

You know what I say to that?

You were never in love.

Maybe more like infatuation, lust, or even intrigue.

OR

You didn’t realize love meant actual work.

Maybe falling in love is an instant moment,

but staying in love takes effort.

It’s up to you to choose to love them each and every day.

Cheers,
