What is Love?

What is love? The answer comes to each of us in many different ways.

If we were to believe what we see on TV it would be a grand gesture of a spectacular gift of diamonds, flowers and chocolates all tied up in a pretty package.

Having been in love with the same man for over 44 years I know what love is in it’s truest form.

Love is not the grand gestures as mentioned above , but it is the simple everyday things, the unspoken words, the little glance accompanied by a sweet grin and a twinkle in his blue eyes.

He shows me love every time he gets up from the table and does the dishes just because he knows I am a bit tired.

He shows me love when he goes to the grocery store because he knows I hate grocery shopping.

He shows me love when I get in my car and I notice it has been washed and polished and filled up with gas.

He shows me love when he goes to sleep in the other room because I am not sleeping well and  he does not want to disturb me because I  finally fell asleep.

He shows me love when he goes across town to buy the special humus I love even though he is not really sure what humus is.

He shows me love when after watching a sweet love story like the,”Notebook.” We sat in our seats until the theatre was empty, stood up to leave, took one look at each other and both started crying. You see, He is my Home!!!

He shows me he loves me when he paints a room three times to get the perfect green, just for me.

He shows me love when he does all of these things and never mentions that he did them, he does not want accolades or anything in return, he just does these things because he loves me.

He loves me unselfishly and unconditionally. He loves me in the truest sense of the word. He is forever my love forever my valentine.

Happy Valentines Day to the Love of My Life!!
