Love is not about the big gestures we make on Valentine's Day. It's the small acts of kindness and the everyday generosities. It's the effort we make when we're not feeling our best and the joy we get from doing so. It's the most ordinary moments of our lives that are often the most important.

#225 Dian on 2010-02-15 09:51
“Love is patient; love is kind
and envies no one.
Love is never boastful, nor conceited, nor rude;
never selfish, not quick to take offense.
There is nothing love cannot face;
there is no limit to its faith,
its hope, and endurance.
In a word, there are three things
that last forever: faith, hope, and love;
but the greatest of them all is love.”
Love is my amazing husband who would give his life for myself and his baby girls!!

Love is beautiful. It's knowing that no matter how badly I mess up, I still have the love of a wonderful Savior. It's what I feel when my boyfriend holds me close and I can hear his heart beating so close to mine. It's all the times my mom stayed up with me when I was sick. It's my brother, when he fought in Afghanistan to keep his family safe here, and my sister sharing her lunch with me at work. And no matter how many flowery words we use, love is simply beyond our vocabulary.

Love is... my dogs snuggling around my body when I sleep, giving me doggy kisses when I cry, keeping watch by the window for the moment I come back home.

Love is... my family sending over meals to make sure I'm eating right. Telling me every day that they loved me, even as I went through a stage where I was too proud to say it back. A lifetime of hugs, of I'm-So-Proud-of-You's, of encouragement and laughter. Childhood memories recalled around a fireplace with mugs of hot chocolate in our hands, and affection in our hearts.


Love is... happy that I find myself whole, even without having that other half. Being at peace with myself on Valentine's Day, content with my two little dogs. Knowing that I am worthy of love; receiving it and giving it. Appreciating what I have, and never taking it for granted.
#281 Claudia H. on 2010-02-15 14:19
Love is being able to say or do the most stupid thing and know he'll always be there to laugh with you and remind you of that incident at a later date- and you're ok with that.

Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, ... See More always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails. . .And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. - excerpts from 1 Corinthians 13:4-13

Love is my hubby flying out to see me every weekend

love is forcing yourself out of bed at 6 every morning for years- despite the fact that you didn't fall asleep till 4- to call your daughter, who will probably talk to you with a mixture of annoyance and anger, and end the conversation abruptly. because even though she is rude and thoughtless on the phone she needs to hear your voice before bed or else she cannot sleep

Love is blind.

Seeing past each others faults and looking beyond who they really are.

Being caught up in the feeling of being so comfortable, you don't care how they treat you.

After year after year of being hopelessly in love, you realize you are in a one-sided love and all they care about is your money now.

Love is blind, until you look at all the money emptied out of your bank account.

xo,
ash

#351 donna (Homepage) on 2010-02-16 15:31
Love is... not getting mad about silly little things. Knowing when to pick your battles, because at the end of the end, you want to be with that person, and it would break your heart to not be with them.
#352 Chelsea (Homepage) on 2010-02-16 18:04
Love is ALL YOU NEED!
Love lifts us up where we belong!
All you need is love!
Happy Valentines Day.

And in the end the love you make is equal to the love you take.

sorry, I am a love fanatic, even though the ones I love always seem to leave me:(

#359 Beth on 2010-02-17 09:07
Love is waiting on him to get home, sometimes a month sometimes fifteen months, and knowing that just waiting is better than trying to do anything fun (like watch LOST) without him … love is also knowing he feels the exact same way.

#363 Sarah (Homepage) on 2010-02-18 00:49
Love is a gift. With that in mind, it is given freely and wholeheartedly, with no expectations or limits. It is the courage to risk everything for even just one moment of happiness.

Love is
never wanting to say good bye. wanting to just hug or kiss for that one second more!
it's setting the alarm 5 minuties early just so you can snuggle. it's ordering natchoes at 12:00 at night because your girlfriend just had a craving for them. it's waiting an hour in your car so that she can get her nails done. love is my boyfirend buying me "sex and the city chocolates" ," shoes named "carrie", and all the seasons of sex and the city on dvd..just because he knew i loved it.. love it my boyfriend, who will do anything for me. love is selfless, love is the BEST feeling in the world.

#390 Erin Lazzarini on 2010-02-22 10:02
love is forever and always, no matter what....when you're feeling ugly, when he loses his job, you have to have your kitty put to sleep, the number on the scale is higher than you'd like, when his Grandma passes away, when you're having the most stressful week ever, and somehow they make it all seem bearable and you feel that no matter what happens you will be okay as long as they are there with you to help you through it all. Somehow things seem more complete when they are by your side.
#391 Ricki on 2010-02-22 11:52
