Day 26- Your definition of love.

Love is more than those butterfly feelings you get in your stomach or the way your heart leaps when you hear the keys in the door or your kids feet running across the floor.
Love is solidity of knowing that "til death do you part" means that the word divorce was erased from your vocabulary the day you said, "I do".
Love is sobbing in each other's arms when better turns to worse and you feel like an earthquake has shattered your entire world.
Love is the freedom to express anger and frustration, but knowing you won't go to bed with that anger unresolved.
Love is receiving a loving kiss after days of sickness and you are feeling or looking unlovely.
Love is sacrificing personal comfort to ensure the success of their goals and dreams.
Love is watching a piece of your heart walk across the floor each morning to go to work and school.
Love is finally understanding a glimpse of how much God loves me.
Love isn't a feeling.   It is definitely a choice.

Poem by Leo Marks - I love this!
The life that I have is all that I have
And the life that I have is yours
The love that I have of the life that I have
Is yours and yours and yours.
A sleep I shall have, a rest I shall have
Yet death will be but a pause
For the peace of my years in the long green grass
Will be yours and yours and yours.
