My husband & I met in high school, actually he was ONLY in 8th grade. The moment I saw his eyes, I knew I would fall madly in love with him. Our relationship throughout high school was like a roller coaster. We fought, got jealous, did the whol "break up, make up" thing

It's always said that you shouldn't wait too long before you apologize or heal the rifts in a relationship. This was going to be the year that I made amends with my brother. It wasn't my fault; it wasn't his fault--we were family that had a rift through "settling" our parents' estate. So, this was the year I'd eat my pride. Besides, I didn't want to come to the end of my life and for it to be too late. So, I collected our family photos, little things I knew he'd value. I was getting it all ready. My brother died unexpectedly on October 11, 2013. He was only 65 years old. Too young to leave his wife, children, and me. I waited too long. Now, it'll never be said, the hug will never be given, the hurt will never be healed....too late to say, "I love you."

Love and fear cannot occupy the same space. Where one exists the other is nonexistent.

Love is expressed as an action and experienced as a feeling. Yet, love has an essence that resists defining in any single way––it encompasses compassion, tolerance, endurance, support, faith, determination and more. Love reaches beyond romance and embraces us in all walks of life as we encounter one another and make choices about respecting and caring for each other.
Niane Crage, Philippines
Love is a verb - an action word. It means giving of yourself for someone else's benefit.
If you love someone:
SHARE their dreams
and on, and on, and on, and on.....!
And it means that as you give you don't expect anything in return. Oh sometimes you'll get wonderful things in return but it is best not to expect to get anything. Actually, it's in the giving that we get back blessings in abundance whether the object of our giving ever says so much as a thank you.
