Love is friendship that has caught fire. It is quiet understanding, mutual confidence, sharing and forgiving. It is loyalty through good and bad times. It settles for less than perfection and makes allowances for human weaknesses.
Love is content with the present, it hopes for the future but doesn’t brood over the past. It’s the day in, day out chronicle of irritations, problems, compromises, small and large disappointments, big victories and working toward common goals.
If you have love in your life, it can make up for a great many things you lack. If you don’t have it, no matter what else there is, it not enough.
