I remember when I was a little girl, every morning I would go to my mom and dad’s bathroom to get ready for school, and as I sat on the top of the toilet waiting for the shower water to get hot, I would stare at this plaque on their wall. It said, “love is the giving and sharing of two hearts together”. I would look up and read it every single day, wondering if I could catch it off guard and see the definition has changed. But, it never did. For years and years, it was firm on its definition of love. Me? I have not had a solid definition of the four-letter word. Year after year, experience after experience, the word changes for me. So now I have come to the conclusion that love is simply love. It cannot be defined as anything other than what it is, what it feels like, what it looks like, what it sounds like. Love is love. And, it has infinite definitions. What it means depends on who you ask, and it’s not just limited to romance.
According to the dictionary, love is:
An intense feeling of deep affection.
A deep romantic or sexual attachment to someone.
A personified figure of love, Cupid.
But, Love is love. That’s all we can say.
Love is the giving and sharing of two hearts together.
Love is staying up all night helping your friend study for a test.
Love is caring.
Love is honesty.
Love is listening.
Love is understanding.
Love is marriage.
Love is suffering through a boring event to be with your friend.
Love is taking care of someone’s kids as your own.
Love is welcoming someone home with a clean house and good meal.
Love is sweet memories.
Love is buying a home together.
Love is doing anything for your child.
Love is being there every step of the way with a sick, or dying, loved one.
Love is accompanying your mom to the grocery store.
Love is expressing your passion.
Love is waking up out of your sleep early in the morning to take someone to work or school.
