20 Things Love Has Taught Me
As far as love goes, I have been amazingly blessed my entire life. I have two of the greatest parents in the world who have always shown me how much they love me, through both words and actions. Mom and Dad celebrated twenty-five years of marriage last July. They have given me the best example of what a happy, Godly marriage looks like, and I pray that one day I’ll get to experience that for myself. My son provides me the most perfect example of unconditional love. He loves me no matter what I do or say, and I believe that until you have a child and experience their love for you, it’s really hard to fathom God’s love for all His children. A child’s love is the most pure, beautiful thing in the world, and it truly is amazing. As a single mama, it’s pretty special when a man steps up and wants to be a part of your life and your child’s as well. It’s just another form of love that is unique and rare and special. All of these experiences came to mind when brainstorming all the different things love has taught me. I came up with quite a list, but I managed to narrow it down to what I felt were the top twenty most important things.
Love has taught me that…
20. Honesty is always the best policy.
19. Boogers aren’t that gross.
18. Tears can be happy and sad at the same time.
17. Unconditional means without any conditions. None. Whatsoever.
16. Cuddling is the best.
15. Happily ever after can exist, but you have to work at it.
14. Giving should happen a lot more than taking.
13. There are many different forms of love.
12. Communication is key.
11. Kisses have healing powers.
10. Hugs do, too.
9. There is no past tense form of love. Either you still do, or you never did.
8. The little things end up being the big things. Always.
7. Fairy tales do exist.
6. It’s ok to cry sometimes.
5. Time heals everything.
4. No one loves like Jesus does.
3. Expectation leads to disappointment.
2. Acts of love are the best kind.
1. And now these three remain: faith, hope, and love.
But the greatest of these is love.
