What Would You Do For Someone You Love?
Our parents gave us life without expecting more
They taught us what it's all about, what the living's for.
What would you do for someone you love? A broad question that requires a lengthy answer and perhaps a different answer from different people. Circumstances in any situation help dictate answers to questions. Which person do you love? There are different kinds of love for different people. For example, the love you have for your parents versus the love you have for your children.
There is no way to thank your parents properly. You can only do that by the love you return to them. No matter what kind of parents they may be they are still your parents. They brought you into this world and raised you. They stood by you when you were sick, when you were growing up and thought you knew everything, when you needed help with homework and with life. What would you do for them? Would you cherish and honor them? Would you take care of them in their old age? Would you give back to them all that they gave to you? Always carry gratitude for your parents, always and guard your love for them as long as you have them because we all know they won't always be here. So, what would you do for the parents you love?
God blesses us with little ones to take into our care
To love them and to guide them and always to be there.
Then, there's your children. You brought them into the world. You share a bond with your children that no one else can share. A humorous but very true saying is "they know you from the inside out". Birth is a phenomenal experience that gets hormones going you didn't even know you had! This baby, this stranger becomes the love of your life. For the first year of his/her life you are his world too. He depends on you completely for all his needs.
Children are basically "little you" in many ways and yet they are definitely their own person. You start to realize that when they start to learn the word "no". They become people as they learn to walk and talk and be independent.
They are what you taught them and they live how you showed them. What would you do for them? Usually that answer is anything. The love you have for your children is unconditional and it goes without saying whenever they need you, you are there for them. Even when they are grown and out of the house they are still your children and you always want the best for them.
No matter where they are or what they do you love them. You forgive anything and you would do anything for them. What would you do for your children?
To love and to cherish you are my heart
We're grown together right from the start.
What would you do for someone you love if that someone you love is your spouse? What is a spouse definition? A married person, a partner in marriage. This is a different kind of love. This is a love that you have specifically chosen. A sharing and growing together with your partner that you can't explain. This person comes into your life and all of a sudden you know you love them. Is there a love test to find out if you love them? Of course not, it is something you know in your heart. When you marry someone you marry them because you love them and want to spend the rest of your life with them. There are good times and there are bad times but love guides you through. You learn to share in ways you never knew. You learn to put this person before all else.
You sacrifice for your spouse without telling him. You do it because you love him. You do little things to make him happy, like having supper ready when he comes home from work, or getting a babysitter so you can spend an evening together. You let him go to the football game with his friends....all things you know will make him happy. That's what you do for someone you love, you try to make them happy which should then make you happy!
So to answer the question what would you do for someone you love? Anything and everything. You would sacrifice anything, do anything and be anything that would help them and make them happy. You would give them everything you could but mostly you would give them yourself, the greatest gift of all!
