Love is so many things, Smikle. I waited up all the wee hours of a night a few nights ago just to phone call a personal friend 6,000 miles away who needed a total cheering up. That phone call, such a simple little thing made a world of a difference to that person, and I love that person a lot.
Love is giving without taking. It is always showing just our warm side, and our "The door is open come on in for a chat" sign hanging up all the time. Put ourselves in the other person's shoes, and ask ourselves "what would we want - what way would we want to be loved?"
Love is sharing ourselves in everything with that special person. And putting them first, always. It is unselfish, and open.
