Love is elusive sometimes when we seek only romantic love.
But love is patient. Love is kind, and that may be easier to find.
The “why don’ts” fall off the tongue so easily, like little truth bombs.
Why doesn’t my partner do this and that? Why doesn’t he notice this or why doesn’t she understand that?
They are accusation bombs that feel like truth to a thirsty soul, but they are not patient or kind.
Love is more than the facts of interactions between two souls.
Love is a kiss goodbye when your hair is greasy and unkempt. That’s patience.
Love is a ham and cheese omelette that stuck to the pan, but tasted better than it looked. That was kindness.
Today, I choose to look for the patience and the kindness my partner shows me. Because in those I find the love my “he doesn’t” accusations miss.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
