Helloooo everyone! :)
Today I want to talk about love. Valentine's Day was a week or so ago and it got me to thinking about love in all it's various forms.
What is love?
((Baby don't hurt me. Don't hurt me. No more. LOL I had to. ;) ))
According to the first web definition, Love is:
"a strong positive emotion of regard or affection"
The Merriam-Webster dictionary defines it as: A deep, tender, ineffable feeling of affection and solicitude toward a person, such as that arising from kinship, recognition of attractive qualities, or a sense of underlying oneness.
And my favorite definiton:
Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Now that we have an idea of how love is defined, let's take a look at the different forms of love.
There's friendship love:
And romantic love:
Love is a beautiful thing.
Sometimes, in seems too many focus on romantic love. While romantic love is wonderful and special, let's all remember that friendship and family love is just as important.
Be encouraged my friends! If you were single this past Valentine's Day, remember that there's more to love than just romance. If you are currently dating someone, don't forget to love your family and friends ((and your single friends!))
