Chapter 8, Page 27, Book 15

There is only one happiness in this life, to love and be loved.

George Sand

August 27th - It is good to be loved

There are moments in life when we find ourselves only loving those who love us and only doing nice things for those who do nice things for us.  We say we love summer, but that is only until it gets really hot and then we long for fall.  Fall comes and people start to plan for the holidays and dream of a white Christmas.

But I think love is constant and committed, it doesn’t fade when people forget to do those nice things, or when cold winter winds blow.

Love seeks one thing only: the good of the one loved. It leaves all the other secondary effects to take care of themselves. Love, therefore, is its own reward.

Thomas Merton

That is so true, Ma, love is constant, no matter what the season is.

You are so right. We should be true, and everlasting in our love....not wishy washy...changing with the changing of the wind and weather. Steadfast.
