The Meaning of True Love

It is sharing and caring
Giving and forgiving.
Loving and being loved.
Walking hand in hand
Talking heart to heart
Seeing through each others eyes.
Laughing together
Weeping together
Praying together
And always trusting
And believing
And thanking God
For each other…
For love that is shared
is a beautiful thing—
It enriches the soul
and makes the heart sing!

Helen Steiner Rice

Too often when people want to show their love for each other, they buy them things….but money can’t buy love.  It’s in the many countless everyday things that we show our love.  More than anything else people know they are loved by what we do, not what we give them.

Love is not only something you feel, it is something you do.

David Wilkerson

There are things you do because you want to and then there are things you do for love.  One of the biggest things we can do is talk to them and listen to them.  The time we spend with those we love makes a big difference.  

To love is so startling it leaves little time for anything else.

Emily Dickinson

Love means being there for someone through the ups and the downs.  When we show up for people when they need us, to be there for them, we show them our love.  

And never forget to say I Love You.  We need to let the people in our lives know just how much they are appreciated and loved.

To love is to act.

Victor Hugo

Knowing you are loved is a wonderful feeling. Helen Steiner Rice can put feelings to words the best.
Love is the greatest human satisfaction, IMHO

Sure's true ... like the Beatles sang, "Money can't buy me love!"
I think one of the greatest examples of love (and respect) is the ability to really listen to another. Sometimes it's hard for me not to interrupt (lol), but I try! Everyone wants to be heard.


being loved through the ups and downs is a good thing for sure. "More than anything else people know they are loved by what we do, not what we give them."
