Put your loving where your mouth is

When you claim to love someone, your every deed needs to show it. It’s in the way you address them, your tolerance for their imperfections, the way you handle misunderstandings, how you celebrate their successes, how you share their sorrows and how you cherish their happiness. It’s putting them before you.

But the reality is we are human, and we aren’t perfect. Therefore the way we love, can’t be perfect either. But, the beauty is in noticing these things…those moments when we fall short and deal with them accordingly. That’s where the true test of our affection lies. Are we as endearing in the lows as we are in the highs? When we hurt each other, which we will, can we forgive? Can we forgive and still love? Will our love grow or will it falter?
