i've been thinking about love A LOT this past week. i just think love is really unfair, romantic love, friendship love... all of it. i dont get it. maybe all those christies are right.. maybe humans dont know how to love.

how do you love?

what does love mean to you?

love is great. when it is cold you can wear them to keep your hands warm, like when you go out in the snow or if its just cold even without snow.

when you're washing dishes also, love keeps you hands from getting all puckery and dry.

and all you need is heavy duty love for yardwork and around-the-house projects to keep from getting your hands all dirty or cut by sharp objects.

love is pretty handy.

what does love mean to me, how do i love. good questions!
to me it means - listening with my heart, knowing that others have feelings too, responding after listening, reaching out as unconditionally as possible, forgiveness... meaning letting go of the hope for a better past (so difficult, giving what i can and not feeling guilty about my limitations as long as i have truly given.
how do i love... i hope in all those ways - really caring, trying so hard not to judge, embracing the joy i see in a person and hugging away the pain... if that will help... or sometimes from those that we have given each other permission... a good swift kick.
love is tough and its about the other person.

um hmmm well in short, i think.... love means sticking it out when you want to throw it all away.
i suppose thats the best way to put it.

I would suggest The Road Less Traveled by Scott Peck. He has some great things to say about love and it most likely won't convince you to become agnostic! You could pick it up at any library.

I dont know why, but my reply to this blog was bugging me all day yesterday. i think my answer was wrong.
love is found in moments like what i mentioned, but its not WHAT it is.
love is a feeling. its the best feeling. out of all the feelings we get that are good, love is the strongest and most inspiring. because it comes from a connection to another person, its giving and receiving all rolled into one.
so there. now i can relax. :)
