Late Night Thought


For some reason as I sit here in the dark, listening to the sounds of nature and enjoying a cool breeze that has been all but non existent for most of the summer, I ponder the meaning of love.

And I keep coming back to this quote....

 Love is when the other person's happiness is more important than your own.

It was a rather long day, started at 6:30 am when my little ones stomach began acting up again.  It continue all day, leaving quite a mess to clean up all over the house.  The floors got scrubbed twice, outside kept having to be hosed down, baths, you you name it.  A vet visit that keep us waiting for almost a hour to be seen.  I felt utterly exhausted but through it all not a smidgen of negative emotion...no you see I love the little one so much I would do anything to see she her happy.  

And then I thought about that, yes that's love.  When you would do anything to see that another is happy. Even if it means a lot of work, giving up something, going out of your way, doing things we might not be fond of, etc.  Love simply asks us to ensure the one we love is happy.  And often times in making those we love happy we are given that happiness back....many times and more.

Then I thought what a better world the place would be if we could all feel that way.   To simply put another's happiness before our own....to think how profound that is.
