what love does


"Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. Love never fails."  1 Corinthians 13:4-8a
Love...
leads to prayer.
remembers the little things.
knows me better than I know myself.
sighs with me.
challenges me to new heights.
holds my hand.
lets go at just the right moment.
corrects.
understands.
forgives.
instantly appears when needed.
faithfully stands by.
speaks volumes through a hug.
wants the best for me.
answers questions.
laughs with, near and at me.
holds my heart.
points me in the right direction.
quietly waits.
makes recommendations, but let's me choose.
communicates in ways I understand.
dreams big.
loves back.

Not at all.
Never has been, really.

It is about the people who invest in me.
My husband. My boys. My family. My friends.
They all share themselves with me.
When I am not at my best, I'm not giving them a good return for their investment.
They get the tired looks, the lack of energy excuses, and the wimpy "maybe next time" cop outs.
I have come to realize that those that take precious time to invest in me deserve better from me. I need to adhere to the direction given on any flight I've ever been on that goes something like this: make sure your own oxygen mask is properly secured before helping others. If I don't take care of myself first, my ability to care for others effectively diminishes quickly.
My choosing clean eating, drinking enough water, and exercising on a daily basis is how I put on my mask first. Am I perfect at meeting the n…
