The most universal question for mankind. What is love? Happiness. Salvation. Gentle Touch. Kind Word. Eye Contact. Promise. Hope. Shared. Faith. Patience. Yearning. Truth. Dynamic. Sacrifice. Love is everything.
Count yourself fortunate if you have love. Or if you have loved.
Love changes. It softens the hardest visage. It ameliorates harsh words. It can be hard fought. It can happen in a moment. It can take a lifetime. It has mysterious paths. It has many manifestations.
Love yourself. Love your work. Love your family. Love your friends. Love your pet. Love your partner most of all. Most of all.
Believe that your love story is for the ages. Singular and amazing and the very essence of life.
