Weekly Photo Challenge: Love

No challenge here. This is easy!

My partner, best friend, and husband. Who else would go tramping around in the woods in a downpour with me, and think it’s great fun?!

I remember hearing something a long time ago that stayed with me – “Love is a behavior, not a feeling. Love is a verb” It is how you behave with someone. It’s how you treat them every day.  I did a Google search to find the source of this and found this interesting article on OPRAH, and another excellent BLOG POST.

Every day I am treated with kindness and respect. Every day he tells me how glad he is that we are together. I never have to be someone different to please him. I never live in fear that he will behave badly towards me. I know that he is always here for me, and will support me wherever I go. Is it any wonder I feel so loved and so fortunate that we are together?

    What wonderful expressions of love. And yes! Love is an action, not just words. Love that! And now, I am going to go hug my husband and tell him how happy I am that he’s in my life! Thanks for sharing such a lovely post. 🙂

      That thought has stayed with me for years because it’s so different from how we usually think about love, and it made so much sense to me. I’m glad you liked it too.
