love takes time, it needs a history
of giving and receiving, laughing and crying...
love never promises instant gratification
only ultimate fulfillment
love means believing in someone, in something
it supposes a willingness to struggle
to work, to suffer and to rejoice..
Satisfaction and ultimate fulfillment are by-products
of dedicated love.They belong to those who can reach beyond themselves
and to whome giving is more important than receiving...
Love is doing everything you can to help
others build whatever dreams they have
love involves much careful and active listening
It is doing whatever needs to be done and saying whatever will promote
the other's happiness, security and well being..sometimes love hurts..
Love is on a constant journey to what others need.It must be attentive, caring
and open both to what others say and to what other cannot say.
Love does not attach conditions
Genuine love is always a free gift
Love realizes and accepts that there will be disagreements
and disturbing emotions..
There may be times when miles lie between but love is a commitment,
It believes and and endures all things..
Love will never reject each others,,It is the first to encourage
and the last to condemn
