For Love

November 15, 2012

in the generous life

My family and I are trying to get a violin for Christmas.

We talked about it last year and somehow never got around to it. Well, I’ve been watching Craigslist closely and I found one. I don’t know if we’ll wind up getting it, but my sweetie (who is having one of those “everything happens at once” kind of days) made the call and set up a time to meet.

My point is that when you love someone, you listen to them and their needs and wants. You care about what is important to them, even if it’s not important to you, even if it’s not always convenient for you.

I think sometimes that we think that kind of generosity makes you a doormat. Not necessarily so. Love can express itself in selflessness and in sacrifice.

Today was not at all convenient for my husband, but he made time for what was important … for me … for love.

What a great fellow! Sometimes “making time” is the greatest love sacrifice…
