The day after Valentine's.

Love is more than the amount of flowers you receive on February 14.
It's more than presents.
More than a fancy dinner.
It's about working things out.
And having children together.
And making mistakes.
And choosing to be together for all time and eternity.
And laughing.
And staying up late just so you can be awake when they get home.
And foot massages.
And trust.
And wanting to be the best you can, just for them.
And accepting them when they aren't the best.
And sometimes fighting.
But always making up.
And missing them.
And kissing.
And thinking they are the most beautiful person in the world.
And growing old together.
And never running out of things to talk about.
Love is patient.
Love is kind.
Love dos not envy.
Love does not boast.
Love is not proud.
Love is not rude.
Love is not self-seeking.
Love is not easily angered.
Love keeps no record of wrongs.
Love does not delight in evil.
Love rejoices with the truth.
Love always protects.
Love always trusts.
Love always hopes.
Love always perseveres. 
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 

Thanks mom and dad for proving that true love does exist. 
And for always loving each other, and our family.
Happy anniversary.

"Unless it's mad passionate extraordinary love,
It's a waste of time.
There are too many mediocre things in life.
Love should not be one of them."
