A Favorite Quote:

"To love deeply in one direction makes us more loving in all others."
- Anne-Sophie Swetchine

Love is unconditional, it does not boast, it is not easily angered. Learning to love is the lesson of a lifetime. Just when we think we have all the love in our hearts we would ever need, someone comes along to test our theory, our patience, our very balance. I liken love to a plant: You water a plant to make it grow, and you must ask for God to "water" your heart with love so you may cultivate it. It must be tried and stretched and practiced. It grows. It must be shown and given and recieved. It grows.

When we do not feel it growing, when we feel like our love is enough, that is the very instant in which our love is subject to loss.

Don't let love become an endangered species. We have enough of those already.
