My Inconvenient Truth
It's easy to say we love someone when things are going our way... when our schedules line up perfectly and our days are spent without conflict.
But I've always felt that love isn't about the easy and fun.
Love is putting someone else before yourself at times when you may not want to.
Love isn't making dinner because you get home before your mate.
Love is making it even though you get home afterward.
Love isn't staying up late on Saturday night because you don't have to work Sunday.
Love is staying up late on Thursday despite your early work schedule because your mate needs your company.
The truth is that love is putting someone else first when other priorities loom. A truth that shows selflessness and compassion.
And yes, it's a truth that's inconvenient.
