#DailyWritingChallenge: Love

When I was little I created a club called the ‘Love is… Club’ dedicated to the cartoons by Kim Casali. I used to love opening up the newspaper and looking at  the cartoon for that day. I would cut it out and bring it into school to discuss it with the other members of the ‘Love is…Club’. I had completely forgotten about that club or those cartoons until I started to write this. Sadly, due to copyright, I can’t post one of those cartoons here, but there will be a few of you who will remember the cartoons I mean.

In honour of that club, but sadly without the illustrations, this blog is just about what ‘love is’ to me.

Love is…

  • worrying;
  • caring;
  • waiting for someone even when they are delayed;
  • being there;
  • being utterly willing to go through the pain of child-birth.

Love is…

  • sacrificing;
  • trusting;
  • tiring (staying awake with a teething baby);
  • standing on the edge of a football match on a cold, wet day watching my daughter play football and brimming with pride;
  • being excited to see my husband walk through the door, even though I have been with him for 25 years.

Love is…

  • quiet;
  • kindness;
  • calling my mum every day just to hear her say hi;
  • remembering that birthday, anniversary, celebration;
  • letting my daughter use my make-up!

Love is…

  • listening;
  • hopeful;
  • painful;
  • letting go;
  • life-changing.

Love is the greatest gift that we can give to one another.
