Yes, love is patient, love is kind… But love is a bunch of other stuff too. Like unglamourous, unexpected and sometimes in forms that knock your socks off and leaves your heart all a-pounding before you had even realised there was a beat.
I don’t just mean the ‘…sitting in a tree’ kind of love. But the love of a friend who, during a wedding when you are crying your eyes out, lets you wipe your snotty nose on the sleeve of her new Country Road jacket. The love of a Mom who, even though you are terrible at replying, sends smses to wish you a good day. Of endlessly supportive and ameezing brothers. Of partners who teach you about calmness, happiness and wasabi. And of the people who you share life with, who let you be yourself. Um, I love you.
