Love Is

Love is-Unselfishness, caring about his or her welfare more than your own.
Love is-Keeping promises, really doing so when you say you'll phone.
Love is-Sensitivity, not using his or her failure's as basis for your fun.
Love is-Faithfulness in every way and in everything you've done.

Love is-Sacrifice, Daddy putting his family's needs foremost.
Love is-Gentleness, not teaching with roughness and boast.
Love is-Kindness, stopping to think before reproaching.
Love is-Respect, using refinement in approaching.

Love is-Mama holding her baby to her breast.
Love is-Mama losing sleep and needing rest.
Love is-Mama kissing hurts and holding tight.
Love is-Mama protecting her young with all her might.

Love is-Sticking it out through thick and thin.
Love is-Being there whether lose or win.
Love is not-Jealousy of your friend's success.
Love is: Being first to help when he makes a mess.
