Love is like the sun: it’s always there no matter what (remember that even at night, the sun is still there, it’s just shining on the other side of the earth and when it’s cloudy outside the sun is also still there, it’s just behind the clouds).
True love isn’t just a feeling, feelings come and go. But true love doesn't come and go. True love is patient and kind. It isn’t jealous, rude, selfish, controlling, or easily angered. It forgives. It’s supportive, loyal, hopeful, and trusting.
Love is like coming home to the leftovers from last night you've been looking forward to eating all day.
Love is being able to show all the sides of you. The good, the bad and the "I’m hungover and haven’t showered in 3 days" ugly.
Love is someone that is willing to always put in the effort to have a happy and healthy relationship.
You know you’ve met the ultimate better half when they make you want to be better.
Love is not being afraid of the idea of spending the rest of your life with him or her. Being by his or her side is where you feel most comfortable.
Love is when you find yourself wanting to share everything. Opening up the fire hydrant of your heart and gushing out your most closely guarded sources of pride and shame.
And last but not least love feels like you’ve won the lottery.
Every morning when I awake, I see Alex's thick black curls massed on the pillow next to me and It feels surreal. "I’m married to the Love of My Life.” I genuinely feel, on a daily basis, as though I’ve won the lottery.
