Thinking About Love
I read a post on Rage Against the Minivan that talked about love, and whether love takes work. Some, who I would guess are lacking in the age/experience department (that is my opinion there - it is my blog...), say that if it's not flowery, easy, rainbows and unicorns, it isn't love, and it's better to move on. I suppose if you aren't married, there is lots to find useful in that statement. However, after some pretty horrific and some fantastic experiences, I say I'm more of the love-is-a-choice boat. There are days I don't feel very loving toward anyone, Jack sometimes especially. However, I want to be loving, I love him. Sometimes it's more of an act it till you feel it kind of day, and sometimes it's fantastic, flowery, rainbows and unicorns. Even when he's acting alcoholic, I respect him enough to see that he's a person, a child of God who has the free will to make his choices. Even if they aren't the choices I'd make for him or myself. Boy don't I sound all healthy and Al-anon ish? For today. And really, that's all we have is today.
