This Kind Of Love

If you have a heart that beats and knows love then this, my friend, is for you.

Whether you’ve been married for 30 years, dating for only a few months, or you’re still looking for your soul mate…this is my hope for you.

I hope you have the kind of love that sweeps you off you feet.

The kind of love that brings you breakfast in bed.

I hope you have the kind of love that sends you flowers..

Just because.

I hope you have the kind of love that travels around the world and back with you.

I hope you have the kind of love that surprises you with tickets to see your favorite band.

I hope you have the kind of love that laughs at all of your jokes.

The kind of love that makes you feel unique and beautiful and special, just for being you.

I hope you have the kind of love that makes every single day an absolute adventure.

I hope you have the kind of love that makes all your friends jealous.

I hope that you have the kind of love that you’ve always dreamed of.

But if there comes a day when the world feels like it’s crashing down right beneath your very feet…

I hope you have the kind of love that stays.

The kind of love that picks you up when the world brings you down to your knees.

The kind of love that asks you the hard questions.

The kind of love that sits through counseling when it would be easier to just call it quits.

The kind of love that stays by your side in the hospital at all hours.

The kind that loves you through the miscarriage, the cancer, the gunshots, the rehab…all of it.

The kind  of love that wipes away your tears when you lose a loved one.

The kind of love that sits in the dark and eats ramen noodles with you after you lose your job.

I hope you have the kind of love that prays for you, over you, and with you through all of the pits and peaks of life.

I hope you have the kind of love that washes your hair for you when you can’t do it for yourself.

The kind of love that carries you to bed at night when your legs are no longer able.

And the kind of love that wakes up every single day just to do it all over again.

The purest love.

I hope you have the kind of love that’s patient.

The kind of love that’s kind.

The kind of love that doesn’t envy, doesn’t boast, and isn’t proud.

The kind that doesn’t dishonor others.

The kind of love that’s not self seeking or easily angered.

The kind that keeps no record of wrongs.

The kind of love that rejoices in truth.

The kind that always protects, trusts, hopes, and perseveres.

I hope you have the kind of love that never, ever fails.

I know it won’t be perfect.

But I hope you cherish it.

In this life, I hope you have the privilege of experiencing the kind of love as beautiful as this.

And I hope that it’s all you ever dreamed of.

And more.

So much more.

Now go be love.

And as always..

bless and be blessed,

Mary Alan
