What is love? There is no proper definition, is there? There shouldn’t be. Love is different for everyone. Every person feels it differently. One person’s love cannot be compared to someone else’s love. Why do we need love? To feel secure, to feel wanted …..we need it for ourselves, to ourselves. Love is so selfish. Or is there another kind of love which is not selfish? “True love is when nothing is expected in return.” I read it somewhere. That is love, to give. You have to give and give and still not expect anything in return. Does that actually happen in this practical world of ours? Agreed, we might do things for others occasionally, but if we don’t get a little appreciation or love in return, how can anyone continue to give? What is the purpose of giving?
Yes, come to think of it, there is only one person who has given me this kind of love. And that is my mom. She has been with me since the beginning of my life and throughout my ups and downs. I know I can always count on her and that she will never let me down. Whenever I want her, there she is. And like everyone else, I feel that she is the best mom anyone can ever have. You can never question a mom’s love. Moms are the only ones to treat you like kids no matter how grown up you are (and I like it that way!)
As far as I know, that is the only love that still pampers, still provides and still gives and gives and gives….
