L is for Love. When The Husband and I first got married, he was still in the military. He would have to leave for days and/or weeks at a time training with the USMC. It would kill me to drop him off at the airport or up at the base, knowing we were going to be separated for a long period of time. I give all the career, full-time military families major credit! They have to go so much longer without being able to see their loved ones than I ever did. The women and men of the military, who keep it all together back here on the home front, are heroes to me too. It's not easy being left behind. That's love. Its often mocked and quoted at weddings, but if you really read and meditate on 1 Corinthians 13:4-8, to me, it's the perfect example of what true love should be.
1 Corinthians 13:4-8 Love is patient. Love is kind. It does not envy. It does not boast. It is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes always perseveres. Love never fails.

Now, really, about me: I bring the crazy wherever I go, so I've been told...I make fun of myself more than anyone else ever could. I hate: the awkward silence in elevators, watches with no numbers, picky eaters, Cancer and legalism.
