To Love

To love someone is to give them your last cold water on a hot day. To love someone is to never tell them they just gave up the opportunity for celebrating their birthday so that you can have a treat when you are a child.

A mother’s love is undeniable, and something to cherished.

To love someone is to get out of the car first on a bitter winter day so you can get a blanket so they wont be as cold. To love someone is to tell your cat every night how much you love them, even if they don’t understand.

To love someone is to give up the last swing on the playground for your younger sibling and then push them for a while so they can have fun. To love someone is to allow them to hold your hand if they’re scared, even if they’re squeezing too hard and it hurts.

To love someone is to save their life because you feel something isn’t right, so you call an ambulance, sacrificing your good night of sleep. To love someone is to look both ways before you cross the street.

And even as I write this, there are infinite ways to show that you love someone, not just the ones I’ve listed here. These are all things I’ve experienced in my life from my brother and my mom because they love me unconditionally, and I definitely know that not everybody has that.

I’m so grateful to have the little family I have, because they love me, and quite frankly, that’s all I need.

(P.S. I have come very close to tears while writing this. It means so much to me. And I hardly ever cry.)
