Gift of Love
I saved the best for the last. Love. It’s not the Romeo and Juliet story neither is it the one in the movies. It’s one I learnt this year and I’m personally grateful for. It’s love that is a choice. A choice to look beyond flaws and outward appearances, to see deep within and find a child waiting to be loved. It is love only described perfectly by Jesus Christ when he willingly gave his life.
Love, beyond the butterflies into the deepest darkest parts of another person’s soul. A friend once told me, if you love someone, you should love their soul. It’s the most important. Sometimes, we love people to self destruction or even destruction for both of us. There’s also the part were we love someone but don’t know how to love them, driving them far away, leaving them feeling unloved and misunderstood.
Love (and marriage) are two schools I know you don’t graduate from. There’s always something to learn due to our naturally flawed nature as humans. I want you to end this year with love in mind and start the new year with it. Loving selfless. which may entail feeling and being vulnerable is guaranteed to take you through the hardest times.
“Love is made up of three unconditional properties in equal measure:
Remove any one of the three and the triangle falls apart.
Which, by the way, is something highly inadvisable. Think about it — do you really want to live in a world of only two dimensions?
So, for the love of a triangle, please keep love whole.”

Happy New Year in Advance.
