Teardrops on Roses.....

How do you know if someone truly loves you?
Simple: they sacrifice for you.
Without sacrifice, love is not love. It is infatuation, perhaps. But it is not love. Not really.
Love is the beginning and the ending of all things. Love is all there is. Love is everything.
Some people think sacrifice is an unpleasant, inconvenient thing. But they don't understand that when you sacrifice in the service of love, it is nothing less than the key to happiness.
And here's the miracle: when you sacrifice in the service of love, it doesn't feel like you're giving something up. It feels like the greatest gift. When you truly love someone, you WANT to sacrifice for them because it is the surest demonstration of love. It is an honor.
Love compels you to lay down your life for the one you love. There's nothing you won't do for love because love is all there is; it's everything. Without love it's all just meaningless. It's empty. It's a waste of time.
How do you know someone loves you? Because with their whole lives they are saying just one thing: you first.

We understand each other. πŸ’—

Well. I'm a foster failure. I'm keeping Ciabatta!! 😊😊😊🐢🐢🐢 She literally won't let me out of her sight. She follows me and snuggles with me and is so attached to me that I just couldn't imagine putting her through the stress of going to another home. She's already been rejected by 3 families. It's time to let her soak in love and acceptance. πŸ’—

"Mama, will you please put these flowers in my hair?" πŸ’—πŸŒΈπŸ’—πŸŒΈπŸ’—

Ciabatta said the neck scarf was bothersome so Bernie offered to wear it for her.
