True Love

Gerard was not feeling well last Tuesday evening and got a sore throat. We went to bed and he kept moaning, groaning and bouncing and neither of us could sleep. He said he needed some throat lozengers. So, at 12:30 a.m. I got out of bed, got dressed and drove up to the Giant Eagle nearby which is open 24 hours. I was back in half an hour with Kleenex, Halls lozengers and orange juice. Finally, we got some sleep! I was happy when he announced he was not going to work on Wednesday. I didn't even have to try convincing him to stay home. It was a cold, rainy day and he took it easy and was feeling much better by the weekend.

Love is action. Love is a choice, not just a feeling. It is sacrificial. It is thinking about the other person and putting their needs above your own. I'm sure he would have done the same for me if the situation were reversed.

The title is perfect. Love is real when you care for each others wellness. I hope that when we get married soon my Johann will be just as caring (well, he is.. ;)).

I hope Gerard feels better now. I also have colds and it took a toll on my voice. Drinking a lot of water also helps. ;)

I agree with the perfect title! I'm sure he would absolutely do the same thing for you too!
