What Love is

Love is following your dreams
Love is having the courage to quit your job
Love is going back to school to get a degree

Love is taking care of your son full time and going to school full time
Love is breaking stereotypes
Love is sleepless nights
Love is hugs and kisses
Love is listening to your overworked and tired wife
Love is finding quick distractions
Love is changing a diaper just minutes after the last one
Love is letting your toddler skip a bath when his tush feels raw
Love is patience
Love is snuggles and hugs
Love is the dog's excited bark when you get home
Love is smiles
Love is also tears
Love is answering the phone no matter what
Love is doing the dishes after you have worked with twenty-five five year olds for seven hours, been in charge of bath time and bedtime for a one year old, and gotten back to preparing for the next day
Love is cleaning the house, watching a toddler all day, doing your classwork and school work, making the family dinner, cleaning the house, doing the laundry, keeping up with diapers, going to bed late, waking up early, and still making a smoothie for someone special when asked
Love is coming over to help with the toddler each day of the week so your son has some time to do homework
Love is letting your children make their own choices, even if you miss them a lot
Love is lots of little things and big things.
Love is easy and hard.
Love is my family and I wouldn't have it any other way.
