To Love is To Nurture

by Prof. Liwayway Memije-Cruz




The greatest of these is LOVE".

Without love, life is empty and void of meaning. Love includes God's love for you, your love for God, your love for others, love in family.

Loving is a feeling that gives meaning and colors to one's life. But to love is not just simply saying " i love you". It entails a lot of giving and sharing, commitment, sacrifices, respect, patience, forgiving, understanding, accepting, appreciating... "loving with all your heart and soul". And everyone accepts that "to love and being loved is the sweetest thing one can ever have in his life".

But to love regardless of its dimension, intensity and perspective needs time and sharing of feelings and emotions.

Showing your love to your parents needs time and effort. Simply holding their hands, a kiss and doing simple things without asking you to do them would mean a lot to them, even erasing a little if not all the burden in their hearts just to be able to give you what you need. More so if you have your own lives, leaving the two of them at their own.

Loving somebody... your parents, siblings, friends and a special one needs to be nurtured for you to be able to get the most of the pleasures, joys and happiness it gives. Loving gestures, words of endearment, simple notes and presents on one's special day, a sincere hug, a simple hello, and a sweet smile can bring magic into one's heart. Thus giving both of you a loving and thankful heart in return... making your lives at peace, sweeter, lighter and easier despite the trials and obstacles that would come along your way. And this is how God teaches us how to love...

And as what Sasha Azevedo said “ Life is too short not to make the best and the most of everything that comes your way everyday.” Loving someone as if it is your last day to show it is better than you never had done it for him.
