I was moved by an article I read in my local newspaper this weekend titled “Love…short and sweet.”
Readers gave their definitions of love in six or fewer words influenced by a legend that Ernest Hemingway once boasted that he could write a complete story in just six words.
His masterpiece: “For Sale: baby shoes, never worn.”
The legend, which has never been proved, provoked this article that I read to apply this theory to LOVE.
Here are some of the responses I wanted to share.
Six Words to Describe Love:
”And they lived happily ever after…”
”Family, Friends, Faith and Something Chocolate”
”Love is watching your daughter marry.”(I kind of teared up on this one)
”An art that’s hard to master.”
”I think love is a choice.”
”Love is pancakes at 4 am.”
”Love is sharing the same dreams.”
”Good times. Bad times. Life time.”
“Retired couple: fireplace, movie, separate recliners.”
“Love is my husband and kinds.”
”Sitting side by side saying nothing.”
”My beautiful child smiling at me.”
My two favorites…
An eleven year old wrote…
”Love means peace and security forever.”
And finally, “Love is God’s everlasting gift. Amen!”
Happy Valentine’s Day!
