100 Words on Love, by Matthew Coe
It’s realising that you can’t imagine what your life would be without them. It’s knowing without doubt they would never give you reason to doubt. It’s flying halfway across the country on a phone call, because they miss you. It’s being compelled to go to church, for the first time in years, because they’re in the hospital tonight, waiting for surgery. It’s calling your mom when she’s told she needs an emergency C-section, because you need to know what to say.
Love is the moment of dawning comprehension that, even during a fight, you’re still happier with them than without.
