Love is patient.
I was reminded of this today when I got to have a chat with a cute girl, who had a boy she was dating leave on a mission today.
It can be so hard to be far away from people we love.
It can be hard to trust in the Lord and in His timing. Sometimes it seems like it would be easier if things would work out the way we want them to, when we want them to. Which is usually right now.
I got a lot of flack for writing Randy when he was on his mission. People who didn’t even really know me or Randy were telling me that I was distracting, that he couldn’t possibly be a good missionary while I was writing him, and other things.
That taught me another aspect of love being patient – being patient with others who weren’t sure that I was making the right decisions.
Love is all about understanding that timing is everything, and that sometimes being patient is what will help it work out. Randy sure was patient when we were in junior high and high school, waiting for me to figure it out. Then it was my turn to be patient. And now, every day we try to be patient with each other while we navigate our tricky lives.
Happy love day three everyone:)
