Everyday Love

We should teach our children that fairytale romance is not real. Don’t believe for one second that love is fake. Love is real but perfect love that descends on you like a sweet song with sprinkled flower petals that smells of chocolate is not love. That’s Hollywood.

Real love is work. It’s full out communication and confession. It’s grimy and stinky. It’s laughter and tears. It’s frustratingly hard and soft enveloping too. It is healing and it hurts. Real love is every day and not always good.

Still, real love is worth everything.
