Is it the face of a child
Is it the thrill of danger
Is it the kindness we see in the eyes of a stranger
Is is more than faith
Is is more than hope
Is is waiting for us at the end of our rope

I say, it's love
I say, it's love

Is it the one you call home
Is it the Holy Land
Is is standing right here holding your hand
Is it just like the movies
Is it rice and white lace
Is it the feeling I get when I wake to your face

Is it the first summer storm
Is it the colors of fall
Is it having so little
And yet having it all
Is it one in a million
Is it a change to belong
Is it standing right here singing this song

Is it a veil or a cross
Is it the poet's gift
Is it the face that has launched over thousands of ships

Is it making you laugh
Is it letting you cry
Is it where we believe that we go when we die
Is it how you were made
Is it your mother's ghost
Is it the wish that I'm wishing for you life, for your life, for your life the most

~Love by Sugarland

Lately this one of the songs I've been playing on repeat. For me, so many lines of this song are true. My life is surrounded by love and beauty. Its in the people around me, the place I call home, my friends on the other end of the phone or computer, and how excited my dog gets to see me each and every time I walk through the door. Its in words both that I write and that others write. Love is in the lyrics of a song. A hug from a friend. A kind word from a stranger. A simple cup of hot chocolate on a cold day. Those are just a few things. So tell me, what is love for you?

This made me smile.

Love, to me, is my city. And new books. And dresses.

And the comfort phase of a relationship.

Love is... Love is everything that surrounds me and that makes me smile.

I do try to surround myself with love and beauty as much as possible. Positiveness is the best thing

I've never heard that song before!

Family (like Blanket for example, friends, blogger buddies, sitting on my couch with a cup of tea while reading the newest issue of gourmet magazine, NYC at holiday time, lots and lots of laughter, etc, etc

Glad you are dwelling on the positive!
