Love for me....

hmmm......Love for me is when beloved husband sacrifices his mid night cup of tea because he forgot to buy milk.

Yes...that's what the beloved husband did.

We get two liters of milk on Monday and two on Friday...occasionally having to buy additional one liter midweek.

But this has become the beloved husband's job since I surrendered our milk man last November as I suspected he used to add water in milk in his way from shop to our house.

Only this Friday....he forgot.

When I went to get the milk out of the fridge in order to make my porridge this Saturday evening...hmm....I had no choice but to leave the smallest amount.

...Meaning not enough for two cups of tea.

Where we live it isn't a case of walking to the corner shop.

Most nights at around 11.30 after sometime dinner...he makes us tea occasionally gracing me with a plate of biscuits.

But...this meant only one cup.

And he...being the perfect gentleman...insisted that the one cup should be mine.

I didn't marry him for his money....nor did I marry him for his physical appearence...hmmm...or may be I did...okay okay...I suppose not to mention this aloud...

hmm...but I did marry him for love....and of course his night time tea.

What is love for you?


  1. Masha Allah... :)
    Endurance, Sacrifice, Compromise and Understanding in any relatuonship, all are Love for me... :)

  2. The meaning of love is found in the word "unconditional"....
    Loving someone through their flaws and all. Accepting and embracing each others differences and compromising with their offerings. Love is only CARING AND TRUSTING the one you love.

  16. Hi,

    Before loving someone else one should love oneself with loyalty and sincerity otherwise love for others has just a mirage a spider use to attrack bees into her web.

    I hope you have loved yourself first before asking for love from others, if you have then congratualtions. But oone can see the contradict situation by reading your posts that you dont have a single wingle desire of love for yourself otherwise life would have been easy for you.

    Love for me is loving myself. Think about it...thinking...hhmmm....
