This Kind of Love...

You've no idea how hard I've looked for a gift to bring You.
Nothing seemed right. What's the point of bringing gold
to the gold mine, or water to the Ocean. Everything I came
up with was like taking spices to the Orient. It's no good
giving my heart and my soul because you already have these.
... So- I've brought you a mirror. Look at yourself and
remember me.
Jalaluddin Rumi

Now that is the kind of love I hope to find some day. I know it is a TALL order, but I look at some of my married friends and I see this kind of love. I look at my parents and my brother and his wife and I see this kind of love. I see this love from parent to child and even between some friends (thank you God that I know this love in the bonds of friendship... you know who you are, besties). So since I know this kind of love exists and since I know many who have it and share it, I don't think like it's too much to be looking for.
