Sound like fun? Oh sure it does! Come'on get your creative juices flowing! So leave your entries in a comment.

The quotes are two extraordinary quotes (at least I think so):

Once in a while, in the middle of an ordinary life, love gives us a fairy tale. ~unknown

In the end it's not going to matter how many breaths you took, but how many moments took your breath away. ~shing xiong

I witnessed many selfless acts of love, all within 2 days.

It's the love of family members.

You know it is love when a family member bears the extreme pain year after year to offer thanksgiving.

If it is not love, he would not have done it for the past 20 years. I'm referring to the love of a father who had to walk 4 km, bare-footed in the hot sun and carrying a heavy metal grill. Scores of steel forks were driven into his flesh. And a metal spear pierced through his mouth.

All he asked was good health and harmony for his family.

Hi Mary,
I'm not good a poetry or quotes but here goes. You know it's love when after 40 years I look at you and still see the 20 year old I married.

Like God, love is beyond definition or limitations and speaks uniquely to each individual soul; it is personal, private and ineffable. One cannot love wrong.
