There was a prophetically poignant moment in the otherwise fairytale romance of Prince Charles and Lady Diana.
Interviewer: Are you in love?
Diana, instantly, “Of course.”
Charles, qualifying, “Whatever in love means.”
Probably every marriage goes through “Do you love each other?” “Of course.” “Whatever love means…” seasons.
And then it helps to remember the best definition of love I know: Love Does. It is not just a feeling, an abstract noun, but a verb.
So, this Valentine’s Day week, I have been considering what Love Does, and how to make tiny changes in my relationship with Roy.
Well, a walking date together each week, and I will help clear the dishes after meals. Normally, he has been doing that while I deal with the email, tweets, Facebook messages and blog comments which have invariably accumulated during the meal. Yeah, social media is time-consuming!! And so is love!
