What Is True?

Yesterday's question in my five year Q&A journal stood tall and called out to my heart...

What is true?

Seems like a simple question, but all the answers you think you have for it can tangle up quickly. Somehow they seem too contrived, too cliché or just not true at all. 

I sat on that simple three-worded question for a solid five minutes. Then I found my answer. After all, it was squatting on two dimpled legs right in front of me, toothy grin and all.


Love is the purest, truest thing I know. After being alive for a short, but incredibly full 25 years, I realize I don't know much, but I know quite a bit about love. I know it by the friendly voice at the other end of the line greeting me when I ring up my parents for a chat. I know it by my crazy family and friends sticking around even when I've been a total pain up the wahoo and walking away would have been the easy way out. I know it by the hugs Matt and I share at the end of a long work day and the fulfilled look in his eyes as he watches Luke and I goofing around and sharing our silly jokes. I know it by the surge of overwhelming joy I felt as I heard Luke's first cry upon entering our world and by the smiles, tears, belly laughs and moments we've spent simply in each other's embrace since.

Yes, love is true.

Wholeheartedly agree. To me, the sheer love and devotion children and pets give is amazing. They put all their trust in it and you. Love the pics as well!

I'm actually trying to find out how to return something I ordered from your store. Every time I try to get into your shop the past few days it says it is under maintenance, and I would really like to return my item. Please let me know how to go about this. My email is thomson.le@gmail.com

Thank you!
