Love … a little four-letter word that can rule us and caused us all to enter into holy matrimony, right? Have you ever tried to explain exactly what love is?

The dictionary definition of Love:

Noun –“an intense feeling of deep affection.”
Verb –“to feel a deep romantic or sexual attraction to (someone).”
That emotional word “feel” is emphasized in both of these definitions.

When I was a young newlywed I was very emotional.  My husband used to say that my emotions could range from happy to sad in a matter of seconds.  This was true and could be draining.
