In the past few years, I’ve seen some amazing people do some very amazing things. I admire them, I am in awe of them. I’ve watched a daughter survive on two hours of sleep a night, for months at a time, caring for her dying mother, her husband, and her son. This, because of love. This, because her love was stronger than any physical needs she may have had. She showed me how powerful love is.
I’ve seen so many people do such things, and I cannot even conceive of how they managed to do what they did. I don’t know if I could do it, although I hope I would.
Thanks to all of those people who showed me the invincible, awesome power of love, which gives the strength to do that which is impossible; they showed me that what we think we cannot possibly do, we can do, with the power of love. Thanks for those gifts they gave me, in showing me that. I will be forever grateful.
