unconditional love

6:30 AM

If you want to learn a lot about yourself, go to a crowded summer festival in the South.  This will show you just how patient and tolerant you really are (or aren't).  I don't do well in crowds or heat, but I always want to go to festivals and fairs to give them a chance.  I knew I would end up feeling tired or snappy.  I knew I would quickly lose my patience and wonder why I ever left bed, as many anxious introverts do after a long day.  I don't like that I'm like this and I do my best to keep a handle on it, but it's difficult to do sometimes.

That's not what this post is about, though.  What it's really about is how amazing it is to know that you are unconditionally loved by wonderful people.  Paul reminded me that I was being snappy and then continued to enjoy the festival.  He could have easily let my weird mood ruin our time or get snappy at me in return, but he knew that that wouldn't make the situation better.  He knows how I get and he knows that I try to handle it.  He knows how I will react to what he says and does.  And he still loves me regardless of how I act or why I'm acting that way.  I have not once felt as if Paul didn't love me during a certain situation, regardless of what it was.  That is the best thing about our relationship, and I hope that I show him my unconditional love just as well as he shows it to me.
