greatest thing

"the greatest thing you'll ever learn is just to love, and be loved in return" -moulin rouge

"and all the law and the prophets are summed up in these two things.. love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength; and love your neighbor as yourself." (paraphrase)

isn't love grand?
i was thinking this weekend about how blessed i've been.
i have two parents who love each other, and who would do anything for their kids.
i have a sister who i consider my best friend.
i have a handful of people in life who know me better than i know myself, and they love me more than anyone else..

intimacy. to be fully known and fully loved.. not love in spite of what is known, but loved more because of what is known.

it's a wonderful feeling. and it doesn't come along everyday.
