Observations on Becoming~ July 25

Remember Love
Sometimes, with our family and close friends, we forget why we "deal with them". We forget the foundation for our relationship (in family at least). That is, LOVE. We forget how much we love them, so we begin to take them for granted, become impatient and less tolerant, and begin to wonder, if we care-what's at the root of this? I personally believe that a lack of love is. No, let me rephrase that. A forgetfulness of love. Because no matter how irritable we can be with our family, we still love them, no matter how irritable they can be with us :p But when we take the time to remember love, things become a bit easier, we become more forgiving, and the "deal with these people" becomes a "live and learn with my loved ones". Ok, maybe it isn't so smooth and easy as that, but you get my point :)
This is also applicable in our relationship with HaShem. We can, and do, become too busy, and we forget the root of it all-Him. And He is love. Don't forget- don't forget-don't forget. And if you do- remember. Remember Love.
