It does not happen all the time, but sometimes a person can love someone else so much, that the natural tendency to notice and be annoyed by flaws is outweighed by the strong affection residing deep inside.
We all notice flaws in people that we care about.
But when people love one another,
With the love that says, “Not My Will”
They discover an ingredient.
Rare, priceless, this ingredient facilitates their ability to tolerate what others would not.
And that is why some say love is blind.
But I say that true love is not blind.
I say true love sees, all too clearly.
And accepts their beloved as they are –
At face value –
That just like rivers,
And even the face of a mountain,
The human heart can change
If I did not believe that,
I would simply despair of life.
I would even despair over my self.
