True love is brave. Because it is self-sacrificial.

There are people in this world much braver than me. I’m not talking about soldiers, police officers, or firefighters (though many of them are, and I’ve done two of those professions).

I’m talking about the mother who gives up her life to take care of an infirm child. And does so without bitterness (though she may feel frustrated at times). She is, above all else, thankful. And an angel to her child.

Those are the real heroes. They don’t get paid. They don’t receive glory. They work for love, and they are closer to it than anyone.
