Love"A heart is not measured by how much you love but by how much you are loved by others".
I disagree with the scarecrow on this one. I think your heart is measured precisely by how much you love. There's a wonderful line in the film "Marvin's Room" where two middle-aged sisters are talking. One has left home to get get married and bring up a family, while the other has stayed to look after her elderly father and aunt. The sister who stayed tries to explain to the one that left: "I've had such love in my life". The other sister says, yes, the father and aunt love her very much and she says, no, that's not what she meant. "I mean that I love them. I have been so lucky to love someone so much".
I have been so lucky to have been able to love my babies, each and every one of them. My love for them is not dependent on them loving me back. And no mother of five could have more love in her heart than I have for my darling, wonderful boys.
However, I'm definitely with the scarecrow on this one:
"Some people without brains do an awful lot of talking".
