4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7 It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Most days you protect your loved on in a thousands ways from falling, from harm, from everything. Then there are those days you really have to protect them from well-intentioned but boundary-less others. Those days are the really, really hard ones.
