Love endures all things!

You’ve heard the bible passage that starts, “Love is patient, love is kind…”.  The first book of Corinthians, chapter 13, is one of my favorite chapters in the bible, because it defines LOVE.  But we don’t love only because the bible tells us to, philosophers and psychologists have acknowledged that:

It is basic human nature that love  motivates us to be who we are and how we act towards each other.

When we love someone, we do everything for them, from providing for them materially to offering emotional support. Basically, we are willing to give our life for them — all because of love!

But what happens to those we love after we’re gone? We may have experienced loss personally or know someone who has. Were they prepared?  It’s hard to think about. It’s hard for ME to write about! But sooner or later we have to think about the consequences. When we’re gone, we can no longer provide for those we love without using Whoopi Goldberg to get through to them. 🙂

We can start now by planning how to support those we love, and how to provide for them long after we’re gone. There’s estate planning, wills and life insurance. These are ways that love can endure things, even after death. Yes, I am an insurance professional, but I’m a daughter, sister, niece and friend first, and I would hate for something to happen to a relative or friend, and feel like I didn’t do anything to help you prepare.  It’s never too early to start planning. Do it for those you love.

September is Life Insurance Awareness Month, so this is a good time to  work with your insurance agent or financial advisor to analyze your current situation.  And remember, your insurance needs may change as the years go by, so make this a regular practice!
