What does it mean to sacrifice for love?

Friend -- If my parents could have moved mountains for me, our world would look much different. There are too many stories that tell me so. One that comes to mind is when my mother, an immigrant from Guadalajara, Mexico, let go of her small business -- the dream she had built and nurtured daily for 15 years -- during the financial crisis so that our family could be assured some financial stability. Her business, a children's clothing store, had taken a hit, but she could have hung on to see it through -- instead, she let it all go to take a steady job and keep us afloat. I've never owned a small business, but I saw up close how much of herself my mother invested in that place. It wasn't the first dream she had to let go of -- but that's a story for later. Tell us about a time when you witnessed someone make a sacrifice out of love for someone else. Did a family member do something for you at a cost to themselves? Did you see a friend make a hard choice for his or her family? Or maybe you sacrificed something for a person you love. Why was that so meaningful? What does it mean to sacrifice for love?

Friend --

If my parents could have moved mountains for me, our world would look much different.

There are too many stories that tell me so.

One that comes to mind is when my mother, an immigrant from Guadalajara, Mexico, let go of her small business -- the dream she had built and nurtured daily for 15 years -- during the financial crisis so that our family could be assured some financial stability.

Tell us about a time when you witnessed someone make a sacrifice out of love for someone else. Did a family member do something for you at a cost to themselves? Did you see a friend make a hard choice for his or her family? Or maybe you sacrificed something for a person you love. Why was that so meaningful?

What does it mean to sacrifice for love?
