  1. Right now, my one another looks like me preparing the New Year’s meal and me and my peeps watching tv. All of us sick but still trying to take care of one another (I’ll go get the oj this time, next time you go get the tissues, we’ll all pour each other doses of cough syrup)…lol it’s a pitiful sight but it’s love. I don’t think we can display this “one another” without love. We need each other and the sooner we accepted it, the easier it is to love
