SARAH WRIGHT OLSON

Actress born - Louisville, KY

“Love is the person you think of when you skin your knee. That three a.m. cuddle when you can’t sleep. Love is sharing a donut you waited all day to eat. Love is seeing your baby for the first time, it’s the birth of a mother covered in sweat, forgetting every moment that led to the one where her baby is in her arms. Love is making sacrifices, it’s selfless. Love can burst through a door and take you by suprise, but can also grow slowly over time. Love is comforting and kind, it is open and accepts. Love empathizes and understands. Love breeds love. It is the purest most uncontrollable feeling. We are born with love,it can change us, unite us and make us grow. In the words of a folk song my son likes to sing, Love is something if you give it away, you end up having more.
