Mature Love & A Bag of Lemons

Today's Prompt: Erich Fromm said, "Immature love says: I love you because I need you. Mature love says  I need you because I love you."  How do you define mature love?

Mature love is visiting a friend and her giving you a bag of fresh lemons from her lemon tree when you leave. It's knowing what holding a fresh California sun-ripened lemon will do for someone who is heading back to 19 degrees weather. Mature love is the kind of love that rarely says "I love you" but often says "thank you."
