The love of a friend, a child, a parent, a spouse, a pet -
all of these are wondersome gifts.
The smile from a stranger, the hug from a companion, the note that makes you grin -
all of these are love made visible.
The fact that children laugh each day, and you can join them;
that people hold hands, and it can melt your heart;
that all of life is a miracle, and you are here to see it -
all of these are proof of love.
May you know today and every day
just how much you are loved.
Happy Valentine's Day, friends!
Look at that picture. Pure joy that bubbles out in laughter. This is why I teach.
