February 16th - Love is marvelous
It is good to be loved, but it is even better to love.
Have you ever been on the outside looking in? Too many people have experienced life as the outcast, the odd ball. Sometimes their predicament flows from personal choices, sometimes it’s imposed by forces out of their control. Sometimes it’s unfulfilled wishes, sometimes it’s the results of prejudice.
No one likes to feel left out. We all need other people. We can love, support, help, and encourage them, and they can do the same for us. They help us to look at look out at the world with joy, with gratitude and with love for all that is. Sharing my feelings or remembering the brighter side of life with a trusted friend can really lighten my heart.
