February 4th - Love without limits
The measure of love is to love without measure.
Francis de Sales
The greatest way that we can show we care for our friends and family is by showing how much we love them. Love is shown in many ways, but mainly it is made evident by our encouraging words and acts. Letting them know that they can come to us at any time whether they have succeeded or failed brings comfort to their hearts because they will know that our love is unconditional.
Loving others shouldn't be based upon what they do for us or how successful they are in life, but rather our love for them should be steady and unwavering. It will not change with the seasons and it will never lessen.
May we grow in awareness of others by noticing when someone is unhappy, sensing when there’s something wrong for somebody, seeing when someone feels cut off or isolated, knowing when to say the right word, expressing thanks and compliments, being thoughtful when someone is ill, giving words of encouragement, helping someone to feel welcome, and by realizing when someone needs the opportunity to talk.
We can accomplish more together than we can alone.
