“Love’s greatest gift is its ability to make everything it touches sacred.” —Barbara de Angelis
“Everybody can be great… because anybody can serve. You don’t have to have a college degree to serve. You don’t have to make your subject and verb agree to serve, you only need a heart full of grace, a soul generated by love.” — Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.
“The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and richness to life that nothing else can bring. ” — Oscar Wilde (1854-1900) Irish Dramatist and Poet
1. Write a love letter. Yes, an “old fashioned” love letter straight from the heart and in your own handwriting.
2. Instead of cut flowers give a plant. A nice potted miniature rose will last for years to come (hopefully) reminding your loved one of you. Remember ladies, men also like to receive flowers.
3. Start your loved one’s car on a cold winter morning. Nothing says love more than getting outside on a cold winter morning to scrape the windshield.
4. Write love notes on the steamy bathroom mirror.
5. Lend an ear when your loved one needs to talk. People need to feel that they are being heard.
6. A handmade card or gift. Know the recipient here. Some people love handmade, others don’t.
7. A back, shoulder, or foot rub. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh.
8. Hold hands while walking. This isn’t just for teenagers. “Old folks” like Bob and I still hold hands — in public even.
9. Write a love poem. Serious, silly, something only the two of you understand, it doesn’t really matter. It’s the thought that counts.
10. Say thank you. The two most important words in the English language yet we never say them enough.
“Love is an act of endless forgiveness, a tender look which becomes a habit.” ~Peter Ustinov
“Love one another and you will be happy. It’s as simple and as
difficult as that.” ~Michael Leunig
“Spread love everywhere you go. Let no one ever come to you without leaving happier.” —Mother Teresa
“My friends, love is better than anger. Hope is better than fear. Optimism is better than despair. So let us be loving, hopeful and optimistic. And we’ll change the world.” — Jack Layton
“Keep love in your heart. A life without it is like a sunless garden when the flowers are dead. The consciousness of loving and being loved brings a warmth and richness to life that nothing else can bring.”— Oscar Wilde
