show the love
Friday, February 14, 2014
Spread the love. Mother Teresa once said, “The most terrible poverty in the world is loneliness and the feeling of being unloved.” Show your love to those closest to you in the most meaningful way you can, but then take a moment and spread some of that love by bringing joy to someone else who also needs it. Maybe that person is an elderly neighbor who lives alone, a friend who just suffered a loss or separation, a family member who is between jobs or dealing with other issues. Pick up the phone, drop off some cookies, make a date for lunch—what’s important is that you reach out and let that person know he or she is noticed, cared for and not alone.
We met upon the Internet,
A friendship electronic,
Expressed alone in words and thoughts,
We live too far apart for us
To mingle in the flesh,
But much more close than family,
Our hearts and feelings mesh.
Your dear, dear self reveals itself
Without a voice or face.
We have our own sweet home within
Our precious cyberspace.
Happy Valentine's Day!
