Happy Valentine's Day

It matters not to me that Valentine's Day is not a "real" holiday and that it is heavily commercialized...I love that much of the world stops for a brief moment to appreciate those they love.  And hey...why not add some red and pink goodness to an otherwise dreary February.

If I can speak beautifully and sing like an angel, but don't love others, I sound like a child banging on a piano or a screeching radio.  If I'm very smart--almost a genius--but don't love others, I am nothing.

LOVE will stand in line and wait its turn.
LOVE looks for the good in others.
LOVE doesn't always want what others have, and it doesn't brag about what it does have.
LOVE is polite, even when the other person is rude.
LOVE doesn't have to be first.
LOVE doesn't get angry over small things, and it doesn't remember one reason after another to be hurt.
LOVE isn't happy when someone else fails but is happy with the truth.
LOVE will always protect others, especially those who are often picked on or teased.
LOVE always believes the best about others and is steady and true.

Love never gives up.
