Love pulls us together

Our lives are circumscribed into such a small space, but instead of a limitation, this can be seen as a gift. We are pulled into the orbit of certain places and people either through choice or by happenstance and held there by the gravity of love. All of these people make up the constellation of our lives and experiences. Sometimes, though, we forget to look up and be glad for the light with which they bless us.

Tonight tell those you love how you feel about them. Each chance to do so is precious. Do it, not because it is Valentine's Day, but because every day in which there is love should be a day you rejoice and celebrate.

So well said, Ms. C. I do my part to remind people (and myself) that we shouldn't set aside a holiday to tell those we love how dear they are to us. Thanks for adding your voice to the chorus.
