The Look of Love

Valentine's Day always seems to bring out the best in people. 
 What could be better than expressing feelings of love and gratitude to your friends and family?

To my friends and family:

  Thank you for being a part of my life. 
 I'm a better person for knowing you.
I love and appreciate you.
I'm grateful for your love and generosity. 
 I hope our love for each other will continue to grow
 and that we can always inspire each other to goodness.

Gordon B. Hinckley said:

"Love is of the very essence of life. It is the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. Yet it is more than the end of the rainbow. Love is at the beginning also, and from it springs the beauty that arches across the sky on a stormy day. Love is the security for which children weep, the yearning of youth, the adhesive that binds marriage, and the lubricant that prevents devastating friction in the home; it is the peace of old age, the sunlight of hope shining through death. How rich are those who enjoy it in their associations with family, friends, church, and neighbors.
I am one who believes that love, like faith, is a gift of God."

 To me, you are gifts of God.
