    My Life's Lesson

      You have taught me a very important lesson with our relationship.  I've learned that love is a whole lot more than flowers, holding hands, and candlelight. It's sticking together during those times when you're short on patience and confidence. It means believing in...

    Love Connects

    I believe that we are all connected and that we all have plenty of love to share . Love matters and we need to spread it around. If I can do something to help someone out, help them feel better or feel good, then I need to do it and to do that I need to not be thinking of my own...
