Nothing shapes my sense of life and living so much as love in all its various forms.

Funny, how we use the same word to link us with our parents and grandparents, that we use to link us with our children and grandchildren. We use this word for the romantic connections and for the platonic.

What does it really mean when I say “I love you?” I barely scratch the surface when I say it means that you bring meaning to my life. It means that I define myself in part by our relationship with each other. It means you ground me and you help me soar high and I hope I do the same to you.

To my greatest loves, my husband of nearly thirty years, and my daughters, you make my life rich beyond words. To my parents, my sisters, and all my family and friends, thank you for enriching my life.

Happy Valentine’s Day,
