When all of the remedies and all of the rhetorical armor have been dropped, the absence of love in our lives is what makes them seem raw and unfinished. —Ingrid Bengis—

Love soothes, encourages, inspires. It enhances our wholeness, both when we give it and when we receive it.

Without the expression of love we are severed from our family and friends. It’s the bond that strengthens each of us, giving us the courage to tackle what’s lying ahead. We need not wait for someone else’s expression of love before

giving it. Loving must be unconditional. And when it is, it will be returned tenfold.

Loving attracts itself, and it will heal us, soften the hard edges of our lives, and open us up to
receive the blessings that others’ gratitude will foster. It’s such a simple thing asked of us–to love one another. Unconditional love of our sisters, our lovers, and our children breaks down the barriers to our achievements
and theirs. Loving frees us to enjoy life. It energizes us and makes all goals attainable. We carry God’s message

through our love of one another. I am charged with only one responsibility today: to love someone, dearly and wholly.
