Ways to say "I Love You"

It's almost Valentine's Day, and we have come to think of only this day as LOVE day but instead, I am suggesting that we think of EVERYDAY as an opportunity to put a little love in the world. There is an old saying that goes something like this, "Love doesn't make the world go round, but it sure makes the ride worth while."

This Valentine's Day, remember that there are various ways to say, I love you. Teach someone to read. Sit a while with someone who is lonely. Volunteer. Compliment someone. Listen to what someone has to say. Visit a friend who is sick. Tell someone you are thinking about them. Be a role model. Use your money generously. Walk for what you believe in—peace, breast cancer research and life. Comfort someone when they are sad. Walk your neighbor's dog. Participate in a food drive. Bake or buy something from a bake sale. Donate the clothes you do not wear from your closet.

Doing any one of these things and you will have loved with all of your heart.
