Happy Valentine's Day To All~

Today is a special day of love so, I thought I would share my list of love thoughts~
1. My first love is of course, my wonderful Eternal Companion. He makes everyday a special day of loving him. I know and feel his profound love for me.  He is amazing. 
2. I love beyond measure each of my Children, their wonderful spouses, all my 32 Grandchildren and four Great Grandchildren. They are my life's greatest gifts. 

3. My love expands to all of our Brothers, Sisters, Aunt, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews and Cousins. We number quite a few.
4. We have a special little dog named Sammy whom I adore. I love him like unto a child; and he acts like one too. 

5. I have a multitude of friends that I love. I have a group of High School friends that I share a special bond with they are friends forever. I have various friends that I have made in the different areas we have lived that I will love always. I have Social Media friends that have brightened my life with their thoughts and many of whom I hope to meet someday. I love them all.
6. I love all the missionaries that we serve with both the younger Elders and Sisters and the MLS couples that we intermingle with. I love the leadership in our mission. We have the best mission ever here in the Utah Salt Lake South Mission. 
7. A special love is reserved for each of the individuals and families that we work with on our mission. Their life stories and concerns have helped me have a deeper understanding of love, forgiveness and compassion. 
8. I love The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and all of the leadership and individuals that I have had the privileged to serve with over the years. I love our living Prophet, President Thomas S. Monson and our beloved twelve Apostles. 

I have a deep and eternal love for my Heavenly Parents and my Elder brother Jesus Christ. 
I can say with all my heart that I love the people of this world because I know they are my spirit brothers and sisters. 

May you all have a spectacular day of celebrating the word love. "Love One Another;" What a marvelous world we would have if we could just do that. Someday, we will have a more loving world.

"Love Is The Very Essence Of Life"~ by Pres. Gordon B. Hinckley

Love is in the air during the magical month of February. I love this month. I love all the messages of love, the Valentines, the Chocolates, and just the feeling of love that surrounds us in our everyday life. If we can just feel this love in our relationships in our families; wouldn't that be so wonderful. We can be part of making these feelings of love happen. Even nature shows off it's feelings of love as these two love birds swim together. I love how the first signs of spring often occur in this wonderful month of love; showing us that there is a gift of love and warmth coming.  
I love knowing that I have a loving Heavenly Father who knows each of us and loves us all. I love my Savior Jesus Christ with all my heart and I know He loves me and each of you. 
"Though we are incomplete, God loves us completely. Though we are imperfect, He loves us perfectly. Though we may feel lost and without compass, God’s love encompasses us completely." --President Uchtdorf

"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." ~ President Gordon B. Hinckley His full message can be found here. 
This is 4 days late but here is a marvelous challenge for us all! The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints has issued a 14 -Day Challenge to Love One Another. Let's all do it!
