38. Share the love

June 12, 2014

Dear Friends and Family,
..
This will be a short message this week. I’m short on words and on time. But I do just want to say… I love you. I love you all so dearly. Thank you for being who you are and for being the best you. Thank you for all you’ve taught me and continue to teach me.
.
Thank you for your strength.
..
Thank you for your humor, and patience, and the otter-pops (Teresa, Kathryn, Sharaysa), the hugs, the bassoon lessons, the piano lessons, the Sunday school lessons, the life lessons. Thank you for your examples.

I just recently saw one of the newest Mormon messages, entitled “True Christianity.” It made me cry. That’s actually not hard to do, but still, it is quite touching. In place of my lack of words this week, I just wanted to share with you the spirit of the work I’m doing here. This is it. This is a work we can all do. It is love:

So, I leave you with this. Find ways to share that love with those around you this week. It’s along the same lines of “pay it forward,” isn’t it?
.
I would invite you all to reflect (right now, later today, tomorrow, just sometime this week) on all the blessings you have received. All the miracles you have witnessed. All the acts of kindness that you have been on the receiving end of. And then go out and be that for someone else!
.
I LOVE YOU. I do. I really do.
.
Have a fabulous week. I’ll be back next week!
.
Much love and rice and beans and gratitude,
.
