Happy Valentines Day

“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of every day’s
Most quiet need; by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with the passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood’s faith
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints,–I love thee with the breath.
Smiles, tears, of all my life!–and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.”

Elizabeth Barrnett Browning

Don’t forget to tell those around you that you love- that you do love them and to have a Happy Valentine’s Day!

    Well if I felt better I might kick up my heels some but I don’t so…when Linda gets home we will quietly spend the evening and go to bed early (she is sick to).
