39 Ways to Love Others

39 Ways to Love Others

Although it’s not Valentine’s Day yet, we wanted to get you thinking about the holiday and how love and appreciation can be translated into your community work.  While giving others a Valentine once a year is definitely a nice gesture, finding ways to show them how much you love and appreciate them on a regular basis should be what you strive for daily.  Consider involving your children and  apply your creative energy to think of new ways to accomplish loving others daily.  Remember, love tends to bring separate people together; love is sharing and caring;  love unites us; and love is your willingness to share yourself.
