Today, I received this poster along with a newsletter of sorts from Patti Digh. Patti is the author of many books including one titled "Love is a Verb". Patti lives in Asheville, North Carolina, a place close to my heart. And because a verb is "an action word" what a better way to make something happen than by taking this action: loving.

It's always easier to put the blame on someone else for what has happened in ones life but today, I am doing what Patti says and taking action in regards to love. I am reaching out to anyone in my past that I have harmed and not asking for forgiveness or to fix things; I am only saying "I love you." I think that the Beatle's had it right when they said in their song "All you need is love". And as Patti says here: "When in doubt, love." Because in the end all the cars, all the money, all the clothes and jewelry, all the land and homes, all the boats and trailers, all the fancy wine in the fancy wine cellar, all the steaks in the freezer won't matter. All we are left with is LOVE. So, I am taking advantage of this day where love is honored and money is spent showing others by buying cards and flowers. I am taking this moment with all I have really: my words. And I am saying "I love you." "Forever".


  1. Teri you have the best attitude!!!! happy Valentine's Day sweet friend! Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

  2. I enjoy Patti's writing. Love IS a verb!

  3. I like this post. It's important to stop the blame and put old loves into perspective. They all have value.

  4. Perfect perspective and worth the effort.
