Valentine’s Day and Counting

Valentine’s Day is Friday and everywhere we look this week remind us about love, and so we offer this small reflection:

Recall the lines of Elizabeth Barrett Browning:

“How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.”

And in her words that follow she calls us to the beauty and intimacy of relationship in the many moments we share with our loving companion.

And so, count the ways yourself: Your love and life with the other human who is your unique special and intimate partner sharing gifts so closely in the space of your lives and hearts together filled with gratitude, wonder, depth, silence, care, security, compassion, abundance and joy. Yes, Count the many many way!
