i am in love with love,
how it sparkles when you shine a light on it.
i am head over heels 
for sloppy toddler kisses,
smiles exchanged between strangers,
a sweet note from a faraway friend.
my heart skips a beat with
a hug in the mall from my hubby,
a toothless grin from my little pipsqueak,
oodles of holiday cards in the mailbox.
i feel filled up
by giving gifts that have meaning,
by seeing human kindness in action,
by saying “i love you” to the loves of my life.
have you heard?
all you need is love.
(p.s. the happy heART giveaway is on hiatus for the holidays!)
