Be forever thankful for the people in your life. Cherish each relationship with love and gratitude. Seek to bring joy to those around you, for the joy you give will return to you in happiness. Be willing, when needed, to sacrifice your own desires for the good of another. This is true love and the sign of a God-filled heart.
