The greatest need of all, after the needs of food, clothing and shelter are satisfied, is to be cherished by someone. To know that in a special someone’s heart we have a home we can count on.
Material goals are perceived as necessary in civilization today. But if that is true, it doesn’t then explain all the divorces, over-eating, over indulging in those very same material goals that obviously aren’t doing the trick, only achieving short term happiness along with a lot of unhappy, unfulfilled, sick and miserable people out there.
Do you cherish someone? Let them know. And let them know you need to be cherished too? Today! It’s important, it matters!
“Truly cherishing and being cherished is at the “heart” of what love is all about.”
Penny L Howe, 2014
And just so you know, I cherish you, “my worldwide friends” more than you can ever imagine. You matter and I don’t forget it – not for a nanosecond!
With love and affection,

You know you are cherished by me, my dear. We seem like Peter affirming his love for Christ after being asked, only to turn around and betray him. But unlike Peter, we won’t betray you. 🙂 xoxoxo!
Thank you Celestine. I wish we could meet in person. That would be so wonderful, but you are in my heart. I agree with your words. Why say one thing and then do the opposite. 🙂 xoxo
