Is just to love and be loved in return.

Love is a force more formidable than any other. It is invisible—it cannot be seen or measured, yet it is powerful enough to transform you in a moment, and offer you more joy than any material possession could.

I love that you spend some of your precious time and energy reading and savoring these weekly splashes.
I love that you occasionally let me know when a particular issue resonates or troubles you.
I love that you forgive the typos and the quotes that don’t connect with your heart the way others do.
I love that you submit quotes to consider for future rippling.
I love that you forward Ripples on to family and friends and colleagues.
I love that you strive to put Ripples into action in ways that elevate yourself and those around you.
I love that we don’t have to agree on every single thing in order to come together for a minute every Monday morning.
I love that you open up your heart as you read them, and that you encourage me to open mine when I’m assembling them.
I love you, and I love us.
