I asked a few people in my life to share letters of love to those in their life.
To bleed out some love to anyone they felt moved to for Valentine's Day unhindered or limited to romantic love. I felt it would be important and significant and beautiful.
I hope it encourages you to write a letter or two.
To use Valentine's Day to show love, however you feel moved to.
Next up, Jimmy DeVries, a stalwart in this Toronto community and someone I deeply respect, pens a thoughtful note to his adoptive mother.
A small snippet...
I know I'm not one to write cards often but this Valentine's Day I wanted to tell you a few things.
I want to say that you are one of the most beautiful and generous people I know. You have saved me from a life that would have turned out very differently had you and your husband not adopted me.
Your heart and vision for adoption astounds me still to this day. You have always modelled strength and honour in your home. I am forever thankful for that.
Also, your passion for God and His will in your life is one of the most attractive qualities you have.
I love you very much and am glad I have you as a mother...
