A Valentine's Day Wish for my sons:
Be fools for love, my little friends.
Open your heart to the possibility of pain and joy.
Throw your arms wide enough to embrace the world and if that exposes your tenderest parts, and if those tenderest parts are wounded, know that they will heal.
And when your broken heart heals, it will heal bigger and stronger for having loved in the first place.
In short, love the world as I love you.
