Love With Abandon

Many years ago, our Pastor/Friend used this expression: "Love With Abandon."  Three words - yet they spoke volumes to me.  

Abandon is defined as "freedom from constraint or conventionality."

When I saw a plaque with the words shown below, I asked, (and hinted, and reminded) my dear hubby that I really wanted it for Christmas that year.  {It now hangs in our kitchen!  He's a really good hint-taker...}

Live each day.
* as if there's no tomorrow.
* do the best you can with what you're given.
* dance like no one's watching.
* sing like no one's listening.

Forgive everything.
* everything.
* not just the convenient stuff.
* not just the little things.

Love with abandon.
* tell the people you love that you love them.
 * don't hold back.
* don't hesitate.
* don't wait.
* tell them more than once.
* do it again tomorrow.
* and the next day.
