A loving note can barely say all
we feel this magic day,
with loving friends at every side

cannot go so far to tell about your smile
that lit the place, showing our love
its mirrored face.

note 8


Love . . .
is patient and kind;
love is not jealous, or conceited,
or proud, or provoked;
love does not keep a record of wrongs;
love is not happy with evil,
but is pleased with the truth.
Love never gives up; its faith,
hope, and patience never fail.
Thank you for sharing with us
the precious moments of this day.
