{ tin heart found on ground}
I made a cup of tea earlier and when I poured the water over the bag the hot water forced part of the bag down and part of it up forming a heart out of the tea bag. It was so neat.

It seems everywhere I go I see hearts. In the clouds and once I saw a tin heart shaped from a bubble gum foil laying on the ground while walking the dogs.
I see hearts, but I often wonder if I feel hearts as good as I see them. Do you feel the hearts around you? Sometimes people around us are suffering in silence. They are suffering from a sadness that can't seem to shake. Maybe a broken heart. Loneliness, grief, despair, lack of friends.

Those are all ailments of hearts.

We need to love those around us. We can make a difference. Even if it is a phone call, sending someone a card. Making someone dinner.
Love ....the....answer.
