The small courtesies sweeten life;
the greater ennoble it

My wife called me “sweetheart” a few minutes ago, as she came into the room where I was working. I teased her by asking, “Why are you calling me sweetheart?”

“Because you are,” she answered.

The beauty of the word really came through to me for the first time.  For someone to be a sweetheart in your life is an incredible gift.  We are more often dealing with broken hearts and chest pains instead of something that sweetens the life experience of the heart.

A life full of sweethearts would be good for anyone’s health.  Stop and think about all the people in your life who are your sweet hearts and notice how your body feels when you do this.  If you can’t think of anyone, don’t blame the world.  Take responsibility and go sweeten some hearts for your sake and theirs.

See how many people you can be a sweetheart to today, and remember; no artificial sweeteners allowed.
