How Do I Love Thee....

How do I love thee? Let me count the ways.
I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
My soul can reach, when feeling out of sight
For the ends of Being and ideal Grace.
I love thee to the level of everyday's
Most quiet need, by sun and candle-light.
I love thee freely, as men strive for Right;
I love thee purely, as they turn from Praise.
I love thee with a passion put to use
In my old griefs, and with my childhood's faith.
I love thee with a love I seemed to lose
With my lost saints, --- I love thee with the breath,
Smiles, tears, of all my life! --- and, if God choose,
I shall but love thee better after death.

~Elizabeth Barrett Browning



Trevor and I watched this video yesterday. We loved it. Watch it here.

For now, I have a dinner to make, a lesson to prepare (on love, of course!) and a house to clean. I have something special in mind for my family tonight and I can't wait!

Happy Valentines Day!!!
