to celebrate

Every now and them my wife and I will be laying on the couch watching TV.  She will tickle me, then I will tickle here and then within thirty seconds it is an all out war.  I don’t know if there has ever been a time when my wife is bending my fingers back to keep me from tickling her and I am laughing like crazy.  When this happens in an off sort of way, I feel like we are celebrating each other.

The fourth aspect of love is to celebrate.  To laugh, to play to simply have fun with someone is to celebrate him or her.  We celebrate the people we love.   Every person needs to know that they are a source of joy to the rest of the world.  To celebrate is not to idealize but to accept.  When you accept someone in all of their weaknesses then their true humanity can be revealed.

How do you celebrate people?  How do you let others know that you cherish them and that they bring you joy?  Celebrate someone today.
