“Love doesn’t make the world go round. Love is what makes the ride worthwhile.” – Franklin P. Jones
If you’re like me, you have several special Valentines in your life…your sweetheart, your children, your parents, sisters, brothers, best friends and others who make your life generally….well..sweeter! Sweetheart is defined as a “term of endearment”, and while my family and friends make up the bulk of my ‘sweethearts’, I also count Meredith among them!
For Meredith will always have a special, endearing place in my life; a place that gave me wonderful friendships, a once in a lifetime learning experience and the chance to grow and mature in a way that made me unafraid to take risks later on in life.
So, this year, as you buy your valentines a card or box of candy, don’t forget to give Meredith a little valentine too, preferably with a little special something included. Give an online Valentine gift to Meredith in honor of one of your professors or your roommate or best friend, or ‘just because’… To make an online contribution to the annual fund, please click here.
