Today – and everyday for that matter – is the perfect time to tell everyone who has a place in your heart what they mean to you.
Today I called my parents to tell them I love them; I sent greetings to all six of my siblings and my cherished friends. Telling people what they mean to you is a natural high; it makes you feel alive!

So, go for it – make a phone call, send a note. Let someone know they matter to you. It’s better than any drug out there (I’m assuming, of course). 🙂
