All your friends from the Garden of Friendship wanted to make sure that you had a special day....so here is all of our gifts to you.

Love Can Last Forever

Love is the strongest and most fulfilling emotion possible.
It lets you share your goals, your desires, your experiences
It lets you share your life with someone.
It let you be yourself with someone who will always support you.
It lets you speak your innermost feelings to someone who understands you.

It lets you feel tenderness and warmth ~ a wholeness that avoids loneliness.
Love let you feel complete
But in order to have a lasting love relationship,
you must make a strong commitment to each other and love,
and you must do and feel everything within your mind and bodyto make this commitment work.

You must be happy with yourself and you must understand yourself,
before you can expect someone else
to be happy with you or to understand you.
You must be honest about yourself and each other at all times
and not hold any feelings back.
You must accept each other the way you are and not try to change each other.
You must be free to grow as individuals yet share your life as one
but not live your life through each other.

You must follow your own principles and morals
and not follow what societal roles tell you to do.
You must believe that men and women are equal
and that neither person should be made to feel inferior in any way.
In order to have a lasting love relationship
you must be together always in your heart
but not necessarily always in your activities.

You must be proud of each other and love
and not be ashamed to show your sensitive feelings.
You must treat every day spent with each other as special
and not take each other for granted.
You must spend time talking with each other every day
and not be too busy with outside events
that you are too tired for each other.

You must understand each other's moods and feelings
and not hurt each other intentionally,
but if your frustrations are taken out on each other
you must both realize that it is not a personal attack.
You must be passionate with each other often and not get into boring patterns.
You must continue to have fun and excitement with each other
and not be afraid to try new things.

You must always work at love and your love relationship
and not forget how important this relationship is
or what you would feel like without it.
Love is the strongest and most fulfulling emotion possible
If you commit yourself to love
love can last forever if you want it to and I do.
