Dear God, originator of the concept of love, thank you that we can all share lessons learned with one another. This might be construed as an action of the second greatest commandment, love our neighbor as ourselves, shared by Jesus the Christ. You give us so very many ways to love our neighbors. Thank you for all the love, forgiveness, listening, counsel and compassion our neighbors have given to us by allowing you to live through them. Amen.
