To the world you may be one person, but to one person you may be the world.

Happy Valentine's Day Eve!
This quote is perfect, as I reflect on this past week.
Sadly, we awaken this morning to tragic news of an airplane crashing and 50 people have perished. How many of these people were the world to one person?
I was so richly blessed to watch my two daughters share a first 'play-date' with their daughters. Truly, these mommas are the world to their sweet babies.
My mom's sister, Aunt Kay at the age of 92 passed away. For nearly 60 years she has tended to the needs of my Mentally Retarded cousin, her son Jimmy. She was the world to him.
B has returned safely to U.S. soil, following a short deployment. He had adopted a mutt shortly before leaving, he is this pup's world. B is my son, he is my world.
Phil, my brother-in-law and his wife will arrive tomorrow for a long weekend visit. It will be fun to hang out, eat lots of good food and watch the Daytona 500! He is a Vietnam Vet who has earned several Purple Hearts. A few short months ago Phil was gravely ill, we were not certain he would survive. He is the world to his wife.
John passed his CDC test (Woo-Hoo)!!! He is buying a "Rust Bucket" this weekend, an old pick up truck to tinker with. John is coming home the first weekend in March, for the first time since Thanksgiving! John is my son, he is my world.
Tomorrow is Valentine's Day, the day to express love and gratitude to those we love! I bought my hubster a card, I'll tell him how much I love him and we will share kindnesses throughout the day; like every other day. Matthew is my beloved, he is my world.
Thousands of U.S. soldiers will wake tomorrow and continue to defend our flag. Each of these Airman, Soldiers, Sailors and Marines have family and friends waiting for them at home. These brave heroes are OUR world!
