Valentine’s Day. It’s a day that is set aside every year to celebrate love. Not only love between husbands and wives, girlfriends and boyfriends, partners and lovers, but it extends to our children, mothers, fathers, friends and family.
Can you imagine if this kind of love was celebrated every day? If we just took the time to stop and appreciate the love we have and the love that we have to give, there would be less time to think about hate and anger.
I love Valentine’s Day because you can truly feel the happiness and positive energy all around us. Everyone is thinking about someone else and not themselves today. We are planning lovely little surprises, or intimate dinners, or just feeling content knowing that we have people who we love, and who love us, in our lives. It’s a day the involves everyone, young, middle aged and the elderly. We all participate. We all celebrate love. I think that folk singer and song writer Stephen Stills said it best, “If you can’t be with the one you love, love the one your with”
