VALENTINES AREN'T JUST FOR LOVERS

There was a time when I thought that Valentine's Day was just for lovers, for the young, for those who were married. Now I look at Valentine's Day as a reminder that we should love each and every day fully.


I have lost a lot of people in my life. My two best friends from college, and my best friend in California, among others. So today I will use this day to remind myself to embrace each day and to love the life that I have. 

Tonight my grandchildren will be calling to talk to me. What greater Valentine gift can there be. 

Happy Valentine's Day sweet friends. May today and every day  be filled with simple and serene love.

  10. I think Valentines Day is a way to tell people you love that you love them. It doesn't have to be just for couples. I hope that you had a nice one yesterday.
