Chicken heart shaped nuggets served at school for lunch and heart shaped sugar sprinkled cookies for dessert. Outside my window where I work, puffed paper hearts made with love by the children, hanging in the corridor was my view. In the evening, after my class, a Chai tea latte to top my day.
Setting one day out of the year to celebrate love... is a shame. After all, "Love is what makes the world go round." I think we should take time to let people we care about or have crossed paths with and share how we feel about them. In that particular moment, it could be a touch, a smile or a conversation. Love grows leaps and bounds. You can see it take affect and ripple out into the universe and come back to you in folds. It can be an attitude that shapes your day... that attitude can make all the difference!
Valentines day, none the less is a day we observe love. It comes easy for some and hard for others. It could be the door that opens to a great beginning.
My husband and I got married on Valentines Day and are going strong on our 26th year of wedded bliss. We celebrate every day, but extra on February 14.
