Valentine's Day can be romantic and shared between lovers. Some plan a romantic evening or get-away. Some plan to surprise the other with an engagement ring. Some plan to be married. Whatever the event, it's usually romantic.
I propose a different spin on Valentine's Day. Show an outward appreciation to a friend who is always there for you no matter the circumstances. Tell someone they are special for who they are. Tell a child what's special about him or her. Hug your pets so they can feel the warmth of your love. Love Mother Nature - after all it's beauty is here for all to enjoy. I'm sure we can find love in many more places as well as within ourselves. Think about it. Do you have a love list? Do you have heartfelt love to share with those less fortunate than you? Do you realize how many loveless people there are in this world? A word of love or kindness can make all the difference. Let me hear your thoughts.
