My family celebrates Valentine's Day in what I assume is different than the rest of the country. Instead of only romantic love, we celebrate universal love: the love of family and friends and strangers. We remind each other that we are loved, deeply, and that each of us is individual and unique and very much appreciated for who we are. I like our little tradition quite a bit; it brings us together instead of pushing us apart due to differences in relationship status. Love brings us together. None of us feels lonely or neglected.
This weekend I want to remind you that you are loved. Taken or single, you are loved, and you are important, and you are appreciated. This weekend, I challenge you to buy yourself flowers and go on a date with yourself if you do not have a partner. Spend time with those who love you and those you love. Give and receive hugs. Leave love notes for strangers. Pass the love on!
I wish you a Valentine's Day that is filled with wonderful things, happy moments, many smiles, good surprises, and perhaps a kiss or two!
