I woke up this morning to a beautiful sunrise! I am grateful every morning that I am blessed to see another day. The sun is so bright filtering through my curtains. Today just seems perfect. Happy St. Valentine’s Day! Have you ever looked at the history of what most people are calling a Hallmark holiday? Emperor Claudius the second actually executed two men named Valentine on February 14. I know that is seems like doom and gloom. I just find it interesting how things are the way they are. There are many speculations as to what the men named Valentine did in their lifetime. The emperor killed them for wedding Christian couples in the 1400’s. So, maybe that is another reason that Valentine’s Day is a day of love? I think that we have many reasons to celebrate love and connections. Love comes in many forms. We can go out into this world today and love one another just by being kind. Hold a door for a stranger or simply smile at people you come in contact with. These acts of kindness don’t cost you anything except for your effort. That effort is worth a lot more than any money in the world. The one thing a person can give and never get back is their time. I feel many people in this world don’t value their time or account for it as precious. If you want to show someone you care for them, spend time with them. It isn’t about what you own, how big your bank account is, it is about the intangibles you give. The most valuable things on this Earth cannot be measured. Take the time to share your thoughts with another person. Take the time to chat face to face. These are the moments you will remember. Have a beautiful St. Valentine’s Day!!!!!!!!!!!!
