First of all. Happy Valentines day to Hubby! After all these years you're still my Valentine!!!
Also! Happy Valentines Day to my readers! I hope that you all are having a great day.
You may be wishing your sweetheart a great Happy Valentines day or you may just be hugging your cat, either way this is a great day to understand how much we appreciate those we love, be they man or beast. :)
In this busy world of working and paying bills, we have to take these little moments to look around and be thankful for what we have. When we find that our heart is fuller than our pocketbooks, then we must be inventive.
Maybe we can offer a hug, or a kiss, or a coupon that says I'll fix supper or wash dishes, or for you married folks it may be a bit more personal.. :) Maybe you're not married and you're looking over to a chair where your favorite pet is snoozing. Take your bundle of fur out for a walk or make them a special treat.
No matter what you do today, be thankful for those you love in your life, try to show someone or several someones that you care they are around and that you appreciate them. If you have face book give them a virtual hug. If you tweet or blog give those you love a special mention or share a photo.
There is all kinds of things that we can do that won't cost a dime, and after all Valentines day is not about who gets the biggest bunch of flowers, its about showing each other that we really do care, that we remember what brought us to where we are today. And most of all it's about being thankful that we sill have our loved ones, be they of the human variety or the fuzzy variety . . . we're still happy that their around and in our hearts and in our lives.
So go hug someone special and tell them that you love them.
