I used to think Valentine's Day was really important. It was a wonderful opportunity to be told I was loved. After I separated from my husband I found Valentine's Day difficult. When in another relationship, I didn't want to make too much of a fuss on Valentine's Day. By the following Valentine's Day, I was alone, yet again. I was back to thinking that Valentine's Day was a silly waste of everyone's time.
The commercialisation of the day irks me a little. Today, I'm not going to go on a rant about the ridiculous behaviour and amount of spending that people indulge in on this particular day. Instead, I have something else to say...
True Love can not be expressed in a greeting card
or the purchase of chocolates and flowers.
True Love is more than words and money.
True Love is rare. True Love is more than sex or romance.
True Love is a thousand acts of kindness, a million choices
to serve or sacrifice or simply be second.
True Love is yours if only you will share it.
Okay, one last thing...
Today, by all means, celebrate the ones you love and show them what they mean to you, but more importantly, Be Kind.
It's quite simple really, so simple that you can do it everyday! Be Kind.
Just, Be Kind.
Be Kind Everyday!
