For the Love
Author: Rebecca Knowlden
It’s the middle of February, Valentine's Day was Tuesday of this week and everywhere you look there are red hearts and roses, cupids and chocolates. Seems like a perfect time to talk about loved ones. Our spouse and children, our family and closest friends. This is the time when we are reminded to look outwardly and express the love we have for special people in our lives.
I know that the greeting card industry has us focusing on the romantic side of the equation, but maybe this is also a good time to think about all the other people in life that are special too. Maybe they are parents of your child’s friend, or a helpful teacher that shows extra attention to your child, maybe it’s your neighbor that really supports you, even when you are a mess. Maybe it’s someone that encourages you to hang in there and look for the good in life, or just someone who gives you that hug at the perfect time. You know who they are.
Do you take the time to recognize these people, and show them how much they mean to you? I think an old fashioned note card in the mail is a tangible way to share your feelings. Who doesn’t enjoy getting a personal note in the mail? Or, making a phone call just to tell them how much they mean to you?
It doesn’t have to be fancy or mushy. Just sincere and from the heart. That kind of recognition is one of life’s best gifts!
Enjoy this week of Love…
