It’s all roses, cards and heart-shaped candies…..
Not always. Not for everyone. Not every time.
Today, as you enjoy those you love, be sure to think about how much you can give to someone, not what you get.
And think of those who have just gone through a death of a loved one, a shattered marriage, an accident, sitting at a bedside, or one of those “invisible” sicknesses.
So love with all you have. Love with all your heart. Give with all ya got. Enjoy your family, husbands and wives. Don’t feel guilty about being happy.
But if you can, just even for a moment, take a look around with your eyes, your heart, your mind… Think about what someone is dealing with. Even just one. They may have some dropped petals laying dead on their tables.
Send a real card or letter. Send a bouquet of flowers to a grieving friend. Pay it forward for someone in some way. Give more than necessary. Sneak a little something into their bag. Give a hug. Send an email instead of just a quick, “I’m praying for you!” on Facebook and then forget all about them. I know, because I can be guilty of that too.
What is a neat way to show love to a friend going through a hard time?
I’ll never forget when I was newly divorced, and it was the first time that my wedding anniversary came around. It was a really tough day, but I plowed through work and college classes. When I arrived at home, my best friend had sent me a beautiful flower arrangement. I felt so loved and cared for….I cried happy tears instead of sad ones.
