This year, Valentine's Day is brought to you by Jergens Lotion and Ladies Home Journal, circa 1949....
(I think that Bill may have a "thing" for women's hands!).
The text continues:
There was magic in the moonlight! Bill held my hands...our eyes met long enough to say, "I love you".
"This is forever", he said. "Your gentle hands...your dear heart are mine now."
(Are you swooning yet? If I ever write a romance novel I'm going to lift some of this text, I swear it.).
I hope that you are able to spend some time today with a special someone, some friends, or a family member that you love.
Although we tend to focus only on romantic love today, I think that Valentine's Day is one of those days in the year that we can spread a little more kindness (a.k.a. love) toward others in our immediate circles.
Show a random stranger a little love by wishing him or her a good day. Bring your coworkers heart-shaped cookies.
In our busy world with so many demands we tend to forget ourselves at times, and this is a good day to show yourself some loving kindness. Celebrate today by taking a little time for yourself: eat chocolate, indulge in a favorite hobby, get a pedicure...somehow pamper yourself today. I recommend more chocolate.
Happy Valentine's Day!
