Share the Valentine Love! by Christine Bush


Valentine’s Day.

Some folks love it.  But for some, it’s a sad time, filled with loss, sad memories, unfulfilled dreams.

If you have your special someone, celebrate big! It’s a great time to honor your relationship and show love.

But if you don’t?  I still say it’s a good time to “SHARE THE LOVE”, even if not in that roses and chocolate romantic way.

We can share the love by hitting the dollar store and picking up a multitude of Valentine’s cards (or make you own if you are not craft challenged like I am).  Drop them off (or deliver if there aren’t strict covid rules where you live) to a nursing home or retirement community.  A sweet message can make someone’s day.

We can share the love by ordering a big box of donuts or cookies and dropping them off at the local hospital for nurses who are working above and beyond what they should be.  Gratitude is love.

We can go through the church or club phone list and make a Happy Valentines Day call to any senior citizen on the list.

Love pets?  We can drop off a much needed bundle of dog and cat supplies for the local shelter (nice idea to also include some of those donuts for the volunteers!) as a Valentine’s Day Love Gift.  (If you’re really feeling the love, you might even adopt one!)

Neighbors with kids?  To show the love we could volunteer to mind kids so tired mom and dad can have a few hours out.

Sharing the love spreads a lot of joy.. even to myself when I’m thinking of others.

How about you?  Any Valentine’s day hints?  I’d love to hear…
