Valentine’s Day gives us the wonderful opportunity to focus on love.
Florists, chocolatiers and the now super popular Shari’s Berries helps us to do just that. But, for all those we will never send flowers or chocolates to, we can make sure we give them smiles, hugs, kind words and affirmation.
Recently I saw a quote that simply said, Be kind … everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about. I can’t get that quote off my mind. Actually, I don’t want to get it off my mind. It reminds me of the importance of being the kind of person that brightens someone’s day and helps to lighten the load they are carrying.
Maya Angelou’s words remind us that the feelings we impart, whether they are good or bad, can make a lasting impression.
“I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.”
I truly believe what 1 Corinthians 13:13 tells us … the greatest of these is love.
We’ve been equipped with everything we need to make someone’s day. And, these gifts are not only free but far reaching and in some cases–life changing.
I wish you a very happy Valentine’s Day and a life filled with love, kindness and beautiful blooms.
Happy Bloom Thyme Friday!
Psssst … It’s only 35 days until spring! 🙂
