“We are past Valentine’s Day, check the calendar!”
Yes, but I believe we should celebrate those we love all month and all year, not just one day.
As a romance writer, LOVE is always on my mind! So please allow me to enjoy Valentine’s Day a while longer.
Valentine’s Day is not only about celebrating romantic love, but also meant to celebrate the people you love, cherish and appreciate. That opens the door to just about anyone, from your children, your friends, and even the person at the grocery store who is always kind to you.
None of these gestures cost money, but what an impact we can make on those around us.
Don’t misunderstand, a great box of sweet, delicious candy is never a bad idea! However, the beauty of our words, plus the time to appreciate others will last far beyond a box of candy.
So let’s celebrate love.
On Valentine’s Day, today, and every day.
