Thoughts on …
Valentine’s Day, also called Saint Valentine’s Day or the Feast of Saint Valentine, is celebrated annually on February 14. Originating as a Western Christian feast day honoring one or two early saints named Valentinus, Valentine’s Day is recognized as a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of romance and romantic love in many regions around the world, although it is not a public holiday in any country.
“I’ve realized that although Valentine’s Day can be a cheesy money-making stint to most people, it’s a day of expressing love across the world. It doesn’t have to only be between lovers, but by telling a friend that you care, or even an old person that they are still appreciated.”

Valentine’s Day is this week, so it is the topic of my quotes for today!
Love is a strong emotion that can heal people when it is offered to them — honestly and without expectations.
I read a story today about a young man who opened up his house to a homeless stranger who was sleeping on his doorstep. It was a lovely story as the young man helped this older man find his daughter, and of course, they were reunited in love.
All it took was a little love from a stranger!
Let’s spread some love around this Valentine’s Day. You never know who it will help!!
I want to close this section by one final (humorous) quote:
“All you need is love. But a little chocolate now and then doesn’t hurt.”
~Charles M. Schulz — November 26, 1922 – February 12, 2000), was an American cartoonist and creator of the comic strip Peanuts
