Be a Sweetheart today....

Happy Valentine's Day!!!

This is the day of LOVE for everyone - a day to celebrate all the glorious ways love is displayed in our lives to and from those we love and to those we don't even know yet.....

Years ago, I had a dear friend once named Herb Owens who used to put this Dear Abby message on my desk every year on Valentine's Day!!!  I hope you read through it and soak in it's message because it is a timeless message that we can all use every day - not just Valentine's Day!!!

"Today is St. Valentine's day, so be a sweetheart and call someone ;you love and say, "I love you." (Make two or three calls!  Who says you can't love more than one person -- in different ways, of course?)

Go through your closets and give all those clothes you've been saving until you lose 10 pounds to your favorite charity.  Call someone who's lonely and say "I'm thinking of you."  Or better yet, say, "I'll come over tomorrow and take you to lunch...or run errands...or give you a ride."

Visit a sick friend.  Say a prayer (or two!)  Donate some blood.  Adopt a pet. Will your eyes, your kidneys and all your usable organs to someone who can use them after you're gone.  Forgive an enemy.  Hug your teenager.  Write a fan letter.  Listen to a bore.  Pay your doctor.  Tell your parents you think they're wonderful.  Spay your dog.  Nueter your cat. Quit smoking.  Drive carefully.  If you're walking, watch where you are going.

And, don't wait until next year to be a sweetheart again.  Love, Abby"
and, Love from Herb.....and Pam  xooxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxoxo

Isn't that wonderful?  Spread the love around!!!  Go and do things today and each day forward to offer love to someone who may never have had a Valentine.....and remember to hug yourself - You are important and loved very much, too!!!

2 Timothy 1:7 says:  "For God did not give us a spirit of fear, but a spirit of love and power and a sound mind."

Happy Valentine's Day!!!
