Happy Valentine's Day

Hello ...

Just popping in to wish you all a wonderful Valentine's Day ... 


A little story for you ... 
Some years ago I was in a sad place ... it was a cold February day ... the 13th to be exact ... I was wandering aimlessly around a shopping centre ... All around were signs of Valentines day ... each shop had decorated windows with hearts and flowers ... bright red shone in the gloom and the cold of that day ... I teared up each time I saw a happy couple walking by ... laughing, holding hands ... There were many young people on the streets ... with their whole life ahead of them ... and here was I feeling lonely and unloved ...
From the midst of the crowd a young teenage girl walked up to me ... she handed me an envelope and a chocolate heart wrapped in red foil ... She smiled a sweet smile and disappeared back into the crowd.
I stood for a moment wondering what had just happened ... I looked at the envelope in my hands with the little heart shaped chocolate and opened the envelope ...
It was a pretty Valentine card ... simple in it's design ... but the words written inside said everything I needed to hear ... It simply said "I love You" ... and it was signed "Jesus"
Now I am not an overly religious person ... I have my beliefs ... I try to be a good person ... But what were the chances of that happening to me that day?  I often wonder if that young girl knew the difference she made that day ... It turned things around for me ... 
It reminded me that even in the darkest of days someone somewhere loves you ...
~~~
Look for love in the simplest of things in ... even in the the most unlikely places ... and you will find it ... 
Give out your love and it will return tenfold
Hug your kids... fuss your pets ... smile at someone ... even yourself ... you are loved!

Oh ... and I got these today ...


Happy Valentine's!
