So what do you do on this day when there is no one special love of your life? I started first by expanding my “love” circle to my kids and their loves. Sent them all cards to arrive today. Then I went a step further and sent all the high school girls I work with at church a card, just in case no one thought of them as a Valentine. Yesterday, I started to think about my middle school church girls, what if they didn’t get anything? So while I was working yesterday, I bought the ‘Candy Grams’ the middle school was selling and had them delivered to their classes today.
Now I am home, stilling alone, still somewhat sad, but yet very happy because service helps us to think of others and not dwell so much on ourselves. I learned a lot from the wonderful people Donna and I visited today. Some who may be lonelier then me. I am thankful that somewhere in my life other people taught me to serve. Life is all about choices and attitude adjustments. Today I made a choice to adjust. Happy Valentine’s Day everyone.
