flower pots, growth, spiritual maturity

Several years ago, I purchased some plants and flowers that I haphazardly left in their original containers for a few months.

Today is Valentine’s Day and an annual celebration where lover’s exchange tokens of their affection and adoration for each other. But how do you quantify love? You can’t.

Regardless of whether or not you have a significant other to commemorate this occasion with, just remember to love yourself, if you are by yourself. Or, think about visiting a convalescent home or children’s hospital and share some homemade gifts of love with them. We know they would really appreciate your kindness. Remember, you have  364 more days of this year to share some of that good ole-fashioned love from your heart, if you can’t do it today.

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy New Year
