Happy Valentine’s Day

Whether you’re romantically involved, happily single, or looking for that special someone, I want to wish everybody a Happy Valentine’s Day sincerely.

If you are in a relationship, make sure to demonstrate to your lover how important they are. That doesn’t mean you have to spend copious amounts of money on overpriced candies, flowers, and jewelry. No, your love and attention are far more consequential to your partner than materiel possessions.

Conversely, if you are single—through choice or by misfortune—remember this: you don’t need external validation from someone else to prove your worthiness. Moreover, just because you are not in a romantic relationship doesn’t mean you can’t enjoy Valentine’s Day with some of your friends. Here is a good article from Woman’s Day on that subject: “15 Ways to Spend Valentine’s Day With Friends.”

And, in keeping with the spirit of the holiday, here is a link to some light reading on the history of Valentine’s Day from Wikipedia.

Happy New Year

As you’re reading this post, the New Year is either already here or just around the corner. Either way, I cannot believe 2020 is upon us. Wow! As a child I would have thought this to be the epoch of Buck Rodgers or something.

Anyway, I want to wish everyone a very Happy New Year.

Please, be safe, be happy, be kind. Take this opportunity to start the year with an improved outlook on life. And if you’re going to make some New Year’s resolutions, here are a couple of outstanding ideas: 1) Make a commitment to work harder and achieve more for yourself and your family. 2) Resolve to treat other people with love and respect—even if they do not reciprocate.

God bless you all!

Merry Christmas

I want to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Merry Christmas.

May you spend quality time with those whom you love, and may your heart overflow with kindness towards everyone around you. Moreover, let the past remain in the past; don’t hold grudges or fan the flames of hostility this holiday season.

In the words of Jesus “A new commandment I give unto you, That ye love one another; as I have loved you, that ye also love one another. By this shall all men know that ye are my disciples, if ye have love one to another” (John 13:34-35 KJV).
