For the love of it

 Sing a Loving Song

Here is this year's offering, made into cards, and
handed out as often as possible. Valentine's Day
is only a "bit of fun" as the  characters say on
one of the British TV shows we're watching.

But love -- love all year round, is the magic
in the world, and not something to be
made fun of, or dreaded.  It's everything,
wonder, kindness, beauty, understanding,
the warm thread that sews a life together.

I hope that you are spending, the day,
the weekend, the year with people you
love -- whether they are your family,
your husband, wife, girlfriend, boyfriend,
friend, whoever.  And if not I wish you
dogs and cats to be with you, and
perhaps a bird or two, and phone calls
with people who love you, and who
you love.

Love matters.

Have a loving-yourself-and-others day.
