From the Heart -- My Love to You -- On the day before

(I grew up with bird freaks.  My father built a
swallow house, my mother loved birds.
And now my husband Steven,
the sweetheart of my life, is 
an absolute bird devotee -- probably 
single handedly keeping our neighbourhood
birds fed -- which is why I associate birds
with the magic of Valentine's Day.)
Hi everyone.  Here it is the day before Valentine's Day.
People are getting nervous.  Our local Loblaws is filled
with red roses.  Some people try to say that this is just
a commercial holiday.  But is it? Apparently there were
many Saint Valentines because Valentinus was a popular
Roman name.

For our family the heart definitely symbolizes love, and
my husband and my children are romantics.  Guaranteed
they will make a fuss about showing their affection on this day
with their special someone.

I am happy to be certain that love is the most important
emotion in our world.  We need to express it, share it,
be kind, be loving, be passionate about ourselves,
our families, our friends, our significant other.  We
need to think about the planet.  And we need to have
fun! I am wishing you a wonderful day, and I will write
you again tomorrow on this the fantastic Month of Love.

Have a loving the Month of Love day.
