Have a LOVELY Day…

February, Holiday, Hearts, Romantic

Tomorrow is Valentine’s Day…a day of love and fun, hearts, chocolate, flowers, and dancing. A poem.

People, Friends, Group, Hands, Signs

that’s what what Valentine’s Day
is supposed to be all about
and for many
it is
people celebrate
new love
old love
gone love
no love
the kind of love
doesn’t really matter
we have decided
to set one day a year
aside for love
wouldn’t it be nice
if instead of individual love
we could spread it out
to cover the globe
if the haters could stop
hating and killing
just for Valentine’s Day
one day
without violence
or ugliness
doesn’t seem like
a lot to ask for
does it
but we all know
that it is
because in general
and in spite of what we want to believe
peace and love
never seems overcome
hate and violence

Happy Valentine’s Day…

Happy Valentines Day, Valentine

Valentine’s Day is almost here…love is on its way.

Love and tenderness are beautiful in all their forms.  Kindness and sweetness is not only recognized, it’s felt deep inside of us.  We are moved by it, made better by seeing it.  Love, when it’s real, is a many splendored thing.

Operation Valentine…

I couldn’t get any links to stay on my blog, so I’ll just tell you what happened.  Remember the 104 year old Marine who asked for valentine day cards, so he could scrap book?  Well there are different card/gift counts, ranging from 700,00 to 300,000, or less, but he’s a happy man.  🙂

The outpouring of love and gratitude was wonderful and the place where he lives said that the mail and attention isn’t a problem.

You can look up Operation Valentine, Bill White, if you want to see videos, or read more about him.  But to say OV was a success is an understatement.  And on one of the videos he said that if the Marines needed him he would go.  Mmmmmm, I don’t think so, not at 104, but it’s nice that he’s ready to go back anyway.
