Here it comes again...

So, it's Valentine's Day again. Yuck.

But I'm sticking with my new tradition and focusing on my friends and family. It's amazing how much better you feel when you focus on others, instead of wallowing in self-pity.

Even though I don't have much sadness and pity to wallow in this year :) But that's a story for another time. Or maybe not.

But I've been thinking a lot today about the different kinds of love. Love truly is a gift that, when shared with others, not only nourishes the receivers but us as well. It's a beautiful thing.

"This is the miracle that happens each time in the case of people who are truly in love: the more they give, the more they own of this delicious nourishing love from which flowers and children receive their strength and which could help everyone if people would accept it without doubt." Rainer Maria Rilke
