Valentine’s Day isn’t just for lovers, it is for everyone who loves.

I enjoy celebrations. I enjoy specific days in the year where we celebrate.

 

Christmas, Easter, Shrove Tuesday, New Year, Halloween, birthdays, Bonfire Night and Valentine’s Day.

 

I love them all.

 

But it isn’t the reason we celebrate that is important for me, it is the celebration itself.

 

I love the opportunity to meet with friends and family and to show people I care.

 

Today is Valentine’s Day.

 

So far today I have left little presents for my children containing reasons I am proud of them.

 

I have walked to my coffee shop with another regular. An elderly lady who sits by herself, we spoke  about her memories of marmite after the war and I wished her a happy Valentine’s Day, which made her beam.

 

My partner and I have planned an evening together to reconnect after a particularly busy and challenging couple of weeks.

 

I plan to continue to show the people in my life that they are special and make a difference to me.

 

I find celebrations a good time to do this. Life can be so busy that we can forget how simple acts of kindness can go a long way to lift a mood, deepen a relationship or strengthen a friendship.

Valentine’s Day isn’t just for lovers, it is for everyone who loves.

 

What are you going to do today?
