Happy Heart Day

No I am not hinting for candy, flowers or cards, nor do I expect them. However Patricia Day’s blog today is so wise that I wanted to share it with you. Valentines Day is such a couple’s thing that it excludes everyone else. We all know someone who is missing someone, even if it is because they haven’t found them yet.

———————————————————————-

Valentine’s Day fast approaches. Some will enjoy the day, while others will find it challenging because their loved one is gone.

Whether through death or by separation, Valentine’s Day hits hard, as many realize they are alone.  They no longer have that special person in their lives.

Perhaps, like me, you know someone who, very likely, will live through Valentine’s Day with dread and despair.

Let them know that you care.  It does not have to be a large elaborate card or gift; sometimes just a hug, a message or your time will suffice.  Knowing that another person cares can make all the difference in the world.  Loneliness does not have to feel as if you are completely alone.

Show them that you care and reach out to them on Thursday.

I’ve found four great ones for you to enjoy!  I know all of these gals and they live what they write! Please do them the honour of taking a peek and leaving a comment.

Congratulations to the following:

1-  Carley Cooper at Worship Melodies… the address is www.worshipmelodies.blogspot.com
Worship Melodies is about me “singing” God’s praises… without having to put others through the listening to listen to my voice.  LOL
Our Father longs to have an intimate relationship with each one of us. It is music to His ears when we worship Him by ‘singing His praises’. I pray that my Worship Melodies bring you blessings.
