“Comedy keeps the heart sweet.”  ~~ Mark Twain

In two days we will celebrate one holiday set aside for love, for lovers and for all the goodies we can buy to celebrate these things. I adore holidays, Valentine’s Day included! So what do I want for this wonderful day? A sweet bouquet? I’d love one, right here next to me at my desk. A card? Sure, who doesn’t love reading sweet verse about how loved you are? A gift? Not an expensive one, but gifts are, again, always appreciated.

I don’t really need those things….I would just appreciate a happy thought, a good chuckle, a few smiles during the day.

So for those of you who cannot afford or don’t want to give the usual candy or flowers or cards….give your loved one some of your time. Share some happy memories, share drams of your future, share some smiles, some laughter. Share what matters most, time together.

But, if you want to give a card, that bouquet of flowers, that cute lingerie you found at the mall go ahead! Just remember to throw in some quality time together, that is the thing she (or he) will remember most!

A Happy Valentine’s Day to you all,

KW
