Happy Valentines Day!

February 14th has been celebrated as that special lover's holiday for many years. Some believe in roses and chocolates, while others sing to celebrate their love. There are many tales of how this holiday got started, but I'm not going to bore you with a history lesson.

I want to remind you to take just a few moments on Friday to give a little bit of love to someone else. If you don't have a spouse, try spending a few moments with a friend or neighbor and share from your heart. Open up and let someone see inside you. What you'll find out is that by giving, you get back many times over. 

I like to write about characters who experience love in their lives and have changes in their lives because of that love. Do you create characters that are lovers as well as friends? How do you show their love? Their first kiss and the first time they say I love you? However you portray love between two people, make it fresh, even if they are sixty years old. Love is from the soul where smiles and laughter dwell and when we share this part of us, we become young again.

Happy Valentines Day and may you experience love today!

    "...and when we share this part of us, we become young again."
    I agree... Love is ageless.
    Happy Valentine's Day, Sis.
