Love and Friends Go Together

First, let me preface this post by adding part of a message that was sent today by a good friend. Even though it has doubtless been circulated through forwarded emails, it bears repeating, especially on the eve of Valentine's (Hearts) Day.

Friends are like balloons; once you let them go, you might not get them back. Sometimes, we get so busy with our own lives and problems that we may not even notice that we've let them fly away. Sometimes, we are so caught up in who's right and who's wrong that we forget what's right and wrong. Sometimes, we just don't realize what real friendship means until it is too late.

Since this holiday falls on a weekend when most people are at home (and even it if didn't) consider calling or emailing a friend(s). And, if you are really traditional like myself, you could mail a card or note) just to let someone know how special he or she is to you. Spread it around. It's a little thing, but might make a big difference to someone to know that you value their friendship and are thinking of them. After all, anyone can use a little more Love - not only on Valentine's Day but all through the year.

Grenville is my best friend and partner and I'm going to make sure to tell him (again and again) not only on Hearts Day, but every day.
