I bend Valentine's Day to suit my own purposes following the think globally and act locally slogan. Locally, I send cards to my loved ones and try to find an act of kindness to spontaneously perpetrate on a non-family member. It might be as simple as a smile to a stranger encountered at the post office or store as I hold the door open for them or more complicated like a donation of clothes or blankets to a charity.
Globally, I just try to send out good thoughts as I really believe love sent out into the universe comes back multiple times. In fact, today, my neighbor, who is a cousin by marriage, pulled my recycle can back when the town announced it was not actually picking up today because of the weather. It was a thoughtful gesture on his part. I appreciate it especially as a full can on the icy driveway is not easy to maneuver.
So love to each and every human being on the planet and please pass it on.
