As a kid I fondly remember Valentines Day. It was a big event in our lives growing up. The annual class Valentine Party where you shared gifts of sweet little cards with wishes of love and friendship on them.
The cards along with the sweetness of candy always made the day special because it allowed everyone to freely share how much they cared.
Raising my own kids I did the same thing and added in my own version of ideas from heart shaped pancakes or French toast to even a heart shaped meatloaf for dinner.
Little unexpected gifts of love were always there as well as helping my kids create the cards for their classmates.
Sharing love is simply a cool thing to do. Which is why it’s nice that we make a day just for that reason. Especially right now with the lack of love that seems to be in the air. However, that seems to be shifting too!
Be sure to join me in #28daysoflove over on Instagram.
I was impressed by the number of Super Bowl commercials this year that focused on love – as did Lady Gaga’s brilliant performance.
Love is not just for our personal lives – it slips into our business lives when we love the work that we do and who we get to do it with.
This week as my valentine gift to you I have a bunch of new "love the work" mobile wallpapers for you to download and enjoy throughout your busy moments when you look at your phone!
The thought is this … Life can get crazy… and in the all the “doing” we can forget the blessings our work provides us each day. It starts with the things that our work gives to others and to ourselves. The icing on the cake is when we actually enjoy the act of the work itself. Let’s love the work! I know I do and hope you do too!
Happy Valentines Day!
