Make Valentine’s Day about Gratitude

By Karen Stewart

Happy Father with DaughterEvery time we turn on the radio this week it is all about love – the “have’s and have not’s”. I agree that getting roses and sharing a romantic dinner with your significant other is great, but there is so much more to this day of love.

There are many inspirational leaders that remind us that we should start and end each day with a prayer of gratitude for all that we have been blessed with. My guess is like most others — we get so busy that we forget to stop and take the time to just be thankful for all the love we have in our lives every day. Consider the love of friends, family, co-workers, and pets, “God or your image of God” that makes your life rich each and every day.

Perhaps this year add to your Valentine’s list — a day of gratitude with perhaps a small thank you to those who make your life full all year long. In this way, we all have love.
