Alone For Valentine's Day

Alone For Valentine's Day
Will you be alone for Valentine's Day this year? Here are some tips for making it a great day anyway

I began looking at how fortunate I was to have the support of family and friends through my grieving process and I recognized how especially lucky I was to have people who helped me raise my sons through that most difficult time. It was that Valentine’s Day that I decided to use the time to write Thank You notes to those people who had supported my children and helped them through the most difficult time any child will ever go through, the death of a parent.

You wouldn’t believe how full with love my heart became. There is no room for unhappiness, pity or anger with gratitude. Gratitude crowds out all negativity. If you find yourself alone this Valentine’s Day, why not spend the day truly counting your many blessings? If that’s not your thing, then find something to do that will promote the kind of feelings you want to have. Be proactive. Choose your attitude. Enjoy every day, not just Valentine’s Day.
