With giving comes love

With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, all that is on people’s minds is the holiday festivities. Whether one is single or in a relationship, a person can find love but not the way he may. No awkward first dates necessary. All a person has to do is give back to his family, friends, and community to feel the worth of giving.

Family comes first. These people give their heart and soul to provide for us. On Valentine’s Day tell them you love them with flowers, homemade cards, a day of relaxation on you, and baking. Flowers are a simple gift to show the love you have for the people in your life. Homemade cards truly touch any parent or grandparent who receives them. The looks that spread across their faces are priceless and a homemade card can be simple and inexpensive. A day of relaxation can be your way of saying it is time for me to wait on you. Finally, baking can express a soft part of your heart. Even a burnt homemade cake will beat out any store-bought candy. It is not the thing you give but it is the love that is given with the gift.

Friends are the glue that holds human society together. They are the people that are with you through thick and thin. For Valentine’s Day surprise them with notes reminding them of the good old days, a night on the town, and homemade sweets such as chocolates or candies. Special notes or cards a reminding friend of the good year is a way to show you care. A night on the town shows the importance of taking a night off for friends. Finally, everyone likes a little sweet sometimes, and giving friends sweets reminds them that sweets once in a while can be good for the soul. Friendship is something we should not take for granted so remember your friends on Valentine’s Day.

Finally, there is community. Communities work hard to help all citizens be safe and happy. Volunteering and donating to local causes allow communities to continue to function. Volunteering can be anything from working at blood drive to participating in a free community play. Without people giving their time and showing their love, a community will not grow and prosper. Donating is simple. Take five minutes of your day and buy food for a food shelf or go through your closet and donate your gently used clothes. With people taking a few minutes out their day to give back, a community will succeed.

On Valentine’s Day remember the people who have given so much to you and take a minute to sh .....
