Happy Valentine’s Day! What a great day, all about love. Whether that love is directed toward yourself, your children, a significant other, or a stranger, it’s just a great reminder to be kind. I don’t believe the day has to be about flowers and dinners or feeling left out for flying solo- it’s an opportunity for random acts of kindness that make our hearts (and someone else’s) feel fuller. Maybe you buy the person in line behind you coffee, or maybe you’re like the kind soul that helped me years ago. Have I told you the story? Several years ago, I was trying to finagle two carts (one full of groceries, the other with two fussy kids under 18 months) out of the grocery store. Of course, one cart had a bum wheel, I was incredibly sleep deprived, major post-partum & was on the brink of completely losing it. So, this amazing gentleman walks up and tells me just to push the kids & he’d bring the other cart to my car. And he loaded the groceries into my trunk. I’m sure he questioned my sanity as I cried in the parking lot, thanked him profusely, and gave this kind stranger a hug. Point is, you never know how 60 seconds of your time may affect someone else.
