All Things Red

Valentines Day will be here in just a couple weeks. It is a time to tell your partner, your spouse, your children, your parents and your pets how much you really do love them. A day to remember all those little things that your family and friends do for you and to show your appreciation.

Wouldn't it be nice if we remembered that each and every day?

Today I pledge to say thank you with enthusiasm to my husband every day for taking out the garbage without being asked. I pledge to hug my children just because at least once a day. I also pledge to call my 80 year old mother each evening just to say good night and to remind her that she has been the biggest inspiration in my life.

I also pledge to smile when I am in the check out line at the grocery store, not cut off drivers on the interstate, and pleasantly say "I'm not interested" to telephone solicitors.

So, here is to red, the color of love... May you celebrate every day!

Don't forget to visit me on etsy, shophandmade and artfire.
