Happy Valentines Day Wishing You Lots of Love

Remember the song 'Love makes the world go round'?  Love makes many things move.  Love is key to our existence, isn't it?  Today shouldn't just be about you and your partner.  Today should remind us that everyone - everyone - needs to feel loved.  That includes all children of Mother Earth and you yourself.

To learn to love another, you must first love yourself    The Way of the Wizard by Deepak Chopra

Everything flows from your own heart    Fa-Yen

Every action, every word tells the world our feelings and our thoughts.  Thoughts are energy patterns and energy is alive.  Can you imagine if we spend just this entire day thinking loving thoughts?  Sending loving, caring thoughts to the Universe?  To Mother Earth?  To the guy who cuts you off when driving?  To the woman who cuts in line?  To anyone and everything that comes your way this day?

May today fill you with love for our world, the Universe, and all who share our earth.

I love each and every one of you for the gifts you give to me of kindness and thoughtfulness.  Enjoy this day of love.  Pass it forward to everyone you meet.

A loving heart is the beginning of all knowledge. 
Thomas Carlyle

Love is the energizing elixir of the universe, the cause and effect of all harmonies.  Djalal ad-Din Rum.

People are very tender, very sensitive inside.  I don’t believe age or experience makes much difference.  Inside, even within the most toughened and calloused exteriors, are the tender feelings and emotions of the heart.  That’s why in relationships, the little things are the big things.  Steven Covey.

To the late great Diva, Whitney Houston, whose fans loved her and always will, performing my favorite love song:  Whitney, rest in peace and love in God's arms.

LHR, my friends - LOVE, honor and respect sent to all.

What a beautiful post! I love it. It is so true that we need to treat each person with care and love. I try to remind myself when someone cuts me off or someone is rude to me somewhere that they have things going on that I do not know about and maybe they are extra stressed out. I try to either ignore the rude behavior or respond with kindness. Wishing you all of the love and caring that you wished for me. :)

Donna, what a love feast you provided for us all. Sorry to be late. Tech issues are biting my bum, but here I am to say thanks for this :) Yes, Whitney was not missed for such a long time. May her memory not be slammed as she was in life. A kinder memory and peace ... I will always love you ... forever her anthem :)

Donna Yates said...

Kelly, too cute! Thank you. What an honor.
Jess, I could tell you're that kind of person. Thank you for your comment.
Fois, thank you for commenting. I agree. We all judge more than we should. I will always love you - a perfect sentence if ever there was one.

Dora Dee said...

Dear Donna Happy Belated Valentine's Day to you! Love your new page. I will try to visit more often as I think this page is more BB-friendly.

May your heart be filled with love 365 days a year!

Happy belated Valentine's, Donna!
Wishing you a month filled with love!
I grew up listening to Whitney and it's such a shame to lose an amazing artist like her. Such a beautiful person with such a troubled life. Hope she finds the peace she's always needed. She'll be an icon forever.

Donna Yates said...

Dora Dee, kind friend, it is always great to hear from you. Thank you for your nice comments. With friends like you, why wouldn't my 365 days be filled with love?
PK, thank you for your comment. I agree. Whitney is an amazing singer. Sometimes with such gifts, life becomes very difficult. But I have no doubt she is singing with God's choir as we speak. Like you, I wish her an eternity of peace and love.
