From an exclusive meaningful rendezvous between two lovers, Valentine’s Day will morph into an all-inclusive romantic day. It will become a universal affection day within a decade.
Valentines Day is a universal expression of affection between two individuals. Love has no bounds; it is between two people in love, husband and wife, mother and son, father-daughter, brother-sister, brothers, sisters, friends, uncles, aunties, Grandpa and Grandma, and any one you care about.
Please feel free to say happy valentine to your sister, mother, brother, daughter, dad, uncle, or friend. It is a much bigger world now than it started out to be. Take them out for dinner and send them flowers to let them know that you care if you are the only one for them at this point in life.
Sadly, some of you are going to feel lonely, if you miss the love in your life; you have an opportunity to fulfill it. There is plenty in you that you can give by feeding the homeless, visiting lonely patients in the hospitals or nursing homes, disadvantaged women and children, and our veterans… share whatever little you have with them including the time and just listening to them. When a homeless person asks, give whatever you can, that is the most affectionate thing to do, you will enrich yourselves far greater by sharing.
Whenever the word affection comes to mind, I picture my dad and recall the way he called out my Mother’s name Khairun, it was romantic and filled with affection and I have always enjoyed the sound of it, it was simply soothing to hear.
Well, I am wishing a Happy Valentine’s Day to my loved ones and friends and the same to your loved ones and friends.
