I do not like Valentine’s Day. It’s yet another painful reminder of how my life has not followed a certain flow.
Yet I don’t want to remain stuck in the sticky web of melancholy on another holiday. When I reframed New Year’s Eve this year, it was probably one of the best NYE’s in recent past.
Now I want to reframe Valentine’s Day.
There has to be more than the absence of cards and flowers. There has to be a wide spectrum of joy on a day absent of romance.
So I need some ideas on how I can make my and others’ Valentine’s Day spectacular. One plan is visiting some of our congregants in nursing homes. How else can I bring joy and love to our world on a day that can be very discouraging for people?
Let’s come up with some ideas!
