While making plans for your own family, I want to encourage you to think of someone who may not have a Valentine.
Write a nice note to a shut-in, take heart-shaped cookies to your neighbor, leave flowers on a widow’s doorstep, or give a single mom some bubble bath (for her) and a cute movie (for her kids) so she can have a little at-home relaxation.
You don’t need to do all of those, but make plans for one simple thing to make someone feel extra special this Thursday, then make sure to follow through on your plans!
Try to do this anonymously to add to the fun and so the recipient doesn’t feel a need to reciprocate. Happy Valentine’s Day!
