Valentine's Day is named after Saint Valentine and was originally observed as a day on which lovers expressed love for each other.
Presenting flowers or sending greeting cards became known as "valentines." Some like to refer to this day as "love day"- a time to show any all of your loved ones how much you care for them.

Today, be grateful. Be grateful for your favorite music, for movies that make you feel good, for your phone that connects you with people, for your computer, and for the electricity that lights up your life. Be grateful for air travel that flies you everywhere. Be grateful for the roads and traffic lights that keep the traffic in order. Be grateful to those who built our bridges. Be grateful for your pet, for your child, for your loved ones, for your eyes that enable you to read this. Be grateful for your imagination. Be grateful that you can think. Be grateful that you can speak. Be grateful that you can laugh and smile. Be grateful that you can breathe. Be grateful that you are alive! Be grateful that you are You!
Be grateful that there are two words that can change your life.
Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

I think we can all use this once in awhile!

The Optimist Creed reads....

I promise myself...
to be so strong that nothing can disturb my peace of mind.
to talk health, happiness and prosperity to every person i meet.
to make all your friends feel that there is something in them.
to look at the sunny side of everything and make your optimism come true.
to think only of the best, to work only for the best, and to expect only the best.
to be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.
to forget the mistakes of the past and press on to the greater achievements of the future.
to wear a cheerful countenance at all times and give every living creature you meet a smile.
to give so much time to the improvement of yourself that you have no time to criticize others.
To be too large for worry,
too noble for anger,
too strong for fear,
and too happy to permit the presence of trouble.
~Chistian D. Larson
