It is no secret around here that I love people. I find the greatest joy in serving others. I always say that the best way to cure a bad day is to make someone else's better. I decided this year for Valentine's day that I would love on others as much as I possibly could, and to be totally honest, I think it blessed me far more than it blessed them.
I made a quick stop to the dollar store in the morning to pick up some balloons. I had assumed there would only be red balloons, so my heart just about exploded when I saw that they also came in two shades of pink!
I spent the day wrapped balloons around the side mirrors of cars, tucking notes under windshield wipers, and leaving gift cards in the door handles. Some of them I handed out to people passing me by, as well leaving a few little gifts on my neighbors' doorstops.
The entire day reminded me that people matter. Their stories, their heartaches, their triumphs, and their lives matter so much. Each day is an opportunity to be kind.
I made an evening stop at the post office to drop off some packages and check my P.O box. There were two valentines from people I've never met waiting for me when I opened up my mailbox. I about cried right then and there. Someone once told me all the kindness and goodness you put out into the world finds a way back to you.
