You know you're a parent when, instead of spending Valentine's Day with your partner, you spend it with the child that is throwing up. It's been a week of sipping water and nibbling on dry toast here, but I finally got a chance to catch up on some emails this morning while the young prince sleeps. The hubby and I will do something this weekend in lieu of the Valentine's Day we missed. But, really, that's kind of how it should be.
Yes, this message is getting to you 4 days after the big LOVE Day, but lessons learned in hindsight are often clearer, right? We shouldn't just show that deep appreciation and love for those dear to us on February 14th. We need to show them everyday. Any day can be Valentine's Day if you want it to be.
The more I thought of that this week (and the more I watched television shows on the environment while the young one slept curled up next to me), it made me think of the upcoming Earth Day. Earth Day is wonderful and Earth Day is great and I'm so glad that people get out there and do good things for Mother Nature in the name of that day; but, really, Earth Day is everyday. Everyday we can do things that show our planet that we care. Everyday we can make choices that make our world a little bit better place to live. Big things or little things; it doesn't matter. Buy a hybrid car or buy an apple from a local farmer. Either way you're making a difference.
So, show the people you love that you love them today (and tomorrow and next week and...) and don't wait until Earth Day to show her you love her, too. Make choices that are healthy; for you and for Mother Nature and live mindfully.
PS. Don't forget that there are special discounts waiting for your on our website during the entire month of February. You'll have to go on a little hunt for them, but, if you follow your heart, it will lead you to savings you'll love!
