Valentine's Day is quickly approaching. Although not everyone has a special someone to spend the day with this year, we do all have special individuals in our lives that deserve our attention and affection. I challenge you to extend that Lovin' feeling beyond your normal circle. Here are some Lovin' ideas on things you could do.
*Make a donation and, better yet, make a friend with Special Olympics. Start the process of getting involved. You may find that no matter how much you give, your heart will get back much more in return. Go to http://www.SpecialOlympics.org/program_locator.aspx to find a Special Olympics program near you.
*Visit a nursing home. Take a nice bundle of flowers with you and hand them out. Spend some time visiting with the residents/patients. Many of them would have spent the day alone and will much appreciate the companionship.
*Sit down with your children and create some unique Valentine's Day cards. Hand them out to neighbors or take them with you to the nursing home.
*Give a gift or treat that helps others. Chocolates are nice, but Lovin' Scoopful ice cream is even better. 25% of post tax profits go to benefit Special Olympics. Now THAT's Lovin'.
