We wanted to give you a chance to share the most meaningful way that someone demonstrated their love for you or you have demonstrated your love to someone or something on Valentine’s Day.
Did they give you something special like a handwritten poem, a special homemade dinner together or a really good bottle of French Rosé wine? Was this a gift your mother gave you every year on this special day that truly made an impression on you? Did you volunteer for a project on this day, as a way to show your love for your community? To help inspire you, we are sharing our first “LOVE UNITED” story below.
We invite you to send us an email and let us know your favorite “LOVE UNITED” story. A selection of “LOVE UNITED” stories submitted by March 1, 2015 will be featured in our next newsletter.
My mother was never a highly expressive or super mushy person. The ways she expressed her love were more subtle, but consistent, generous, and sweet. She did things in her own way.
We weren’t a big candy family, but every Valentine’s Day I was given a huge Hershey’s kiss. It was the size of a lacrosse ball, and it took weeks to savor and eat. I loved that tradition, and it continues to touch me to this day. Now, we have our own tradition with our children, which is to give them something special on this day to remind them that we love them. We can’t find the giant kisses in stores, but that’s okay. Thanks Mom for showing me your love, your way.
