Connecting

“Sometimes you have to disconnect to stay connected. Remember the old days when you had eye contact during a conversation? When everyone wasn’t looking down at a device in their hands? We’ve become so focused on that tiny screen that we forget the big picture, the people right in front of us.” – Regina Brett

Happy Valentine’s Day! Hyvää Ystävänpäivä!

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hyvää Ystävänpäivä!

In Finland: Valentine’s Day is called Ystävänpäivä which means Friend’s Day. The day has no romantic meaning. Instead it is a day that people send cards and gifts to their friends in celebration of their friendships. I love Finland’s idea of celebrating friends who bring so much joy, sunshine, laughter and love to our lives.

Hope everyone has a lovely Valentine’s Day with those you love. Please always remember there are many experiencing a tough time whether they have lost a loved one, a job, someone they love has been diagnosed with cancer or another illness, or they are simply heartbroken and just feeling alone. Be kind and spread love and light today, tomorrow and always.
