Happy Valentine’s Day to all of you. Spend the day with the one you love.

Thought for the week. To have love you have to show love; love is something special, having that special person in your life, then you know your life is complete.


The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart. Love is the happiness, of today and promise of tomorrow, so this warm note comes to you to say that you must live life with a heart full of love. Find someone worth your tears, worth your laughter, worth your heart and that loves you as much as you love them. When a girl is in love, you can see it in her smile. When a guy is in love you can see it in his eyes. When you love someone, it’s nothing. When someone loves you, it’s something. When you love someone and they love you back, it’s everything. Happy Valentine’s Day!

Happy Valentine’s Day to my Valentine, Paul E. Hamlett. Jr. You will always be special to me.
