Show Everyone Some Real Love on Valentine’s Day

February 14th ~ Valentine’s Day … it has very different meanings for different people at different stages of life. Some people think it is just a Hallmark holiday … a marketing ploy to boost sales of romantic cards, flowers, candy and jewelry. Some people think Valentine’s Day is the “be all – end all”. They think life is worthless if you’re not in a relationship on this day 🙁

This way of thinking makes me so sad. Everyone needs love, REAL LOVE … not only on this day, but every day. I’m not talking about mushy romantic gifts plastered with hearts, but love in the truest form of the word. Let people know that you truly care for them … family, friends, neighbors, and strangers. We may never know what they are really dealing with because many people put on a façade for the world to see. We have no way of knowing what goes on behind closed doors, but I think it would be a safe assumption to say everyone needs more love in their life.

So here is your “call to action”  ~  pay for the person behind you in line at the coffee shop … meet a friend for a Galentine lunch date … smile & pay someone a genuine compliment. Just the other day, a total stranger told me she thought my hair was beautiful ~ it still warms my heart just remembering it ♥

I follow a few blogs and 2 have really struck me this week … http://lysaterkeurst.com/2014/02/5-ways-to-survive-love-season/  and  http://mandisaofficial.com/home/single-appreciation-week-day-1/  … check them out and let me know your thoughts & Don’t forget to tell me how you shared your love with others today ♥

Tracy Helps You’s Thankful Thoughts for Today ~ 11-8-13

November 8 ~ Today I am thankful for my DVR. Don’t laugh, I know it sounds silly, but I really am thankful that I have one.

I love that I have it set to record all the regular shows that I like to watch. I don’t even know what day of the week or time that they come on. Since I don’t have a lot of time for watching TV, I truly do appreciate that all my favorite shows and Hallmark movies are recorded and waiting for me to watch.

Yesterday afternoon and evening, I had some free time to catch up on a couple of my shows. I love that I can watch an hour long show in about 40 minutes by fast forwarding through the commercials. I even watched a Thanksgiving movie on the Hallmark Channel. Since I was actually watching “live” TV, I wasn’t able to skip the commercials. It was ok though because I saw previews for some of their Christmas movies. I just love those sappy, happy ending type holiday love stories … so I set my DVR to record them 🙂
