…and then there is LOVE.

There are 1000’s of love stories waiting to happen every day.

Not all are the kind of romantic love.

Some stories show a love that lives on many levels.

Jerrod Ebert and Kevin Schultz shovel the walk to Fond du Lac so that 82 year old Bud can keep the memory of his wife of 56 years, Betty, alive.

Bud Caldwell, 82, has a routine that he sticks to every single day.

My best friend of 38 years sent me this Valentine. It’s 9 minutes long but worth the watch. Again, there are many layers of love woven throughout the story. See how many you can spot.

Many might only see the romantic storyline. But there was also the diner owner who loved Laura the waitresses singing and wanted her to share her gift with others. Then there is the story of Laura’s kindness to the homeless man who returned the favor making the romantic love story possible.

Layers of love…

Yesterday was a hard one for many people.

Loneliness possibly crept in.

While Hallmark might make it seem there is only one type of love, the reality is there is not.

Earlier this week I fell in love with cousin Carolyn…

…and cousin Lisa.

Yes, there are 1000’s of love stories, on all levels, waiting to happen each and every day.

We all need love.

It’s there.We only have to look.


“Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. ~ Ephesians 4:2

"And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.” ~ 1 Corinthians 13:13

“ Above all, love each other deeply, because love covers over a multitude of sins.” 1 Peter 4:8

How silly to be lonely just because of a Hallmark day that the ad folks promote to sell gifts and cards. Our niece, who has recently separated after over 20 years from a very bad marriage, took her two little girls out to spread love for the day. They visited people who were very ill in the hospital and showed their love and support for family. They made cards and passed them out at a seniors home, they visited shut ins and others to give out their sweet hand made greetings. And as well as all that she took her little girls to a horse drawn sleigh ride at a winter carnival and watched the fireworks in the evening. Maybe some folks would not have the energy to keep up with her, how wonderful to not sit and mope about how rough her life is but to be out showing other folks love. Now that is how to keep Valentine's Day! <3

How sweet it is! Loved both videos. You're so right about what message is universally conveyed on Feb 14th. I try to be cognizant of that because I know so many who long for that idyllic idea, when it's really only one facet of what love really is. I am happy to say, though, that I saw lots of love expressed in more than just romantic ways this past week and this ongoing weekend. That's encouraging. So happy to see the glimpse of your times with your cousins, Laura! Happy Sunday. Rita
