Where there is great love there are always miracles. ~ Wila Cather

...Wishing you a Happy Valentines Day!*

Today is a day to be with those you love, most importantly be kind to yourself and show yourself some LOVE, a little self pampering perhaps??? It's called self-preservaton. I hope you can take a little time today for yourself. This month of February give yourself a day to tune out the wants of the world. Read a book?? How long has that been?? Or take a walk in your yard and look at things with fresh eyes, maybe planting a new flower bed. How about it?

A good friend of mine, Deb Thoen is in the well-being industry, she tells me pampering is preventive medicine. Deb says, pampering ourselves may seem strange at first but taking care of ourselves first is very soulful and loving.

Today I will have an afternoon massage, one small kind gesture for myself...I already feel selfish and frivolous just saying the words, but I shall persevere, and when I start to feel forbidden again, I know pampering is an important part of staying healthly and well, and loving myself.

Please pamper yourself soon ~ Glad

I never pamper myself, I used to. but now I just feel guilty if I do. I really need to.
Love that picture of the yellow "love" painted on boards for a headboard, what a great idea!

I love the thought that Pampering is Preventitive Medicine...but it's so right on!! And so much depends on mama's being healthy, so here's to some pampering=)...where are we going Gladys & Celia;)

Thank you for visiting ladies...I think a trip, some place warm would be called pampering!!!

I am not sure how our Valentines Day Post ended up on January 27th!
I'm sure I hit the wrong button.
