What is better in this world than having special people who lift us up, make us laugh, comfort us when we cry, and love us through it all? These are important people indeed, and Valentine’s Day is a great opportunity to take pause to celebrate them and what they mean to us.
This Valentine’s Day, we also encourage our Homecare Advocate readers to spread their love throughout their community. Reach out to a homebound senior in your church or neighborhood. Visit or call an elderly relative, and let them know you were thinking of them.
Local charities may also provide ways for you to connect with seniors. In our home city of Knoxville, a non-profit charity Random Acts of Flowers distributes donated floral arrangements to hospice and hospital patients. The flowers, which were originally used in weddings, funerals, and more, are recycled and repurposed to “spread joy and offer comfort through random, thoughtful, botanical deliveries.” What a great way to multiply love!
We *heart* all of our readers and wish you a very Happy Valentine’s Day. We’ve selected a few classic love-songs to leave you with today. What is your favorite love song?
Chet Baker “My Funny Valentine”
Dean Martin “You’re Nobody til Somebody Loves You”
Billie Holiday “Them There Eyes”
“Grow old along with me, the best is yet to be” –Robert Browning
