This being Valentine's (search) weekend, and all, I thought I'd try to put this holiday in some perspective.
I know as a business guy, that a lot of chocolates going to be sold and a lot of flowers and cards. Maybe even lingerie and perfume. Restaurants will be busy. Country inns maybe busy too.
All that's well and good. But, if you want to make a difference this Valentine's Day, don't look in your wallet, try looking in your heart.
Try -- and I know this sounds corny -- being nice.
Try not complaining. Not carping. Not criticizing.
Half the time I think the alarmingly high divorce rate in this country is due to people who get side-tracked in this country. Pressured at work. Pressured at home. And taking it out on the people in their home.
It's human nature to get hot and bothered. But I also think it's human nature to be kind and compassionate.
So trite as this sounds -- and this goes to men and to women -- let that someone special in your life, know they're special in your life.
Let them know you know the little things they do make a big difference to you.
Know the power of a smile the understanding assurance of a hug.
You don't get rich doing these things. But it's very enriching living these things.
Happy Valentine's Day and many more.
