Happy Valentines Day

Happy Valentines Day.

How do we celebrate Valentines Day if you are sick or the ones we love? What are things we can do during Valentines Day?

Valentines Day is a big day for us Filipinos to show our love to people dear to our hearts. It becomes more special if the people dear to our hearts are sick. This is the best day to show them that we love them "in sickness and in health."

Our celebration might not be traditional dinner date in a fancy restaurant or a stroll in the park or watching the latest romantic movie available. No, our celebration includes going together early in the morning to the hospital to visit the doctor in the clinic. It is holding hands while waiting for the doctors for hours in the hospital lobby. It is comforting your loved one as they get pricked in their soft sensitive kin for lab tests and vaccines. And then dining together and sharing dietary food with low salt and low fat that nobody appreciates.

At the end of the day, our celebration of the Day of Love ends with walking side by side as we head home. As we assist the dear people in our hearts in their walk, we offer ourselves as the physical strength they badly need. Then we go to the bedroom to rest. As we rest, we are praying together that God's love will be the true strength that will keep our weakened spirits and sustain our tired hearts. That God's promise of love will not be limited in the happy moments in our lives but even in this hours. For it is during Valentines Day, that we can show to those dear in our hearts, however sick they are, that we do love them.

Happy Valentines Day.
