Sunday Thoughts ~ Love’s Special Day

“The heart, like the mind, has a memory.  And in it are kept the most precious keepsakes.” ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow 


Good Sunday morning dear friends, and thanks so much for visiting.  Today, we celebrate Valentine’s Day, a special day of love.  Pablo Neruda tells us ~ “To feel the love of people whom we love is a fire that feeds our life.”  Such true words.  Our love for our families and friends, and their love for us, indeed enrich our lives.

Life can change overnight and celebrating love, often, is always a beautiful and important thing to do.  Even, in small ways.  Therefore, I would like to share a few lovely photos and words that touched my heart and I hope they will yours.

Love’s Philosophy

By, Percy Bysshe Shelley
The fountains mingle with the river
   And the rivers with the ocean,
The winds of heaven mix for ever
   With a sweet emotion;
Nothing in the world is single;
   All things by a law divine
In one spirit meet and mingle.
   Why not I with thine?
See the mountains kiss high heaven
   And the waves clasp one another;
No sister-flower would be forgiven
   If it disdained its brother;
And the sunlight clasps the earth
   And the moonbeams kiss the sea:
What is all this sweet work worth
   If thou kiss not me?
” Love finds a way.” ~ unknown
“In dreams and in love, there are no impossibilities.” ~ János Arany



Dear friends, I wish you and all those you hold dear a most beautiful Valentine’s Day.  

And . . .

May the day bring you special memories to cherish always. Stay well!

    1. Good morning, Rita, and Happy Valentine’s Day. It does look as though we have an interesting storm on the way. I don’t mind the snow – but I am certainly not a fan of ice. Stay warm and safe.

    1. Happy Valentine’s Day to you, Bonnie. We do have an ugly storm on the way tonight. However, our area is well equipped with snow removal equipment and the highway department gets after things early. So we should be good. Thank you for thinking of us.

  1. Good morning Sandra and Happy Valentine’s Day to you and Michael ? This is a lovely post with beautiful images and well chosen quotes. Stay safe over the next few days ♥️

    1. Good morning, dear Pam. Happy Valentine’s Day to you and your family as well. Thanks so much for your kind words. As far as the storm goes we should be fine, it is the ice that is concerning for people who have to be out.

  2. Good morning, Sandra! You have shared such a beautiful post with us on this special day of love. I agree with Rita. I love Zelda Fitzgerald’s quote. I hope you have a most Happy Valentine’s Day! Take care!

    1. Hi Jeanie, you are so sweet and I do thank you. Wishing you, Rick, and Lizzie a wonderful Valentine’s Day!

  3. Dear friend, very beautiful on Valentine’s Day “the day of lovers” … Of life, of your loved ones, of everything that God has given us in this world so that we know how to enjoy it.
    You enjoy it well because you are a very loving person who knows how to value what surrounds him.
    I wish you a lot of love and happiness. I am satisfied that my arm is gradually overcoming everything.
    With love

    1. Dearest Dolores, Thank you so much for your lovely and kind words. Valentine’s Day has always been a day of joy for me and I do treasure everyone and everything around me. I am so happy your arm is improving, it will steadily improve and you will soon be doing the things you enjoy.
      Blessings, dear friend, and wishing you a beautiful day! ❤❤
