Valentine’s Day isn’t about flowers and candy. It’s about love. For my children at school, a teacher’s love is where it all starts. You can’t have a heart without love. Love is infectious, and makes the heart grow. The bigger the heart grows, in turn it has to spread love to others. A hug is a wondrous thing for the heart. It is a pure transmitter of love. Sometimes hugs come in spontaneous bunches:
Sometimes hugs come in singular moments:
“What is my favorite thing in the whole, wide, world?” I said those words with gusto. Maybe passion. Yes, it was passion. And the children answered.
Aaryan said, “We are!”
And what did I say in return? “I love you”, of course.
There are never too many hugs. There is always room in the heart for love.
“The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must felt with the heart.” -Helen Keller-
