A Valentine That Filled My Heart

I want to wish each of you a wonderful Valentines Day.

Many of you reading this are lucky to have that very special someone at your side. To you I say, “Cheers and may you appreciate the many blessings in your life.”

For those of you who have lost the love of your life, or maybe never found one or who may be dealing with dementia and feel your relationships have changed, even changed a lot; to you I say “You are not alone! You are loved and lifted by others just like you. They may not be in your home or even in your community, but they too have experienced loss and love and don’t want you to feel alone. So know deep down you are never alone. There are other people just like you in the world who care about you.

A Beautiful Crafted Card

The Graphic above is a beautiful handmade card I received from one of the many people I have had the honor to meet while building Alzheimer’s Speaks. A person I am lucky enough to call a dear friend.

Truthful Loving Kindness, a woman living with dementia, remembered me on this very special day and it touched my heart deeply. It reminded me that love and respect and acknowledging one another on Valentines Day doesn’t have to be limited to a spouse, a partner or a lover. We can, if we choose, let others in our life know that they matter to us. So thank you Tru for remembering me on Valentines and know you card made a big difference to me and your friendship means even more. May you have a blessed Valentines Day.

So reach out to your friends, extended family, coworkers, neighbors, fellow students… and wish them a Happy Valentines Day. Let them know they matter to you and have made a difference in your life.

And maybe, just maybe they will do the same to others and we can spread a wave of kindness around the world and make every person feel they matter and belong.

Wishing you each a blessed day filled with love – Lori La Bey
