Valentine’s Day

Valentine’s Day is a day for lovers everywhere to express there love. It is also a day I looked forward to when I was a kid. You remember making your Valentine boxes so all the other kids could put their cards for you in it. I love LOVE! There can never be too much love. 

So what if it’s a created holiday to sell cards and candy. Use this day to remember those you love, especially yourself! Self-love is the most important love there is. Without self-love you can’t fully love someone else, because you’ll always have that niggling thought at the back of your mind that you’re not worthy. I want you to know that you are worthy and deserving of love. So start replacing negative thoughts with positive ones about yourself! 

And for Valentines Day remind yourself to love yourself and others. Everyone deserves love! Keep that in mind today and everyday! Happy Valentine’s Day to everyone reading this. 

I hope you are spin free!

Love, Peace and Light! Rita

Occasionally someone will remember that I write and have published a children’s book, even though I’m not writing much other than my blogs. Today is one of those days... a friend asked me to read and talk about what inspired me to be a writer for a group of kindergarteners through second graders. Despite my health issues, I said yes. I may need a driver, but I will be there.

I just ordered some bookmarks to pass out to the kids. Hopefully, there won’t be more than 100 kids. I must say I’ve never spoken to a group that large. Kids can be tough audiences or they can be truly awesome. 

Now I just need to figure out what to talk about. LOL! I will probably say that I have been writing stories since I was in elementary school. Push my favorite book series... The Wizard of Oz and Little House on the Prairie books made me want to invent my own worlds. 

I will talk about my love of reading and the ability it has to transport the reader into different times, places and experiences. Hopefully, I can awaken the love of reading in this new generation. 

Now I just need to stay calm and remember to talk slowly and to enunciate my words so the children can understand me. 

Wish me luck. I hope you are spin free!

Love, Peace and Light! Rita
