To the ones we LOVE

Valentine's Day is right around the corner and there is so much love in the air. Florist are working overtime, dinner reservations are at a premium, boxes of chocolates are flying off of the shelves, the really great cards are almost gone and jewelry purchases big and small will be presented to the ones we love. When I thought about the many different ways in which we try to express our love on Valentine’s Day I also thought about another way to say I love you.

The month of February has been deemed “American heart” month by the American Heart Association. The American Heart Association would also like for us to take the time this month to remind our loved ones to know their health numbers and to know what to do if a loved one thinks that he or she is experiencing a heart attack... with the focus on love this month I could not think of a better way to say I love you and to say how much I care about you.

For anyone who has lost a loved one to cardiovascular disease or to a stroke we know how important this heart information can be. So have a healthy heart conversation with the ones that we love this Valentine’s Day.


“For it was not into my ear you wispered, but into my heart.
 It was not my lips you kissed, but my soul” – Judy Garland
