Happy Valentine's Day!
We hear lots of bad things in the news, and bad things do happen in life that is true. But good things happen too, and today seems just as good a day as any to celebrate the good things in life. For example, the bushfires in Victoria were awful, but the spirit of the people in Australia has been amazing as people have donated clothes, household items and money to the bushfire appeal. Yesterday, the local supermarket donated all of Friday's profits to the appeal and it was absolutely packed with customers who'd held off shopping earlier in the week to spend their money on this particular day. People have been really moved to help, and this is all in the spirit of love and is worth recognizing. When it really matters, people pull together - awesome.
Have a wonderful Valentine's Day - let's be good to one another!
