• September School Days and Sunsets

    Lily’s Playmates are at School 

    Lily, my grandpup, had a wonderful summer in the park.  She loved when all of the children fussed over her and lavished her with love.  And, as I posted this photo,  I was reminded of an earlier column with quotes from the author of “Love” Dr. Leo Buscaglia.

    “What love we’ve given, we’ll have forever. What love we fail to give, will be lost for all eternity.” Leo Buscaglia Quotes

    7 ways to express love in September

    1.  Hug a pet — your own or your neighbor’s.

    2. Say to someone you love:  “What can I do for you today that will make your life easier and less stressful?”  Then do it.

    3.   Go to an outdoor concert and hold hands and kiss each other in public.

    3.   Write a love note — a real love note and send it via the US Mail.  Here’s a simple start:  “I love you for a million reasons, here are the top three.”

    4.   Set aside time to give the gift of listening. Make a date if you must, in your own home or at a quiet little place in the neighborhood, for coffee or a drink and just listen to each others’ thoughts.

    6.  Find a funny — laugh out loud  — card and mail it to a friend.

    7.  Jump in puddles after a rainstorm ; this will trigger oxytocin, the love hormone.

    And a final thought, please go to Psychology Today and read 30 Days to September Gratitude, Joy, Love, and Remembrance.
