What month is it? FEBURARY

What special day is on Feb. 14? Valentine’s Day

So what do you think is February’s virtue of the month? LOVE

So every month, it’s pretty easy to write these virtue speeches, I quite enjoy it actually……but this month, wow, it was really hard to write.  And I think is because the concept of love both vast and abstract.

So what is love?

We’ll here’s some well known phrases used to describe what love is?

I think one of the things that makes LOVE so confusing is that there’s so many different types of love.   Raise your hand and give me an example of a type of love.

What makes it even more confusing is that you don’t only love people, but you can also love things.

For instance, I love…

Watching Star Trek

My favourite team

I love my job!

So, I might not be able to define love but I know this, you never pass up the opportunity to express or share your love.

Let me read you an exert of I read to you 2 months back with regards to time.

Treasure every moment that you have!
And treasure it more because you shared it with someone special, special enough to spend your time.
And remember, time waits for no one.
Yesterday is history.
Tomorrow is a mystery.
Today is a gift.
That’s why it’s called the present.

I read you this today because you never know what’s going to happen tomorrow.

I had a friend named Joe that was hospitalized and eventually passed away while in the hospital.

Every day, I’d say to myself I’ll visit it him tomorrow, I’ll visit it him tomorrow.

Unfortunately, tomorrow never came, since he slipped in the shower while the nurse turned around to get something and cause severe trauma to his head which he never recovered from.

So I never got the chance to say goodbye.  I never got the chance to say thank you.  And I never got the chance to say I LOVE YOU.

So…….if you have the chance to tell a person I LOVE YOU today, than take the opportunity to say it.

Don’t take today for granted.  Like I just read you:

Tomorrow is a mystery and today is a gift.

So as I close…….just want to let you know that I love you and all the time and effort you put forth coming to the CEC every month as well as meeting online.

Thank you.

So let’s put our words into action and take 3 minutes now to tell your friends and teachers thank you and I LOVE YOU.
