Dear Friends, This is a Valentine created with love and appreciation for you! We at The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Foundation are so grateful for your continuous support for our 12 years of developing, advocating for and funding programs, resources and supportive services that benefit the diverse population of adults living with Autism throughout the United States. Thank you with love!!!
Why is a day like Valentine’s Day meaningful? For many it is a particularly difficult day. I read something this morning that reminds me of this…a beautiful woman I know posted on FACEBOOK that for 16 years she has been sending herself flowers on Valentine’s Day and looks forward to the day when someone else will do this for her. My first thought was how poignant and a little sad, but then I thought, this is good that she loves and values herself enough to send herself flowers on this day. It is a good message, to love yourself first.
It is also meaningful to take a pause in our busy lives to acknowledge love. We can all get so overwhelmed with daily chores, commitments and chaos that gratefulness for all of those we love remains unspoken. Valentine’s Day reminds us to say aloud what is in our heart.
And one final thought on this topic, if you know someone who is alone, or may feel alone today, why not pick up the phone or at least send a text or an email to say, “Happy Valentine’s Day?” They are three little words that will mean a lot!
For those special someones, the other three words (“I love you”) will mean more than anything.
With love to you,
The Daniel Jordan Fiddle Foundation
