Blow a Kiss to the World this Valentine’s Day

Love truly brings out the best in us – we become unselfish, kind and thoughtful. We want to sing loudly (usually off-key) as we go about our day, shaking hands with puppies and kissing old ladies on the head. It’s as if your heart physically expands so that you can fit more inside it!
