What seems like a life time ago, my grandparents gave me a card with these words from Ralph Waldo Emerson, “What lies behind us and what lies before us are tiny matters compared to what lies inside of us.” I have never forgotten this verse.
Today is Sweetest Day. A reminder that a thoughtful word or deed is able to enrich the life of the recipient as well as the person giving it.
Sweetest Day is celebrated each year on the third Saturday of October. Although often thought of by many as a second Valentine’s Day, Sweetest Day is actually a day meant to celebrate all the people who make your life special. It’s an occasion to make someone happy … by finding what lies inside of you to share with others!
Sweetest Day was founded around 1922 in Cleveland, Ohio by Herbert Birch Kingston. Kingston sought to bring cheer and some happiness to the lives of those who were often forgotten.
Happy Sweetest Day to all of our readers
