Every year my husband and I for Valentines Day we do something special for someone else. An elder is our community.

This Valentines Day, give the gift of Love to an elder!

So this year my husband will be working on Valentines Day. Today it was snowing and he was off.
So we decided that this year they would get an early gift of love.
We took our phones and shovels and out we went to clear their side walks as our gift to them.
The funny part I told this sweet elder that this year we wanted to do something extra special. We wanted to take pictures so we can challenge our friends to do the same for their own community.
Oh that is so wonderful he says, "What a great idea".
My dear husband pulls out his phone and says we will take picture with my phone.
I could see the panic in his eyes already, a phone?
My husband told him don’t worry I will show you how, it’s very easy just use this button.
Oh that is easy he says.
So we will be cleaning your walk way and side walk and you just take the pictures for us.
Now imagine this we are cleaning his walk way and we know he is taking those pictures that we wanted.

A good day to do a good deed, for an elder for Valentine's Day

After cleaning his walk way my husband gets his phone back and off we go to the next house down the road just a bit for our next person to surprise today.
This time we did not ask for any picture to be taken. We figured we already had some.
When we got home after a hot tea it was time to check our pictures to see how they turned out.
This is the funnies thing that I ever saw.
On every picture all 12 of them, there is this finger in the middle of it and the camera is being aimed down not at us, exactly how my husband showed him how to do it!
I laughed so hard I was crying from laughing.
My husband still does not think that this is funny at all. I called The Finger
But I told him, “Well you showed him how to take the picture that way, you never said turn the camera to us. So that is what you get!
I’m still laughing about it.
Now this Valentines Day challenge your friends to do something for an elder in your own community, this may be the only love they will receive from a stranger on the Day of Love.

Thank you Carmen we have been doing it over 20 years now. But now w are getting up there ourselves in age. I remember the first we did it. I don't eat chocolates we are raw vegans so this made much better sense to us. To treat someone else. But some elders have health issues, so it's better to do something instead of giving them candy.

A novel idea for Valentine's day. But I'm surprised to note you're not tech-savy about using a smart phone.

It was not us taking the photos GV Rama Rao but an elder which he is over 90 years old.

Haha I love that. I must say he takes a great pic. It's much better then some I have taken. Way to go for helping spread The true meaning of Valentine's Day. It's not about cards and chocolates it's about sharing and giving love

Very true! As well it's so easy it does not cost anything to be kind to someone else! You just have to have a good heart expect nothing in return and know that it was greatly appreciated by an elder
