Happy Valentine's Day!
Happy Valentine's Day! I hope you are enjoying the long weekend and that you are reminded by family members and friends that you are important and that you matter. Valentine's Day is often a holiday that is dominated by commercials encouraging people to buy special cards, jewelry, flowers or candy, but really those items are not what love is all about. Love is about caring for the people in your life and putting their needs above your own. Love is also about respecting one another! February is Teen Dating Violence awareness month. I hope that you all know and realize that you deserve to be in healthy and respectful relationships. It is important to speak up and set healthy boundaries in your relationships and to seek help if that is not happening in your life or the lives of those you care about.
