Do we really need these reminders?

This week has seen us being inundated with love and kindness.

It has been Galentine’s Day, Valentines Day and Random Acts of kindness Day – all between Monday and Friday. What a week!!

It is sad that we have to have days to remember to have fun with our female friends, to say “I love you” to our loved ones or to be kind to other people.

Of course, we don’t all need a reminder or a specific day – quite often we do all of these things without thinking about them. We give love without it having to be disguised as flowers or chocolate or being gift wrapped.

We are kind to people without having to be told today is the day for kindness.

At The Chocolate Cellar we like to think of these days as not specifically being reminders but actually celebrations and markers of the lovely people in our lives and of the goodness and kindness around us.

So we hope you have had a good celebratory week.

With friendship, love and kindness – The Chocolate Cellar Team 🙂
