King of Hearts
It's February and Valentine's Day displays are everywhere that you look. The flowers, candy, stuffed animals, and greeting cards proclaim love and affection for the recipients. The King of Hearts can be used to represent the different expressions of the romantic, familial, and friendly overtures that characterize the significant relationships in our lives. For romance, kisses may be dispensed by the King of Hearts. If you are unable to physically be in the same place with your significant other, deal them the card and let them know kisses are included.
Don't forget to let family and friends know that they also occupy a special place in your heart. Random acts of kindness are a great way to show someone that you care. Sometimes the seemingly small efforts mean more to individuals than the grand gestures. Pay attention to what matters to them so that you will know how to best serve them. If they are always pressed for time, offer to run some basic errands for them (pick up dry cleaning, provide a meal for the family, etc.).
The King of Hearts is at your disposal. He is available to you everyday, not just on holidays. Use him to let others know that they are part of your royal family. He can issue any decree or declaration that you want. Maybe one day a month can be "No Kitchen Duty" for a friend. You can either cook or purchase the meals for them and their family for the day. Be creative and target to their specific needs. In this case, it really is the thought that counts.
