I wish you all a Happy Valentine’s Day!
Share this day with your family, the person you love, and your children. Please continue to share love and kind words amongst one another before you leave for work, before your children leave for school, even before you each lay your head down to rest.
Say “I love you” to your children and to each other as we make each day a better day to live in harmony and peace.
I ask that you each be kind to one another and let this month remind us of why we care for each of our loved ones and how they have made our lives happy.
T’áá shoodí ádaa’ádahołyá.
Ahéhee’.
