The holiday of Valentine’s Day comes from Saint Valentine, who officially was Saint Valentine of Rome. He was beheaded in Italy for helping Christian couples wed. His sacrifice can be an example of selflessness and sacrifice. From this I couldn’t help but wonder when the last time was that I made a tremendously big sacrifice for someone who I cared about. With Saint Valentine’s holiday coming right around the corner, try and do some self-reflection on what it means to give. Remember, sacrifice doesn’t have to be a serious as giving your life for another. It can be as simple as asking someone if they need a shoulder to rest on.
