February 2015 - Cold Hands & Warm Hearts

February can be ice-cold, frigid and imposing, full of hazards and threats. February can also be heart-warming, affectionate and tender, full of love and romance.


February is National Heart Month in both the US and Canada (not surprising for the month of St. Valentine), the month in which we are reminded to focus on heart health. February is the month for which I can instantly recall the number of days without even going through the “30 days has September” chant in my head. February is the only month that actually gains a day every four years.  For such a short month, February actually has a whole lot going on: sometimes good, sometimes bad, but usually memorable. . .
