Welcome to Heart Month!!
I worked feverishly to get something up on Redbubble for the month of February… I was short sitedly thinking Valentine’s Day! But somewhere along the way, someone mentioned to me… “You know, February is Heart Month, you don’t have to rush!”
Heart Month… ahh yes – the month we remind others (and ourselves) to take care of their hearts! a time when the nation spotlights heart disease, the No. 1 killer of Americans. (not Covid) President Lyndon Johnson declared it Heart Month in 1964.
Did you know… 1 in 3 women are diagnosed with heart disease annually?
Did you know... The first Friday of American Heart Month, was also National Wear Red Day as part of the AHA’s Go Red for Women initiative. (Maybe we should change it to Every Friday in February!?)
Then I realized this painting-turned-print is not only a “heart related” piece, but a love related. Reaching for Love is one of the best things we can do – all year round – ! Everyone wants to feel loved, so let’s do something this month to let those in our lives KNOW they are loved. maybe we could even do something for our ‘neighbors’ to let THEM know they are loved. (or at least cared about)
…so it’s well time it makes it way to the Redbubble crowd so we can obtain products adorned with it. And it you really must have the original, well that is in my studio and will be posted on my website this afternoon under the Art Store (originals).
Remember to celebrate Heart Month, ALL Month, and ALL Year long!
