Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead. There is only one happiness in life, to love and be loved.- George Sand
Nothing can equate with the joy that our Residents felt on the 16th of February. This was the day we marked for our Valentine’s Day Dance. Liz Naude and Andre,her partner, came from Durban to play music and this was received with great enthusiasm by the residents. As soon as the first song sounded, they waltzed into the Tim Hickman Memorial Hall, and got on their dancing moves. Most of them had dressed for the occasion, and the event was just one wave of red joy.
Indeed, the happiness that loving and being loved is worth celebrating, and we thank Liz and her partner for finding us worthy of receiving their time and love.
On the night, there were many prizes to be won. :

Words of thanks go to Liz and Andre for making us feel so special and loved. The act of love and friendship will linger in our hearts for a long time. This came from a very special place in your hearts.
So ended a decorated evening, but the theme of love lingers in our hearts as we look ahead to the ensuing months. It is so wonderful to love. To smile and to make another person happy. To give and take of this emotion. No wonder even God commanded it in the Bible; Love one another! Or is it Love won another?
