Yes, it’s Valentine’s day. Yes, I planned a special dinner and bought my true love a couple of gifts. And yes, Mike bought me flowers. But the truth is, I never was big on Valentine’s day. I told Mike specifically to never propose to me on Valentine’s day. That it was to cliché'. Although I doubt it would have kept me from saying yes. ;-)
Valentine’s day is what we refer to around here as a “Hallmark holiday”. But in my opinion love should not be celebrated just one day a year. It’s something that should be celebrated everyday. And it doesn’t have to be though big extravagant gifts.
It’s the little things that say I love you, a text message to let someone know your thinking about them, a note stuck in your spouses lunch, a back rub, a hug, a kind word, support and encouragement, sending someone a card. I think you get the point. There are many little ways to say “I love you.”
I always tell Mike that there’s no way he couldn’t even doubt that I love him. Even if I didn’t verbally tell him every day, my actions would show it. And no matter who the person is in your life, parents, siblings, friends, your spouse. Make sure you find a way to let them know whenever you seem them or talk to them that you love them!!
Without love the world would be a depressing place…
