Love

I love Valentine’s Day.  Always have.  To me, Valentine’s Day is not about couples and googly eyes over a candlelit dinner.  It’s just a day to have fun with love.  I’ve heard some complaints about Valentine’s Day.  I’m sure we’ve all heard the comment that Valentine’s Day is silly because we should show our love every day, not just on a “made up” holiday.  Of course we should.  But just as Christmas doesn’t mean that I love my Savior more on that day and my birthday doesn’t indicate that I’m more alive on that day, Valentine’s Day isn’t the day that I love my honey and my family more.  It is the day when I can turn the real, deep, profound love into something that is fun, light-hearted, and a little over-the-top.  It is the day when frilly hearts and cheesy sing-song rhymes aren’t embarrassing, just sweet.  Valentine’s Day is love’s playdate.
