I just love this day, don’t you? For me, it’s not about flowers, candy, jewelry, or an expensive dinner out. Don’t get me wrong, those things are lovely and certainly generous. To me this day is really about celebrating our capacity as human beings to love, and being grateful for the abundance of love we have in our lives. Hopefully we tell the people we care about “I love you” every day, but life moves pretty fast and before we know it, an opportunity to declare our love and express our gratitude for the love we receive slips through our hands. But we can seize this day. Boldly say “I love you” to our life partners, mothers, fathers, brothers, sisters, and friends. Be romantic, be silly, be real. Do it now! I love you all so much for your love and support. So tell me, how will you celebrate your love today?
