Red, pink, chocolate, roses, cards, hugs, kisses, just a brief summarization of what Valentine's Day means to most people, and yes, it's fun to give and get, but we must not forget the main reason for setting this day aside as a holiday, love. I LOVE, love. I love the idea of it, the act of it, the joy of it, everything about it. I've got a history of having amazing Valentines, my Mom and Dad, Momaw, Popaw, Gran, Great-Gran, Boat, sister, my newest Valentines Jason and Brewster, but most importantly God. They've been there every step of the way, cared for me, raised me right, been wonderful examples of how to love others, each other, and the importance of having a love for God and his word. One day I hope to have a daughter, granddaughter, great-granddaughter, (I guess it could be a boy) to give the same love they've given me. And even though I'll never know the love God has for me, I can increase the love I have for him and teach that to those around me.
I've been blessed beyond measure with love that I don't deserve nor could ever repay, but I can try. You don't have to be in a relationship to celebrate love, there are so many people who love you, one in particular who will never not love you. Celebrate love tomorrow, know that I have a love for you as a friend, relative, aquaintance, reader, human being, I love you! Let's celebrate love!
