i hope you all had a chance to spread the LOVE yesterday.
and you're right, it isn't about all the cards and flowers and what not.
(as Bewtcut's card shows perfectly)
but it IS about stopping to show a little bit extra love,
even when u haven't gotten any sleep
and ur grumpy
but u took the time to write a little love note before heading to work.
(thank u Bewtcut, u hot boy-toy u.)
I won't say Valentine's Day is over commercialized, cuz guess what?
so is EVERY holiday!!
Christmas, St. Patrick's Day, Easter, 4th of July, Mother's Day, Father's Day
you NAME it
there is a card, candy, gift for you to spend money on.
and you know what?
We SHOULD be letting our loved ones know EVERYDAY how much we love and appreciate them.
but it's also ok to take a moment to celebrate
or say things you haven't been saying for awhile
and have a holiday to do it in.
I see no harm in that. :)
So regardless of your circumstances, I hope you had a chance to share the love,
to spread it thru your friends and family and loved ones yesterday, and everyday!
like mostly, i was just glad Bewtcut was home this year!!
Usually he is deployed during Valentine's and his birthday (which are days apart from each other) so just having him HERE, safe and sound--no dangerous missions on deployment was gift enough for me. I was really grateful and thankful he was with us for the holidays this year!
on a side note,
I figured out that Valentine, baby cheekies are better to munch on than chocolate.
so, that's my new diet.
But truly, just love each other!
don't look at what you're lacking
YOU can be the LOVE to those around you!
You can share your HEART and TIME
which is what our hearts want anyway,
time, attention, and love.
We ALL can give that...
and that's free. :)
