love - it never fails ...

I've never been big on Valentine's Day. I'm very anti-greeting card. I really don't like flowers. And it's not like I need an excuse to sit on my couch and devour an entire box of chocolates. It's a commercialized holiday (much like every other holiday) and I don't see the point in perpetuating the idea that it's the perfect opportunity to tell someone that you love them.

Because guess what?

You need to be telling the people that you love that you love them ...

EVERY

SINGLE

DAY.

Whether you are in the early stages of a friendship or have been married 60 years, you need to let your love be known. Don't assume that the other person already knows. Don't assume that having said it before is enough. Don't assume that they are going to say it first.

Scream it out. Let it be heard.

It doesn't matter if you're in a state of bliss or if you've just had a major fight, tell the people that you love that you love them.

Before you walk out that door in the morning.

Before you go to bed at night.

And every opportunity in between.
One of my moments ...
Cherish the little moments. The silly moments. The moments that make life worth living and the ones that make you question everything. Because throughout all of those moments the one thing that holds true is your love. It never fails.

Completely agree! I'm not into V-day either. My only "requirement" for that day is to exchange a letter or personal note. We both have a hard time to express our feelings and birthday, Christmas and Valentine's day are good moments to take the time to write down your feelings.

We also make sure we give each either random little gifts throughout the year. Sometimes you just see something you know your spouse would like, we just buy and exchange it right away, instead of waiting for V-day. And the surprise is even better!
