Happy Day of Love!

Friday, February 14, 2014

First of all, have you seen the Google doodle this morning? If not, stop what you're doing and go check it out. It was by far the sweetest thing I've seen all day. I laughed and I cried and it was so touching to hear each of the stories. The "4ever Yours" one really got me. When I began clicking on the little conversation hearts, I didn't quite expect to identify with any of the stories but when I heard this one, it struck my heart. I often feel just as the man described. It's so scary to think that one day, you will lose the ones you love.

There was actually a post I saw a few months back that nailed the feeling perfectly. It described being so incredibly happy and in love but how heartbreaking that feeling can be at the same time, because you know that one day it all will end. This was the video that went along with the post.

I'm not trying to be a huge downer on Valentine's Day, it's just something that I think about a lot and the doodle this morning brought those feelings back up again. I guess it really just goes to show how important our time is with our loved ones, whether it's our significant other, our family, or our friends. It's so incredibly important to show them how much they mean to us no matter what day of the year it is.

And I honestly believe the best way to do that is with our time. We can shower them with candy, cards, and flowers every day if we wanted to but with a life so short, time is really the only thing that matters. So this evening, Mike and I are going to dinner and then back to our house for a cozy night in. We don't usually do very much for Valentine's day anyway, but simplicity kind of defines the way we do things.

I hope that you are able to spend today with the ones you love. Whether you're married, dating, or single, don't look at today as a Hallmark holiday but instead take February 14th as an opportunity to spend time with the people you hold closest to your heart.

Happy Valentine's Day!
