Nobody has ever measured, not even poets, how much the heart can hold.

Zelda Fitzgerald

February 14th - Happy Valentines Day

Love is the greatest refreshment in life.

Pablo Picasso

It’s a day we celebrate with chocolate and hearts and flowers trying to show those we love how much they mean to us.  The different kinds of love are wide and various, but they all boil down to what’s in your heart.  

There is no such thing as a perfect occasion to say I love you.  The right moment is now.  It’s not only a day for lovers it’s a day for kids, family and friends.  All those people that are mportant in our lives.

I try never to miss a chance to say, I love you.  You never know when it might be our last chance to do so.  I do it everyday.  There is not a day goes by but that the people I care about know  I love them. Tomorrow is not promised.

Not only should we say I love you, but we should show we love them too.  Sometimes that means fixing their favorite meals or taking them out to diner.  Sometimes it’s simply helping out with the chores and sometimes there is just nothing better than a hug.

Don’t forget to give people compliments on what they do and tell them how much they are appreciated.Be encouraging ands show that you support them in what they do.

Say Thank You often.  Be a good listener.  Always have time for each other.

The best thing to hold onto inline is each other.

Audrey Hepburn

Sometimes love is constructing Ikea furniture, folding laundry side by side, washing silverware and handing them to your person to dry.  Sometimes love is about mundane moments, every day chores and domestic duties.

People don’t always say I love you.  Sometimes it sounds like be safe, Did you eat? Call me when you get home.  I made this for you.

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched.  They must be felt with the heart.

Helen Keller

A Valentine Prayer

I said a Valentine prayer for you 
and asked the Lord above 
to fill your heart and bless your soul
With the precious gift of love.

I asked Him for sincere love
The kind that’s meant to stay
Just like the generous love 
You give to those you touch each day

I prayed for love from family 
And every cherished friend
Then I asked the Lord to give you
His love that knows no end.

Happy Valentines Day !

You end with a sweet prayer, and to you a Happy Valentines day, no doubt YOU are loved by that family of yours.
As we grow older some facts become TRUTH to us, such as this statement of yours:
You never know when it might be our last chance to do so. (say I love you!!!)
Sending love your way.
Sherry & jack on a cool over cast day, but bright inside.

What a perfect share on Valentine's Day! I like your examples of 'mundane moments' and to remember, expressions of love aren't always spoken.

Too, I like that quote by Zelda Fitzgerald! Until moving here I didn't realize she was born in Montgomery, the daughter of a state Supreme Court justice. One of her homes is now a local F. Scott and Zelda Fitzgerald museum I've been 'meaning to get around to' visiting.
