day fourteen: heart

Today is a good reminder to love a little more.  We can all do that…sometimes it’s so hard to love.  I have always wondered why that is.  Some people have such tough skin and make you feel like love is a waste of time.  How I feel sorry for them!  Love isn’t about diamond earrings or boasting at work at how romantic you are.  It’s about looking into someone, the precious part of life that allows us to realize how vulnerable someone is and let them know we care…and always will.  It can be your spouse, your child or your neighbor.

Love should be the most real thing you ever feel. 


If once a year we have to show it with flowers and silly candies then so be it!


I found an inappropriate candy heart in the jar today, so I did what a good wife should and texted a picture of it to my husband’s phone.  Oops, was that your work number?  



I hope you have a happy heart this Valentine’s Day,  candy or no candy just know you’re sweet!

You are sweet too!
Happy Valentines Day to you and your family as well!
My family always treated Valentines Day as a day to show EVERYONE you care for appreciation, it isn't a day just for lovers.
But, you also wont hear a single complaint for the flowers that hubby presented me with this morning;)

Beautiful pictures! Also, as I read about it being so hard to love, I couldn't help but shout in my brain that people wouldn't find it so hard to love if they recognized that love is a decision...that love is an ACTION not an emotion. Emotions change.

But I will step off of my soap box and say that I loved the goofy gifts I got for Valentine's! Because those gifts were all given as an action to show love to me!
