Have you ever noticed Valentine’s Day is quite polarizing? Depending on life situations, people either love the holiday or want to kick it to the curb.
Since the 14th century Valentine’s Day has been associated with romantic love and romantic love is fabulous. Handy Husband and I celebrated 18 years of marriage a few days ago, so I have a deep appreciation for all things romance.
I also have an even deeper appreciation for all things beginning and ending with “Honey, I’ll do the dishes.”
What I want to say on this Valentine’s Day Eve in the mushiest way I know how is THANK YOU.
Thank you to each and every one of you who reads the drivel that I write on this blog. Thank you for showing up, for liking things, for commenting, for sharing, for just being fabulously you.
Whether or not our paths ever cross, we’re all on this human journey together.
Thank you for filling up my bucket with encouragement time after time.
I hope I can return the favor someday.
As you go about your day, I encourage you to step back and view your outlook on those around you, those on social media, those in your community, those you have never even met through the lens of love.
The world could certainly use more love today. Don’t you think?
Happy Valentine’s Day.
P.P.S. If you aren’t familiar with the “fill your bucket” reference, read this children’s book.
P.P.S.S. This version of What the World Needs Now sung by Sara Bareilles is beautiful.
