There is nothing greater than the power of love. Love has the ability to change your life. To change your outlook. To change the path you are walking. With love anything is possible.
February 14th is the day we celebrate love. Some receive flowers, some jewelry, some chocolate and if you are lucky maybe all three. The day is suppose to be a declaration of the amount of love a person has for another. However for me, one day out of the year does not define the love that I have for my husband. It is not measured in the amount of presents or chocolate I give. It is not measured in the sappy card that is given. It is not measured by the kind deeds that are exchanged throughout the day. One day of the year does not have the ability to show you just how much I love you. It is impossible to celebrate our love for just one day.
There are 365 days in the year. 365 opportunities to hold your hand, look in your eyes, tell you I love you. I spend each and every day showing you that I love you. I spend each day nurturing our love and watching it grow. I want to be present in each and every day. Fully consumed by our love and cultivating the possibilities. If anything my love is measured by the actions and kindness that I give. It is measured by the amount of time I fill my mind with thoughts of you. It is measured by the commitment I have for being yours forever. My heart swells at the very thought of you. All my days are spent showing you that you are loved, you are cherished, you are always in my thoughts. I want to celebrate our love each and everyday.
Therefore for me, one day does not define the love that I have for you.

thank you for reading!
There are 365 days to love. It doesn’t have to be one day of love. As a matter of fact, it’s time that Valentine’s Day becomes a day to rest from all the loving the rest of the whole year!
Love This! Totally Agree.
thank you for stopping by to read!
Agreed! I do not want overpriced flowers once a year! I want (and get) thoughtful gifts throughout the year (thoughtful does not equal expensive).
My husband does the same. Thoughtful gifts throughout the year. It means so much to me to see the time and effort he puts into them.
This is so wise! After 28 years of marriage, I couldn’t agree more. Yay for love!
Agreed! Yay for love!
Agreed! I love holidays so I definitely partake in Valentine’s Day- but I try to love people we’ll always! Would you share this with us? http://www.akreativewhim.com/sleepless-solo
I partake too but love to love every day of the year! Not sure how to share with you but would love to!
This is so important to remember!
Yes! Thank you for reading!
I love it because these are my thoughts, too. Love isn’t measured in gifts on one special day. Love is measured by the little moments and things we do for one another every single day of the year. Love is the vows we took and how we live by them all the time. Don’t get me wrong, I love all the pink and red hearts and glitter and I love the flowers and chocolates and gifts but those things don’t make or break our relationship. They don’t define our love for one another. They’re perks, sure but we celebrate our love all year long.
So perfectly said! I agree those are perks! I like that. I enjoy my flowers and chocolate but those do not define the love my husband has for me. Those are the perks!! lol
Great sentiment. What I learned this year about Valentine’s Day is that expressing love is not just intended to be done in between spouses or significant others. My stepdaughters made us dinner for Valentine’s and sharing the holiday with them made it more memorable to me than many “romantic” Valentine’s occasions over the years.
Thank you for sharing your story with me. It absolutely is not just for romance. We spent the day with our girls, playing games and had a beautiful dinner. It was a great day for love!
Yes, I love this!! So much truth <3
Simple and straightforward! You are so right too!!
I love this! We call it LOVE Day and celebrate our families love!
Thank you so much! We call it the same thing!
100% yes! I think romantic gestures on the other days are even better!
They definitely are!
So beautifully well written– and couldn’t agree MORe!
Thank you so much!
So true! Have to show that love the other 364 days! Totally agree 🙂
