Love is a word that can be witnessed in many ways. It is a four letter word that has more meanings than any other word in the English language. Years ago, there was a popular cartoon with a single frame stating, "Love is...". Each one had a different expression of love from "Love is a smile", "Love is a flower", "Love is a hug" - you get the picture. February is a month when we celebrate Valentine's Day - a day dedicated to sharing our love. Red hearts are hung in store fronts and classroom windows. Cards are created by students of all ages and pink cupcakes find their way into lunch boxes. It's a holiday that breaks up the cold winter doldrums. It's a day for young and old to say I Love You to their special someone.
Love is an emotion much grander than its' four letter existence. It is more than a card, a box of candy or a rose. It is what nourishes us beyond food and drink. It sustains us when we are down and recharges us when we need a lift. It has the power to put a smile on the face of the youngest child and a tear in the eye of the oldest man. Love has the ability to make us feel uncomfortable and also safe and secure. It is a mixture of feelings that are as complicated as life itself.
Love surpasses Valentine's Day and needs to be recognized and shared everyday. May you celebrate the spirit of February 14 each day with those you love, laugh and cherish.
