The only thing we never get enough of is love; and the only thing we never give enough of is love.–Henry Miller
It is that time of the year again..it is Valentine’s day! The day of love, in which everyone is scrambling to do something special for that special someone in their lives! Hopefully something different, something extraordinary that will make the love of your life feel just a bit more special. Perhaps flowers, a special dinner out, a night together at a hotel away from distractions, or just simply a time for some undivided attention that breaks away from the normal hustle and bustle of everyday life.
It is difficult to measure love, and I believe that a lot of the love that is shown on a day-to-day basis can tend to get overlooked. I have not been Mr. Romantic with flowers in my hand, or an outstanding poem or song written for my wife. Unfortunately for me, I am sort of more the “simple guy” who shows my love by being there on a day-to-day basis attempting to do those many needed tasks or errands to render life at least a wee bit easier for her.
When you have been married or together with someone for so very many years, this demonstration of love can appear to be neglect. It is not seen so “extraordinary” or “special” anymore since you can grow accustomed to it and lose appreciation for the one who is and has been there for you through thick and thin. That is why for so many, they feel as though they have “lost” that love and are no longer able to see it for what it really is. But in today’s world, it means a great deal! All too often people run away in search of that “Hollywood romance” dream life, leaving behind them what was actually real love all along!
You can never give too much love, that is true…but you will most likely never feel as though you had too much. It is in the little things day by day that love needs to be manifested, received, appreciated in order to recognize that you have never ever lost what you need and desire, you just need to look at it in the right perspective.
Happy Valentine’s day! Do something extraordinary for that special someone! Can you see the love?
