|This is Xavier from last year's Valentine's Day, due to the storm no photo shoot this year! Happy Valentine's Day from our family to yours!|
Instead of focusing on the people in your life that you do not have to love. Valentine's Day is a day to celebrate the people in your life who you do love! You should not only celebrate your spouse (if you have one), but your children, your parents, your grandparents, your siblings, your good friends. Today is a day to remember love. I know it is hard to see throughout the numerous Hallmark cards, boxes of chocolates and high prices of flowers that will go down in price tomorrow. However, centuries ago Valentine's Day was started as a celebration of love. Love is what makes the world go around. You may disagree or think perhaps it is just a "hippie idea" however, without love, and passion there is no meaning in life. You are a robot that has shut down their emotions and are just walking through life waiting for something to happen. Yet, when you show love for the people in your life it warms their hearts and yours.
Today wish someone you do not know a Happy Valentine's Day. Today instead of focusing on who is not in your life focus on who is and spread that around to those you come in contact with. After all, love should be celebrated everyday, but if you cannot do that everyday at least you can celebrate love on Valentine's Day as that is what the day is all about.
So Happy Valentine's Day to all our friends, family and readers! We hope your day is filled with love.
