I shared this last week on Instagram and decided to share it on my blog and add a few things to the list.
This month we celebrate Valentine’s Day, yes another holiday created by Hallmark but there is history behind the holiday of roses, candy, expensive dinners, or gifts depending on who your partner is. There are so many stories about Saint Valentine and the meaning behind this holiday of love. I won’t get into the history, just GOOGLE it!
What does love mean to me? This question is both easy and challenging. Here goes the babbling:
Love is a feeling.
Love is bigger than everyone of us.
Love is not only romantic.
Love helps us live and grow.
Love protects and connects.
We can’t survive without it.
Love at first sight is looking at your new born baby.
Love is guiding, teaching, protecting, practicing and learning.
Love is silence.
Love is loud.
Love is making sacrifices.
Love is giving and receiving.
Love is human.
Love is not cruel or mean.
Love is not only about making it.
So many are wanting, seeking and fighting over it.
Look no further than within yourself.
Love is accepting.
Love is respect.
Love is gratitude.
Love is not hurtful or manipulation.
Love is truth.
Love is without ego.
Love is passion for what sets your soul on fire.
Love is a state of being.
Love is our dreams.
Love is our actions.
Love shouldn’t hurt.
Love should be equal.
Love is skinny, fat, short, tall, black, white and every color of the rainbow.
Love is life and life is love.
The strongest love we will ever know is inside of you.
The strongest love I have ever felt is being a mom. The kind of love that can make your heart cry when they are sad or sick. Struggling and confused. The “what if’s” that keeps us up all night.
This love is the strongest.
The strength that keeps me going. The drive, passion, and sacrifices is all because of the love for my kids. This is love. This is the strongest love I have ever known. It was love at first sight. 💕
