My favorite of holidays because it’s pink and full of love.
I am not one to need fancy gifts, flowers, dinner, blah blah blah. I would much rather have dinner at home with my family, in my sweats. I buy myself chocolates to hide from the kids and eat while I hide in the bathroom.
Mom life has changed this so much, ha!
This year though, I see things a little different. When I think of LOVE I think of a few different things this year.
Not just mushy gushy love. I think of the Love Jesus has for us. What he has done for us. Everything I have in this life is because he loved us so much to die for us.
Also, I think about the love I have discovered for myself. A few years ago, I never would have typed that out. Wouldn’t be able to admit that I love myself.
It’s so important to love yourself and truly know you are worthy. Trust me, it takes time and soul searching to be able to look in the mirror and love yourself.
It’s also in my heart today to tell you all to love everyone around you. Duh, right?! But it’s hard sometimes to get over a fight, squash that grudge. But you know what?! Feeling love for that person makes things just plain better.
Our world is so full of hate already. Why not makes your surroundings better by forgiving, forgetting and loving that person.
I pray you all feel love today and spread love to everyone you see. Valentine’s Day is not just for your spouse, kids, boyfriend, girlfriend- whatever. It’s about spreading love to ALL.
Remember to be kind and make this world a better place. I love you all ❤️
