Love is a symbol of eternity. It wipes out all sense of time, destroying all memory of a beginning and all fear of an end.                                                — Author Unknown

 

With February comes pink hearts, red roses and excessive sugar consumption. Valentine’s Day celebrates love, or at least the love typically depicted as stereotypical romantic comedy dramatic swooning love. However, Valentine’s Day needn’t only celebrate romantic love: people should take the opportunity to celebrate all kinds of love.

In the hectic crush of daily living, it’s easy to forget that what matters most in life is our relationships. Valentine’s Day forces us to stop, at least for a moment, to let someone know we care. And, if we’re lucky, someone will say they care about us, too.

What’s better in life than telling someone you love them or having them tell you they love you?

What’s better than a surprise bouquet of flowers? A box of chocolates or candy? What’s sweeter than a child offering a teacher or parent a card made of construction paper, yarn and perhaps a doily or two?

Life is too serious. We need to love and laugh and enjoy the people who matter most to us.
