Valentine’s is here again and this year I would like to reflect on another aspect of love.
A group of friends and I were discussing the love aspect of Valentine’s. The conversation moved on to what to give our loved ones and then, we started to explore what we received from our loved ones. It is this receiving and giving aspect of “Love” that made the conversation move to what each one of us valued about the love aspect of a Valentine’s gift.
One explained that she does not need a reminder that is made up. Just because it’s now become a big industry to give someone you love something on Valentine’s, is it more meaningful than a rose given at another time? chocolate? hug? kiss? or something else? Do we need a reminder to tell a loved one we love them? or for them to affirm their love?
