Happy Valentine.

Happy day.  I've always loved this day.  This is my favorite holiday after Halloween, and I feel that its meaning becomes lost, and distorted with unnecessary expectations and pressures, but in truth, the meaning of today is simple.  For me, Valentine's Day is remembering the love that has nurtured you, that has carried you through the difficult times, the love that has made you who you are today.  The love that sustains you now, and all that you will become tomorrow.  For me, it's taking a moment to stand in awe and gratitude of those certainties.  Not a measure of how much you love, but how much you are loved by others.  And all that love can do for us, if we let it.  Happy Valentine's Day.
