Here's to wishing you a happy "Love Day."
I actually prefer the title, 'Love Day" over that of 'Valentines.'
For that name conjures up the heavily commercialized, gift-wrapped declarations of romantic love tend to run roughshod over the richer, broader, enduring potential of the day.
After all, what is L-O-V-E,
What is LOVE if it isn't born from such grittier ancient timeless qualities as patient and kindness. In describing what love is, it helps to also describe what it is not. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It does not dishonor, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
Whole new vistas
This opens up whole new vistas of potential for this day we call 'Valentines'. It ennobles it with a much higher purpose.
Happy LOVE Day
So, in this vein, I sincerely wish you a splendid 'Love' day.
