Do you think, dear readers, it is just coincidence during the coldest months we celebrate the warmest emotions? Perhaps it’s all part of some glorious master plan that during the frostbite of February we pay homage to St. Valentine, the patron saint of romantic and courtly love. With lovey-dovey cards, candlelight dinners and sparkly gifts, we look at love as the diamond of emotions because it is so multifaceted. And priceless! In our everyday life, we use the word “love” frequently, as in “I’d love another piece of candy.” And what about songs? There’s hardly a song that doesn’t mention love.   

We love our families, each and every one of them. They are our mainstays in life. And we love our friends. They are the colors of our lives.

We love our leisure time, when our hearts and souls are nourished by favorite pastimes such as curling up on the sofa—or spending time in our gardens, listening to the melody of the birds. Simple joys.

And we love lunches and dinners with friends. We love e-mailing or calling our favorite people to keep in touch. We love traveling to far-away places to see other sides of life.

Yes, we love life, its many pleasures, challenges and rewards. It’s the ultimate gift, and every day we unwrap unexpected surprises.

Valentine’s Day has become larger than romance. It is that time of year to be thankful for the bounty of the love we have in our lives, to think about what warms us from within, touches our hearts and maybe even brings a tear to our eyes.

If you have the gift, give it. Your friends, your family, those whose paths cross with yours... this is your world.  Maybe it’s a small beginning but it’s a big emotion, love is.
