You know what though? Every holiday there is, has been commercialized and skewed from what it should be. Santa, Easter Bunny, Veteran's Day furniture sales.....
And some make the argument that you should show people you love them every day. Not just one. Well that would hold true for every holiday as well. Be thankful everyday, not just Thanksgiving. Celebrate Jesus every day, not just Christmas and Easter, etc.
But that's not the point. You get out, what you put in. What's important are the feelings and emotions behind your motives.
So with that in mind, I take Valentine's Day, jack it up, put it on a pedestal and ooze my love all over my family from beginning to glorious end. And hopefully, with every breath they take, they know that I love them to the moon and back.
It was Monday. And it was Lovely.
