What is love? Can it be defined? I love you.  Those words mean everything.  Say so much, but they are not enough.  Love really is all about the action.  More about the giving then the receiving.  Yet when we give and give we never seem to run out.  Love multiplies.  It should never divide.  In essence love is the willful intent to serve the well being of another. The most profound and unconditional ways one puts another ahead of themselves. Do you love?   Do you love enough? Do you love unconditionally?  Do you get enough... give enough?  Do you allow it to know no boundaries? Do you believe it can never be destroyed?  Have you been addicted to it?  Burned by it? Shut down to it?  Have you given it at all costs?  

It's amazing how when someone tells you that they love you it is wonderful and good... but it does not compare to when you have lost that love.  If someone takes it away, ends a friendship, says they don't love you anymore, or dies and leaves you knowing it's still there but in an unfathomable way that is torture... you are so overwhelmingly filled with pain and sorrow.  Is that because we take love and all it's beauty for granted?  Once you get love, you assume that it will always be there in the same comfortable capacity.  

Love takes work.  In all areas and in all aspects.  Work that is worth it.  There is no price to put on it.  There is not a greater treasure then to have gained love.  We should treat and value it always like a priceless gift that could never be replaced.  That should be done everyday.  Can you imagine if everyone tried to love just a little bit harder and a little bit more and not let all the "mess" and "chaos" of life get in the way. Love more, worry less.  Love life and be brave.  Love yourself enough so that you can love others and love God above all things........

It's Valentines Day and everyone, or most people are all about the love today.  As for me, not the biggest fan of Valentines Day... It's a fine day.  Saint Valentine was a cool dude.  I think we should remember to show our love everyday in constant and unending ways.  Valentines may not be my "fav", yet, I am a hopeless romantic. I am a BIG BIG fan of LOVE in all it's many styles and flavors, from friendship to passion and every relation and connection with heart strings in between.  Today doesn't have to be about cupids and arrows.  (Athough, there better be chocolate!!! Oh, who am I kidding, I work chocolate in everyday. Lol)  But it should be, like all days about L-O-V-E!  

Enjoy your day!  
I hope you all are blessed enough to feel the LOVE <3 <3 <3
