Well people, it’s America’s official day to love and be loved. All of us ladies are scrambling to see what we can do or wear to blow our man’s mind so he can reciprocate and make us feel like no other woman can come close to how amazing we are in his eyes.
Aaannnddd all the guys are trying to figure out what they can do to get us to be everything they deem sexy, enticing, interesting, exciting and enjoyable about women…
TINA: My only problem is, I’ve been doing this 15 years, well 10 years officially, and my husband already knows that I love him with all the love that I have. So how am I supposed to make this new and exciting and just worth all the work; Erica, help?
ERICA: Well Tina, I think people are looking for acceptance and validation too, not just blowing each other’s minds! On Valentine’s Day you want to hold someone that you’ve gone through the fire with; someone that understands your craziness and loves you anyway. Someone you can sit in the car with and not say a word because your heart feels safe; who looks at you and their expressions makes you smile from the inside out, it’s mushy but true. But its not going to “all of sudden” feel all beautiful, if you haven’t taken the time before national love day to show your mate how you feel!
TINA: Okay, so basically you’re saying: 1) I should have started thinking of everything good about my man and sharing it with him daily, via spoken words, email, text or note and 2) I should have been looking into his eyes the way I did on our wedding day or our most special and intimate days, all week long. And 3) I actually need to combine 1 and 2 and give my most heartfelt, passionate, meaning words of expression to him on Valentine’s Day (today). 4) I have to smell good and look good in something enticing that he’d pick for me, and 5) then blow his mind with the final presentation of the evening???
ERICA: It looks like we have our love to-do list people. We’ve done it before, we’re doing it today, and we’d do it again in a heartbeat because when you have love or even the promise of love, that’s genuine, that’s without condition, that’s pure, that’s willing to do the work so that it can work, why wouldn’t we do everything in our power to make our companions smile from cheek to cheek? I know life is busy and hectic and a juggling act for many of us but if our special someone’s love, adds value to our lives, all the extras should be our pleasure, which becomes their pleasure.
MARY MARY: Love is patient and kind. Love is not jealous or boastful or proud or rude. Love does not demand its own way. Love is not irritable, and it keeps no record of when it has been wronged. It is never glad about injustice but rejoices whenever the truth wins out. Love never gives up, never loses faith, is always hopeful and endures through every circumstance. (Real) Love will last forever……(1 Corinthians 13: 4-8)
Easy, not always, but worth it, YES!
Now if it’s more of a task than a joy, you’ve got something else going on and we’re going to have to talk about that in a whole different blog, lol.
Until next time,
