I know people have very strong opinions of Valentine's Day. I have heard many people go on and on that it is a manufactured holiday by the card industry. That it puts too much pressure on people, that it is insincere, etc., etc. I would be the first to admit that I am not a romantic, but I love Valentine's Day. I don't expect big gifts or some amazing day. I would never expect a proposal or marriage on that day or for my relationships to be magically better, but I do love the idea of taking a day to just say I love you to all the people you care about. We are so busy living our lives, sometimes we forget to slow down and tell your spouse, significant other, friend, parent, child that you love them. Just for being them. To all my family and friends, I say:
I LOVE YOU!
Happy Valentine's Day
