For the LOVE of 2017

For some reason I was determined not to write about anything Valentines Day or love related this week (because I figured that the internet is usually bombarded with that kind of stuff around this time and wanted to give y’all a little break).

But….

Then I realized that I’m Emily and its impossible for me to not talk about love (or any holiday that involves love, chocolate, gifts and LOVE)

  …………………………………………………………………………………………

If you know me you know that

I love LOVE.

I cry in all the lovey dovey movies, I could get lost in the romantic scenes on the pages of a book (I cry over them too), I love weddings and fairy tales and all things that involve happily ever afters. (And yes, you guessed it! I def cry during most of these. Seriously I’m such a Cry Baby guys)

And most of all…

I love God, who LITERALLY is LOVE.

I think you understand my point here.

 …………………………………………………………………………………………

And so all of a sudden February 15th is really important for me y’all…I’ll tell you why.

It’s the day after the holiday that reminds us to be proactive about our Love.

It’s the day after the day that the world remembers to buy their loved ones flowers and chocolates, and give compliments, and call home, and go to dinner with family, and date and say I LOVE YOU.

So what’s so important about February 15th?

It’s the day that we get to show that Love isn’t just a “one holiday” feeling and that the people that we care about are worthy of being appreciated and proactively loved every single day for the rest of the year.

Now…. This is way easier said than done.

Love is TOUGH.

It requires work… So let’s remember not to only work towards love on the big important holidays but instead every single day.

Let’s vow to make Valentines Day everyday.

Everyday our loved ones need to be reminded that they are loved, every Tuesday they might need some encouragement, every so often they may crave flowers and chocolates and phone calls and family dinners.

On February 15th (and the rest of the year) Let us not forget to

CELEBRATE LOVE EVERYDAY!
