Love - a wildly misunderstood although highly desirable malfunction of the heart which weakens the brain, causes eyes to sparkle, cheeks to glow, blood pressure to rise and the lips to pucker. ~Author Unknown
Love is a grand thing. Love can span any distance known to man, it can break down walls that otherwise would be rock solid, it can turn men into a puddle of mushy goo, and turn tears into laughter. Love is just a beautiful thing.
Love also comes in all shapes, sizes, and flavors. You love your kids, but not the same way you love your spouse or significant other. You love your friends, but not the same way you love your mother.
A hallmark holiday or not, I love love, and I LOVE valentines day.
