Those who totally know me, know that I’m not really a huge fan of Valentine’s. 😅 Of love, yes – since I’m a romantic at heart and I believe that love should be celebrated every day and not just once in a year. But I don’t begrudge those that celebrate it. Valentines, after all, is a day to celebrate all kinds of love. I still like seeing couples become extra lovey-dovey during this time or even families and little kids expressing love to their parents and siblings. It’s still a nice feeling. 😊
Just this late morning, my 4-year old little boy came home from his speech therapy and asked me first thing when he walked in the door, “Mommy, is today Valentines?” I answered yes and then, without preamble – he hugged me tight and said in a loud voice, “I love you, Mommy!”
My heart melted. I mean, it’s not unusual for my kids to come up to me and just tell me that they love me out of the blue but today being Valentines, somehow felt special. 😍
Same goes for the hubby, who came home earlier than his usual time from work today, saying that he wanted to take the kiddos out on a date later. He walked in the door and I heard him ask our son to give me something. Then Coniah came running and gave me this long-stemmed rose. I had to chuckle because he screamed, “Mommy! This is from me!” Even though it was the hubby who brought it home. 😄 It’s a very sweet gesture that I totally appreciate.
I’m not really hard to please. I’m very low maintenance and can appreciate any little gesture of love. I don’t need a huge declaration and somehow, my family knows this. I mean – I do the same thing to them everyday and show them in little ways how much I love and appreciate them. I always say that it’s the little things that count. Because a little thing could mean a huge thing to another. 😁
Sorry, I feel like I’ve rambled this as I wrote down my thoughts and they’re all jumbled. 😅
But anyway, I’m off to fix myself since the hubby said we’re going out once our eldest daughter comes home from school. It’s family date night tonight. 🤗
