Valentine's Day in the past have been so much different than what I feel this year. It isn't about the dinner out, the gifts, or the chocolate. It truly is about love. A love that has been tested and tried in the last year. Our love as a family. Though we might seem strained and stressed I really believe that we have a stronger love and bond than we ever have had before.
While we won't be getting dressed up and heading to dinner and gifting one another with something sparkly and sweet we will be spending a night that is meant for love with our littlest loves.
Valentine's Day brings me a time to reflect on what true love is. True love is what Jeremy and I have built on for 10 whole years! This year is different, we are stronger and better. Life hasn't been kind but certainly we have seen the blessings and love from strangers to remind us how important love is.
While I am eating a heart shaped pizza on Valentine's Day with my pizza loving kiddos I will look at them lovingly and thank God for what I have been given. I am with out a doubt a very lucky mother, woman and wife to have what I have.
Through troubles and struggles we are stronger and full of love. This Valentine's Day means I get to reflect on what love really is. Not gifts, not food and not candy...but simply my family.
