A happy family will not wait for a special day to express their love among their family members. In my opinion, Valentine’s day is celebrated by someone who wishes to express his/her love to someone for the first time. Age is not a barrier to express our love to someone.
My husband is not fond of flowers and during the early years of marriage I used to be upset with him for not gifting me flowers even though he gave me other gifts 🙂 Over the years, I understood that flowers alone can never bring happiness we seek, but the support and unconditional love that a person has towards you gives immense gratification.
I talk to my parents and in-laws everyday and give a patient hearing to their feelings be it in joy or in sorrow. I express my affection to them at every possible instance and personally believe that their blessings will help us to overcome any hardship.
Kids take us to a higher level of maturity in life by making us understand that inspite of testing our patience levels through the day, a warm good night hug at the end of the day will make us understand the true meaning of love in life.
As the saying goes “you reap what you sow” – be positive and show true love and affection to the people around you and you will surely see the change.
Thanks for stopping by..
