There's a song by R & B soul icon Al Green that has the title of this post in it's refrain, "L-O-V-E, love...I'm talkin' 'bout love, ooohh". Now while he sings it way better than I do, the sentiment is worth noting.

Today is Valentine's Day and there are plenty of you out there who've spent a minute or two deciding on the "perfect" gift for your special someone. There are also a lot of you still undecided on whether or not you should give flowers, candy, a stuffed bear, make dinner, go out to dinner...the list is endless. In speaking with a good friend of mine, he readily admitted that Valentine's Day and all of its ensuing "hype" makes him nervous and full of angst. His theory is that if he doesn't "get it right", he'll be paying the piper for the rest of the year.

So, if you are feeling the same - take this advice. Love is good 365 days a year, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Are you in love with someone? Tell them, show them, appreciate them all of the time - not just on February 14th. If you can understand and appreciate that sentiment, Valentine's Day will be EVERY single day of your life......

So true. If you wait until February 14th to show your love, your marriage will not last very long.

Love & Soul Always, Kay
