Fabulous Fridays: Love

Valentine’s Day is just round the corner and it feels like love is in the air. Wherever I look my senses are bombarded with red hearts, red roses, red lingerie … red is the order of the day – with some pink thrown in for good measure. The day has, of course, become commercialised to the nth degree and the very word ‘love’ has become a cliché. So I guess I’ve become to Valentine’s Day what Scrooge was to Christmas.

But before I dismiss the whole shenanigan as the proverbial humbug let me just make it clear that I do believe in love. In True  Love. In the type of love that makes my spirit soar and my heart sing. And there are, of course, hundreds of thousands of quotes about love, in all languages and from all ages, yet my favourite one, the one that sums love up perfectly has to be this one:

So here’s to the little things. To the little nothings that mean so much. To the simple ways of saying “I love you”

  4. What a wonderful post on love. Perfect verse, perfect images. ( I love the little heart made of buttons :)

    And thank you so very much for praying for our young friend, Hannah. She has a serious brain injury from a gunshot wound (freak accident) and the doctors say if she makes it through the next five days her chances go up (they are at 1% right now.) So a lot of folks around the world are praying for a miracle...

  6. I loved this post...from the beautiful beginning to the heartfelt end. Your words from Corinthians are something I should read over each morning. It seems that everything would just slide into perspective once again.
