Keep love in your heart.
A life without it is like a sunless garden
When the flowers are dead
The consiousness of loving
And being loved brings
A warmth and richness to life that nothing else can bring
Happy Valentines Day!
I love this day. I just love its significance. I love all the red in the air. I love the anticipation. I love the over the top nature of the day. I love it. I just do.
My song of the day is a bit controversial because i know so many young women that cant stand it:
Destiny's Child - Cater to you
But i adore this song. I am not a Beyonce fan but i am able to put aside my dislike for her to appreciate a good song.
I am a giver and have always been and i see absolutely nothing wrong with catering to my lover. I expect to be catered to as well. To do things for each other that you will bring a smile to the other's face. Making yourself a little uncomfortable for the other person. Of course the part of the song that says "tap me on the shoulder and i'll roll over" is a bit much but the idea behind the song gets to me.
Love is such a wonderful thing. I dont like feet except my own but in love, i will give him a pedicure. I will fly halfway across the world to suprise him just because. All of a sudden in love, there is that extra care that i take to make sure i look cute. Even if i am in joggers and a tee shirt, there will be a little extra care taken in making sure they at least match - LOL. Let's not get started on the letters and text messages. Corny stuff like mixed cds, cards and gifts for no reaso....Ahhhh. The insanity of love.
My point though is to not want to cater to your lover in one way or the other seems a bit odd to me. Love is not a competition, its not about power plays, who is weaker or stronger, its not about feminism or chauvinism. Its just 2 people hooked on each other. And if in the course of the relationship, he decides to paint my toenails or i decide to wear a Manchester United Jersey to bed because he gets some kind of kick out of it, i promise i wont tell anyone. It will just be between us, about us - doing the things that come naturally to us because we are in love.
