Valentine's Love

Seeing as it is Valentine’s Day (or soon to be...), I thought it appropriate to share one of my favorite lovey-dovey poems...
i carry your heart
-e.e. cummings 
i carry your heart with me(i carry it in
my heart)i am never without it(anywhere
i go you go,my dear; and whatever is done
by only me is your doing,my darling)
i fear
no fate(for you are my fate,my sweet)i want
no world(for beautiful you are my world,my true)
and it's you are whatever a moon has always meant
and whatever a sun will always sing is you

here is the deepest secret nobody knows
(here is the root of the root and the bud of the bud
and the sky of the sky of a tree called life;which grows
higher than the soul can hope or mind can hide)
and this is the wonder that's keeping the stars apart

i carry your heart(i carry it in my heart)

My feelings on Valentine’s Day are a tad mixed.  I think it is sort of stupid that as a society, we need a “holiday” designated to shower the one you love with gifts and flowers, and to have your undying affection written for you in a Hallmark card.  Is it just me, or does the whole “I got you this/these for Valentine’s Day” sort of takes away from it all??   I think it’s most special when (on occasion) Ryan comes home from work and thought to stop off to grab a bouquet, just to say “I love you,” or “Thanks for all you do for me,” or both :) I like to do the same thing for him, but not with flowers.  If I’m out grocery shopping or out running errands in general, sometimes I’ll pick him up something small just so he knew I was thinking of him while I was out.  I say all this - blah, blah, blah... But if Ryan did not get me something for Valentine's Day, I would probably be a little crushed.  Haha, is that wrong??  Maybe it is, I don't know.

I have to add that while at Safeway today, Ryan and I saw a balloon in the floral department that read (and I am not kidding)... "OMG I Heart You!"

So, squeeze and hug the one (or ones) you love today - and everyday!!  It is a special day (even though cliche) to let them know how special they are to you, and why you are so lucky to have in them your life.  It also seems appropriate to share this link.  The actions and song just give me the shivers.  It's amazing what a hug can do for someone:

Take Luck,
