Valentine’s Day

February 14, 2012

Today is Valentine’s Day.

This will be a great day for some people and a lousy day for many others.  I believe that many in  American society have a distorted view of love.  True love is not simply the infatuation of a moment, or of a few weeks or months, or even years: but rather it is a life-long commitment of going through life together.

For better for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, for as long as we both shall live.

True love is not a fleeting passion,  but a commitment to share in the varied experiences of life together; and to find ways to make the most of the journey.
