Chocolates, romantic dinner, kisses, hugs, candlelight, cards, sugar cookies with pink frosting... yes, it's Valentine's Day.

What did I get for Valentine's Day you ask? Well, it's none of your business.

Do you remember being in grade school and counting your Valentine's cards? Perhaps you were disappointed because you had less cards than a friend. I think it was in those early years that I realized that Valentine's Day seems to be one big competition amongst the women of the world.

What did you do for Valentine's Day?
Who got the most beautiful card?
Which hubby/partner is the most romantic?
He bought you a diamond bracelet?
He whisked you away to Paris?
He wrote you a song, put it on YouTube and within hours had a record contract and $100,000?

Wow. That's a lot of pressure to put on the guys in our lives.

Ladies, we've got to learn to bite our tongues and stop cackling about the gifts we get from our partners. It's not a competition and it's certainly not about the gift... it's about your love for one another! Don't cheapen this day by focusing on what gift you've been given. Enrich the day by basking in the love that you and your soul mate have for one another!

I can confidently say that my husband loves me 24/7, every day of every month, of every year. I don't need Valentine's Day to coerce him to say he loves me or to demand a gift or attention. I revel in the every day. The little things... the special, tender moments that make me love him so much.

So, with that... Happy Valentine's Day. Enjoy the time with the one you love and remember, today is about loving one another.

Disclaimer: If you are my husband and you're reading this... this posting does not let you off the hook! *winks*
