ValentineS DaY MusingS

Are most of us happy?

Are we “in love”?

Oftentimes we are caught simply waiting for that special something to come along that is finally going to “make us happy.”

More money?
Better career.
Well behaved or successful children.
Or……..That “special someone” who will finally make life worth living.

Are you looking for the perfect person with the same dreams, and ambitions, who will love you exactly the way you want and need to be loved?

Deny it or not, we all yearn for companionship.
In the metropolis of millions, no one wants to feel lonely.

Waiting for that perfect someone? Ready to go. Just add water?

Love is seldom what we expect.
For anyone who is or has been in love, we know that Love can change people deeply and profoundly. It can modify your taste in things you never imagined: music, movies, foods, locales, and all sorts of opinions and ideas.

You can change someone else’s level of existence simply by loving them, and have your level of existence changed simply by being loved by someone.

Sure, we have the power to give and receive love.
But beware sweet friends. There are those, that for reasons unbeknownst to you, will not be changed by your love, no matter how deep.

See that for what it is and separare yourself as lovingly as you can.

Do not get consumed by the darkness and pain of forever trying to change someone. It is neither your responsibility nor your right to do so.

You can show the path, as you understand it, but it is up to them to take up the task of treading upon it.

Do relationships need constant care?

Funny how most will take care with their flowers and plants, to cultivate them, to get that perfect, beautiful and healthy tomato. Certainly not by just tossing any seed in any kind of soil and giving it as little care as possible.

If that seems ridiculously apparent, then why do you suppose people continually take such a blase, non chalant attitude with their love relationships. Not tending to them daily. Not offering sunshine nor shade.

Perhaps the most excellent gift you can offer your loved one this Valentines Day (or any day) is some contemplation, self examination and soul searching.

After all……..
Do you truthfully know the needs of your loved one?

Perhaps that is why True Love carries in tow the overriding precondition of: Self-reflection.

Happy Valentines Day sweet friends.
For You.

If by chance you are alone,
Be with me, WHT,
the Angel unknown…………..

Permit my daily words some comfort and warmth to your day lend,
As we yearn like a wave for God’s smooth sand.
Though my words are often black with rage and grief,
In your comments and responses, I discover a strong, serene belief.

Though my passions are at times spent and due,
All I am and have I give to you,
And while every life is secretly lived behind a sheltering veil,
….Because of you, in my battle, I refuse to fail.

Life is utterly enchanted, my friends……….
and Blessings?..Those are the things we take for granted.

Happy Valentines Day..from me to You.

Spreading the love to my friends over at Pirate’s Cove, Stuck On Stupid, Rosemary’s Thoughts, Conservative Cat, and Right Truth, thanks to Linkfest Haven Deluxe.

    A lovely, thoughtful post.
    It always saddens me to see couples who have been together for a long time allow their relationship to become mere habit.
    I’ve been married for 26 years and literally every day I manage to find some way of letting my wife know how much she means to me, even if it’s only ringing her at work, making her lunch as well as mine, cooking a meal she enjoys.
    And flowers for no reason–just “because”.
    There are dozens of mundane little things that we can do for our partners which reinforce the bonds of affection–so easy and simple to do, yet seemingly so hard for some people to learn.

    Berkeley Protest(s) and updates…

    I was unable to make it to Berkeley today, but I have some very good links that I can introduce to you and links of which you are already aware. This first link is one of a very good writer. I could not tell which side of the protest he would be ……..

    ‘Love is enchanted’. Nice quote, Angel and sweet post. Love is the strongest force on this planet. If we all devoted ourselves to perfecting love, there would be no more problems. I firmly believe that.

    Mr. AOW and I have been married for over 35 years.

    Yes, time does change us somewhat, particularly our physical appearance. But basic character traits rarely change.

    Choose your mate wisely. That’s my best advice for staying in love.

    Very well put, beautiful, you’re a poet as well!

    A very “sweet” post for Valentine’s Day, Angel! I hope your Valentine’s Day is wonderful. :)

  9. Mustang says:

    Love is to share life together,
    Building special plans for two.
    To work, side by side,
    And smile with pride,
    As ever slowly, dreams come true.

    (Stolen from the internet)

    HAPPY VALENTINES DAY, EVERYONE.

    There’s a song that says: “If you want to know what real love is … LOOK AT US” That song is about hubby and me. We have the same basic beliefs about religion, love, life, morals. We are complete opposites on some things, but I think God planned it that way. We compliment each other.

  15. Kevin says:

    I’m just glad it’s over. I hate Valentines day! Never a fan of ‘proving my love’ it’s even worse when it has to be done on queue!

    Don’t tell anyone I hate Valentines day please. I don’t want any trouble.
