I hope someone makes you laugh.
I hope someone makes a gesture...
That brings a smile to your face.
Somewhere in the bustle of your day, I hope there is a moment...
That is very, very sweet.
I hope you are finding a way to put love out there, for that is the true magic of Valentine's Day. It allows you to see the world differently, it wraps you up in the ancient hum and glow that makes everything seem new.
Putting love out there steadies, elevates, and illuminates. It is neither flimsy nor marked by frilly expressions. It is simple and steady. It is warm and generous. It is a way to proceed independent of any other condition. It stays the distance after all the rocky roads. It has its own way of filling you, its own way of making you feel things are going to be all right.
Love doesn't always come in the way you wish it would.
I wish it would.
I don't mean this in a fanciful, mystical way. I mean it in a plain and practical way:
look for ways to put love out there in the way you wish it would come to you.
But it is Valentine's Day, after all, so I suppose I mean it plainly and fancifully alike.
I hope you have a lovely day, dear reader. I hope it is filled with very good things.
I wish you everything tender, sweet, and thrilling on this magical of all magical days.
