Don't Forget These Valentines!
Posted 2/10/2012 10:59:00 AM

Some of the TV sitcoms rolled out their Valentine's Day episodes this past week. I noticed the theme running through a few of them was this. So often, we take the little things we do each day for and with each other for granted. Isn't that ever true?


Is your relationship based on the amount of flowers given? The size of a box of chocolates? Or on a surprise getaway weekend to some exotic resort? It's so easy to get wrapped up in trying to find the perfect gift for that one day. But sometimes you have to stop and realize that the things you experience each day in a relationship are many times gifts themselves.


While they're not necessarily glamorous acts on their own, things like volunteering to take out the trash, agreeing to run to the store to get medicine or groceries, taking care of the kids so your partner can have some time off, are all acts of love. When you think about it, isn't it nice to have someone you can lean on every day? And he or she can do the same?


Yes, Valentine's Day is a wonderful time to tell the one you love how you feel, but don't forget all those other days in your relationship. They may not be filled with over the top goodies and surprises. But they can add up to something really special. In my opinion, sitting on the couch on a Friday night, in sweats, watching a movie together can be just as sweet.
