I'll admit it. I am a mushy, gushy, huggy, lovey type of person. I love to love people. I love hugs, and snuggles. I don't like to hold in an "I love you", or "I like you". I'll give you a hug or a pat on the shoulder if I feel like it.
I have this inner desire to let people know that I care about them. And I'm kind of glad that I do because it seems to help most people and you know what it makes me feel good too.
I know I am different in this way from most people, and the trend seems to be hold in your emotions, don't show weakness. But I don't see anything wrong with being warm and affectionate with those you care about. I don't see emotions as a weakness. OK, so I don't walk up to strangers and hug them, but I'll give a friend a hug. I'll take an extra minute to tell someone I admire them.
I hope you enjoy this Valentine's Day as much as I do. I hope you feel loved, and share your love with others. In my opinion Valentine's Day is not necessarily a romantic day, it is a day to tell people you care about them. So, instead of waiting around for something special to happen to you, let's be the one doing something special for others, friends/family, etc. Just like I told my daughter this morning, make sure you tell everyone you care about that you care about them.
I am a married mother of 3 trying to get through the ups and downs of life in one piece.
I enjoy pondering life's deep questions, and laughing at the small things. I am a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, and find great joy in my beliefs.
