Valentine’s Day is Friday. (Husbands, read that sentence again!)
Leah and I have never made a huge deal of the holiday, but we always go out on a date and enjoy some time with the kids. We don’t buy extravagant gifts, but I do still ask her to be my valentine. Of course, now Turner asks her, too, so I have some competition!
I hope you are planning something special for the day, but I’d like to ask: why wait until Friday? Why wait until Valentine’s Day?
You don’t have to wait to tell your husband or wife “I love you.”
You don’t have to wait to get a little surprise gift.
You don’t have to wait to get a sitter and go out to eat.
You don’t have to wait to send a romantic text or email.
You don’t have to wait to add a few extra seconds to a kiss or hug.
Holidays are wonderful, and they do help us mark certain dates as special. Valentine’s Day should help focus us on our marriage and how blessed we are to have one another. But shouldn’t that be true each and every day?
Take a moment today and do something “just because” that too many folks will wait until Friday to do. Make it more like Valentine’s Day before Valentine’s Day ever comes.
QUESTION: Why do we wait for holidays too often to show our spouse how special they are? Share your thoughts in the comments.
