I got to thinking the other day. If all goes as planned (and hoped for!), this will likely be my last Valentine’s Day without children. When we planned our lavish and lovely Love Day getaway, we did so because my wife and I seriously need some time away to relax and just simply be together. Our work schedules are fully opposite, and the sadness and stress of the 2nd-trimester miscarriage of our twins have both of us in some dire need of a time-out.
My last childless Valentine’s Day (God willing!) also got me thinking about how much love I have to give my current and future family, and what I’d like to teach my children about love.
Tell me, what lessons have you taught your kids about love? What do you hope to teach them? I’d love to hear about them in the comments!
“Love has no desire but to fulfill itself. To melt and be like a running brook that sings its melody to the night. To wake at dawn with a winged heart and give thanks for another day of loving.” ~Kahlil Gibran
