Love is not always hugs and kisses.It's not always perfect all of the time. It's a choice. And it takes work, some days more work than others I'm sure you will agree.
Love is patient, kind, compassionate, understanding, tolerant, hopeful, empathetic, trustworthy, loyal, it is all encompassing. When you truly understand the differences between you and your partner, and accept them, that is love. It's being supportive and doing what you do each day to make it count.
Love takes work. Work is hard. And sometimes, maybe even if it is only one day a year, we celebrate that love that we work so hard for. A day to truly enjoy the person you share your time with, the one you make compromises for, the one you are happy to come home to.
Do not forget to love this Valentine's Day. Whether it's a piece of lingerie, a new bedroom novelty to share, a romantic night together or a nice dinner. Make the effort to show the person you love that they mean the world to you. It makes all that hard work worth it.
