If it somehow slipped past you, today is Valentine’s Day. Usually on this day we celebrate by enjoying a nice dinner and a bottle of wine. But, this V-day is different. You are several thousand miles away. There will be no fancy dinner or bottle of wine. No dorky Valentine’s cards or token box of chocolates. But, I can’t say that it really matters. Expressions of love occur every day—not just one day out of the year. The nice dinner and box of chocolates don’t count as much as the daily pep talks (Yes, there are daily pep talks). They don’t count as much as believing in my dreams even when I begin to doubt them. And, they certainly don’t count as much as the way you make me feel.

Happy Valentine’s Day, sweetie. I love you.
