Happy Valentine’s Day

Posted by ididnotknowwhattosay on February 14, 2011

In the spirit of Valentine’s Day, I thought I would repost one of my favorite quotes for this time of year.

Sooner or later we begin to understand that love is more than verses on valentines and romance in the movies. We begin to know that love is here and now, real and true, the most important thing in our lives. For love is the creator of our favorite memories and the foundation of our fondest dreams. Love is a promise that is always kept, a fortune that can never be spent, a seed that can flourish in even the most unlikely of places. And this radiance that never fades, this mysterious and magical joy, is the greatest treasure of all – one known only by those who love….Unknown
