Valentine Expectations

Ladies,
As you know, there is a hugely popular holiday that many will celebrate in just under a week! Yes, Valentine’s Day! It is a day where we give our husband the opportunity to show his love with flowers, candy, dinner and maybe something shiny :o)

Are you already planning out how wonderful this holiday will be? Are you taking steps to make it extra special for your husband or even your children? If so, keep reading…

While Valentine’s Day has become a day about showing our love, I think that too often, as women, we tend to turn this day into a bit of an idol. If our husband fails to shower us with everything that *we* think he should, then we often feel let down or even unloved.

Why not make a change this year? This year, instead of planning for, and expecting, all of these outward displays of affections, why not make the decision to simply show love everyday to those around you. It is much better to make the effort to show love 365 days a year, than to put our focus on just one day.

Let us also consider this… the greatest act of love was the one that played out on the cross. It was when the God of the Universe, sent His son to earth, to be born, live a sin-free while life while pouring His life into others, to be condemned to death by those He came to save, to die a humiliating and painful death, to be buried in a tomb and to rise again on the third day. Jesus bore our sins because of His great love for us. His life was lived for us! Let that sink in… because that is true love.

This is the kind of love we need to show, each day, to those we love (and those we don’t *smile*). We must not look upon what it is costing us, but how it is blessing another.

May your year be filled with true love ❤

Love,
Dana

  5. If you aren’t sure what Valentine’s Day means to your spouse, you need to talk about it. Otherwise, your unspoken expectations will lead to huge disappointments.

  6. This especially applies to special occasions and holidays. My wonderful husband had a lonely childhood, and he learned not to have expectations of birthdays and holidays. As an adult, he really didn?t see them as a big deal at all.

  7. After some thought, we decided that since the tenent who lived in our rental had moved out, it would make the most sense to move in our rental so that we could get the house ready to sell.

  8. For the relationship-inclined, the day arrives and as much as any girl claims she does not fall for that romantic shit, she totally eats it up. She gets all dolled up in her new Bebe dress and is confident that she looks BANGIN?, not that that is relevant to the holiday anyway.

  9. If you’ve just started dating, a big gift can imply more depth to the relationship than is really there. It can also be awkward if the guy splurges on a big Valentine’s gift, but the woman doesn’t do the same.

  10. Challenges of studying abroad For those of you who dream of studying abroad or simply escaping from your parents, you are probably thinking studying abroad will be an easy transition. From personal experience, I can bet you that it is a lot of fun, but certainly not easy.
