Love day, every day

Remembering how we used to decorate Valentine mailboxes in elementary school, made out of shoe boxes, construction paper and doilies. Always hoping they'd runneth over with lots of cards and conversation hearts on the 14th, but feeling a little nervous not quite knowing how it would pan out. That's why I was so happy when my own children were young and a note came home in their backpacks around the first of February saying to simply send in 30 signed Valentines to share, no specific addressee. How unimaginably different life would be if love was spread around equally and lavishly to all. That's what I'm daydreaming about on this Valentine's Day.
