Love Today Or Love Everyday?

The time of the year is coming up again – when the need to prove your love or affection to someone special in your life seems extremely important. Yes, Valentine’s Day is just around the corner of this week.

But the question is, why labour extra effort to prove your love on that day?  Why not every single day?

It’s a special day of love.


Dictionary.com defines special as…

  1. being a particular one
  2. distinguished or different from what is ordinary or usual
  3. extraordinary; exceptional
  4. being such in an exceptional degree; particularly valued

So, how is it special when the whole world is expressing their love on that day?

Don’t get me wrong, I personally love to celebrate Valentine’s Day but I just want to remind you, lovers… that love is more than roses, diamonds and candlelight dinners.

Some lovers wait for special occasions like Valentine’s Day, Birthday or Anniversary, to show their love.  But let me challenge you not to wait another day to show your love.

A childhood friend of mine, whose mother passed away from breast cancer last year, said, “Love like there’s no tomorrow…”

Jules mum passed away from a car accident last year.  And for the past five years before her mum’s death, Jules, who was studying and working in Kuala Lumpur, only came home to visit three times a year – Chinese New Year, mum’s birthday and Christmas.

She said, “If I could turn back time, I wouldn’t wait for occasions to show my love to her.  I’ll make sure she knows I love her every day.”

That year, Jules prepared her mum’s 50th golden birthday bash – booked a lavish restaurant at a 5-star hotel, invited relatives all over the country and planned to surprise her mum with the news that she would be relocated to Penang.

Four days before the Birthday Party, her mum met with an accident and passed away on the way to the hospital.  After the accident, Jules never relocate to Penang.

“There’s nothing to come back to,” she would say. “My career is here, my life is here.”

Although Jules may seem strong outwardly, I see through her… a woman who is hell bent on carrying regrets.  She would reminisce and imagine what the birthday party would have been like.

While this story is about love for parents, remember that occasions and special days will come, but the person you love may not be able to wait for that day.

Just as important as whispering I love you’s every day, action speaks a thousand words.  It’s three days to Valentine’s Day, and if you haven’t already done so, I encourage you to show your love to your loved ones today.  Because when you love someone, you love them every single day… not just on special occasions.

  1. i think the biggest mistake that a couple do on valentines day is to ‘celebrate’ the special day but then going back to normal day the next day.Yes love should be celebrate everyday and thats why you need to take the momentum from Valentine’s day and keep it going for months to come!

  2. Love and romance became things people cud enjoy solely for their recreational value.:)Commitment is the thing of the past.(sigh!)
    Why the big fuss of this v-day?It started from legend that is blown out of proportion.What is love??(by today value)hmmm..guess need to learn the true definition of love. “Love does not delight in evil, but rejoices with the truth.It always protecs,always trust, alway hopes,always persevere.Love never fails.(1 Corinthian 13:6-8)-maybe this is LOVE.:D

    Happy Bday to you.

    • Praise the Lord, Cory… by the measures that He loves us, that we may love the same. When we truly understand the real meaning of love, we’ll then be able to love every single day.

      You are right, it started from legend… and in ths contemporary world, human are taking advantage on everything to make money. While love used to be affection, passion and care… many people wrongly equate love with material gifts.

      Freely, freely we love… and freely, freely we are loved.

  3. I totally agree with you Jamie… Don’t wait until special ocassion to show love to your partner… Let them know they are special to you everyday… let them know that they are everything for you every single second… we never know what will happen tomorrow… but we know we can show them our love right now.. this moment..Just a kiss on forehead or cheek and “I Love you” can make each other’s day the most romantic day and you don’t need diamonds or jewelry to create the romantic atmosphere… love each other the fullest.. everyday is Valentine’s Day for lovers no matter if you are married,engaged,boyfriend,girlfriend…Love everyday and live your life without any regret.. God bless :)

    • JC, men think diamonds and jewelry and other material gifts make women happy… but little do they know that women get head over heels with just a simple phone call, a cute SMS, a sweet kiss, a warm hug, a loving time together… something MORE PRECIOUS that money cannot buy.

      If only he knows that…
