What is love?

__

Love is for sure that feeling you get when you buy your kid five new stuffed animals for his or her birthday, and a week later they are all on the floor, dirty, with eye buttons ripped out.

Love is cleaning up your dog’s puke because you fed her apples when you should have stuck with Purina.

_That was mean_

Love is when your girl’s water breaks and you’re down to spend the next 72 hours by her side — and then some, because you know your life is about to change … and you know it’s for the bettter….and you know you’ll still realize your dreams, because baby you’re a winner.

That’s love, bro.

Valentine’s Day: Don’t Avoid It <3

St. Valentine’s Day approaches. As if you couldn’t already tell by all the red hearts and chocolate the stores have been pushing since like a day after Christmas.

Above, the namesake for the commercial holiday we use to remind ourselves to tell people we love them, while at the same time boosting the jewelery, candy and flower markets in these rough winter months. Saint Valentine was a priest who got caught marrying people, so the story goes. He was thrown into jail and tried to show the Roman emperor Claudius II the ways of the lord. In response he had his head chopped off on February 14th in 269. He’s considered a martyr, and according to Catholic.org

He is the Patron Saint of affianced couples, bee keepers, engaged couples, epilepsy, fainting, greetings, happy marriages, love, lovers, plague, travellers, young people. He is represented in pictures with birds and roses.

Plague?
