It has been a minute since I wrote in this section so…here we go! I wanted to talk briefly on one of the most widely celebrated days of the year…Valentine’s Day. I was shocked when a business partner of mine recently stated that the money spent on the love filled day was over $161 million in the West Coast, $141 million in the North East and $116 in the Southern states.
I am happy to hear that so many people had a “Valentine” for the day, however let’s not forget it is just a day. I know some of yall might be mad at that last comment, but it is true. Don’t get me wrong, there is absolutely nothing wrong with showing a person how much you care by spending money. One of the problems that comes in is when you wait all year round for one day to show your appreciation.
The other problem is when you don’t have the resources to go “all out” and you spend all your money on one day, to wake up broke the next. If you are in relationship, be honest with yourself and the person you are with. There is nothing wrong with staying at home and keeping things low key.
However, if you have the funds, do you. Just remember there are still 364 days in the year and a little throughout helps to go a long way. I’m so glad that Jesus doesn’t need a day to show us His love that is unconditional and passeth all understanding (Philippians 4:7). Best of all, His love is free. I hope everyone had a Happy Valentine’s Day! 🙂
