I have this picture that hangs in my office (see above) of a baseball with lipstick on it. Just about every time my son Graham walks into my office and sees this picture he asks “Why did Mommy kiss that baseball?” My response is always, “Well, because she loves me.”
That is my response on most days. But most days aren’t Valentines Day. If anyone asks me today why, mommy kissed the baseball my response would be, “well because pitchers and catchers report to spring training today and it’s Valentines Day.” If you ask me, today is a very appropriate day for this to take place. Who doesn’t love baseball? Okay… don’t answer that.
On this Valentines Day, I realize love is a very broad term. In America we just don’t seem to grasp the full meaning of love because of set backs in the English language. I mean, I love my wife AND I love baseball? Not to mention my love for steak and sea food. This is why in the Greek language there are as many as five different terms for love.
On this day of love or dia de amor as I like to call it, if you are married or if you are single.
What/who do you love?
Please feel free to use it in every sense of the word.
