From http://www.SelfGrowth.com - 02/11/13 - "The Best Valentine's Gift":
 

What is the Best Valentine's Day Gift?

By  Dr. Charles D. Schmitz and Dr. Elizabeth A. Schmitz

It is said that some 200 million stems of roses will be sold in the USA on Valentine's Day 2011. Imagine that! That's a lot of expressions of love don't you think! We Americans love Valentine's Day. We relish the opportunity to express our love to the one we love, and we do it through multiple venues.

People propose marriage, get engaged, express love, and give lots of flowers to the one they love on Valentine's Day. What they are really saying is, "You are My Valentine and I love you!" And the truth is, Valentine's Day is romantic and sexual in its orientation for many. It is the ultimate "day of love!"

In so many ways, giving roses to the one you love is an expression of love for someone that really matters to you. Valentine's Day is the perfect time to express your love. But think about it; are there better and less expensive ways to tell someone you love that they are the center of your universe? We think so.

We subscribe to the old adage that the best things in life are free. Valentine's Day doesn't have to cost a dime of your hard-earned money during these trying economic times. Valentine's Day, in the end, is all about love. It is about serving breakfast in bed to the one you love. It is about giving the gift of time instead of lavish or expensive gifts.

Don't over-emphasize the importance of giving THINGS. In the end, the greatest Valentine's gift of all to the one you love is the gift of your time. Our research on six continents of the world and in 45 countries over these past three decades completely supports this notion.

Valentine's Day should be a time to reflect on and a time to share your love with the one you are in love with. When you truly love someone, you spend your "love energy" in the here and now. Valentine's Day sometimes does often conjure up memories of lost love! Forget about that! Spend your time immersing yourself in today's love. Spend your time being thankful for who you love today. Hindsight is always 20-20. Love is sometimes blind, but your heart will tell you the difference. Spend time with the one you love on this highly important day. You will not regret it.

So, who is the love of your life on this Valentine's Day? What do you plan to do to express your love to the one you love? Will it be an expensive affirmation of love? Or, will you give the gift of time to the one you love? The choice is yours.

We vote, however, for the gift of time. When you go to your grave, you cannot take material items with you. You can, however, take memories of love with you with your dying breath. Spending time with the one you love ensures your place in their heart. And you can take that kind of love with you!

Here's what we know. In our thousands of interviews, the most successful marriages and relationships repeatedly report this simple notion -- being with their spouse is the most important part of their day. Nothing about love can replace the intimacy of being alone with your lover. Do not have any illusions when it comes to love -- being with the one you love should be the nirvana of your day. If you don't feel this way, it is time to reflect on your relationship with the one you purport to love.

We are often asked this question--"Does love exist only if you acknowledge it in front of other people?" Our answer -- how ridiculous is this notion! Telling someone you love him or her should occur everywhere -- in public, in private, and all around the town. People in love acknowledge their love wherever and whenever. Where they do it doesn't matter.

Always remember, every day is a day of sunshine when you are with the one you love. Valentine's Day reminds us why our soul mate, our lover, and our best friend is the one we most want to spend our time with and to share our life with.

In the end, there is nothing more important in a loving relationship than the gift of time. Give the one you love this special gift today. You will not regret it. Make this your best Valentine's ever!

In love and marriage the simple things matter. Love well!

An Affair to Remember

Lyrics by Leo McCarey (03 Oct 1898 – 05 July 1969) and Harold Adamson (10 Dec 1906 – 17 Aug 1980), 1957

Music by Harry Warren (24 Dec 1893 – 22 Sept 1981)


Our love affair is a wondrous thing
That we'll rejoice in remembering
Our love was born with our first embrace
And a page was torn out of time and space

Our love affair, may it always be
A flame to burn through eternity
So take my hand with a fervent prayer
That we may live and we may share
A love affair to remember
