All you need is love, love, love...

valentines day
via

I was reflecting this week on what love truly means. The word itself gets thrown around all too loosely (and I'm as guilty as anyone else...I love that J. Crew cardi and love watching the Bachelor). So anyways, here are my random thoughts on love intertwined with cheesy pieces of my own love story (don't say that I didn't warn you).

1. My dear lil' sister's facebook status yesterday: "To some people, it's Valentine's day. To me, it's Thursday." I spent a lot of Valentine's that were just another Thursday (or whatever day). And a couple with another person, but who I knew wasn't the person. Then one day when I was least expecting it, I met my person.

2. Our wedding was the most beautiful day of my life. I can't deny that I had some pre-wedding jitters (and months of stressing over wedding preparations that didn't really matter in the end), but the moment when I saw his face waiting for me at the altar, I felt a completely overwhelming sense of peace and joy.

3. Since Stephen and I got married in August, one of the deepest ways that I've experienced his love for me is his kindness, patience and gentleness towards me when I really do least deserve it...there have been too many instances where I've taken out my lack of sleep, frustration towards med school, a tough day, or just regular old PMS on him. And he loves me anyways.

4. I love the picture below (there I go using "love" again). When I was on my OB rotation, the moment a baby was born it was like the world stopped. I felt immensely privileged to be a part of each delivery, and I don't think that there is anything else like the love a parent has for their child.

5.When I think of a person that epitomized love in every part of their being, I think of her.

6. And we would never have known what love was without the Person who encompassed love itself.

  4. um, it was actually "Some people call it Valentine's Day; I call it Thursday." Slightly funnier and much less pathetic than the way you put it hahaha
