When love is not madness, it is not love

Valentine’s Day – I was wondering how it was initiated and as the time went ahead how this event became a festival 🙂

“Truly loving another means letting go of all expectations. It means full acceptance, even celebration of another’s personhood.”

Yesterday I was shopping in the evening and I saw this guy who was with his maintenance jacket on top which showed he was working somewhere and just stepped in to the shop and bought hyacinths with a small heart inserted in the pot and yes a tag with ‘Happy Valentine’s Day’.

He paid for these flowers and while doing so he asked the helper guy in the shop did you see a girl with short hair just walking out of the store? She just bought lemonade and the helper guy ran outside to look for and by then this guy took the flower and he forgot the card on the cashier’s table. Suddenly, the cashier said- Sir, you forgot the card that you bought and he said oh!!! Yeah! He was much engrossed in finding his valentine… ! He took the card from the Cahier’s hand and went out. His eyes were searching for her all the way. The boy who went in search of the girl came back and told to the cashier I don’t think so I have seen her…!

“Loving is not just looking at each other, it’s looking in the same direction.” ~Antoine de Saint-Exupéry

I finished paying to the cashier and got into my car and I started my car and lit the headlights on and what I see is…the guy was on his knee on the road in front of my car proposing the short hair girl who was holding lemonade still in her hand 🙂 .

The moment was so special that unknowingly I smiled and the guy looked at me and winked and all I could do was – ‘ThumbsUp’, as if carrying on I will only go when she accepts it.

“Gravitation is not responsible for people falling in love.” ~Albert Einstein

The girl was blushing and all red and when she saw me still waiting she ran into the guy’s arms and all I could do was wish good luck and say good bye!!!

Whole night I was thinking ….how sweet and innocent was that love and gesture. No wonder when one falls in love they do crazy things 😉

I think if we are human we should do crazy things no matter what time and day is that.

“Love is a symbol of eternity. It wipes out all sense of time, destroying all memory of a beginning and all fear of an end. “ ~Author Unknown

We choose a day to wish everyone Valentine’s day and I wish that we could make this everyday …how beautiful it would be that people will be giving roses to their valentine and if anyone is angry they can give any such rose that will express their anger 🙂 yet this world would be a better place to live – a place with full of love and fragrance

“Without love, what are we worth? Eighty-nine cents! Eighty-nine cents worth of chemicals walking around lonely.” ~M*A*S*H, Hawkeye

How on earth are you ever going to explain in terms of chemistry and physics so important a biological phenomenon as first love?

It was love which brought them together and yet he has this habit of asking ~ ‘Do you love me’? and each time she looks at him from the corner of her eyes and blushes away!

I guess, sometimes these Valentine’s Day are much useful at such occasions though she loves him immensely but somehow she is shy, but then I guess the love is always expressed in gestures and one should make out that isn’t it ? 🙂

“The Grand essentials of happiness are: something to do, something to love, and something to hope for.” ~ Allan K Chalmers

Yet the guy always complains to her then when she heard from her kid ~ ‘Do you love me’? And she got so mad that how a mother can not love her kid? Which mother in the world will say she doesn’t love her kid and so she started questioning back to the kid that’s when the kid said innocently – ‘I find great happiness when I hear that from your mouth that you love me’! Only a drop of tear came out of her eyes!

“I am like a falling star who has finally found her place next to another in a lovely constellation, where we will sparkle in the heavens forever.” ~ Amy Tan

Was it the tear of sadness or the love? A mother can only love isn’t it?
The mother took her kid in her arms and hugged her saying ‘I love you and I will always love you since you are my life, without you our world is nothing’.

The kid could feel the love of her mother. That day she decided she will express her love to her husband as, a small kid has taught her how it is necessary to express the love verbally even though we all know love exists in our world!

“If you have love in your life it can make up for a great many things you lack. If you don’t have it, no matter what else there is, it’s not enough.” ~ Ann Landers

Evening when he came, first thing she could do was run to him and hug him and with all her tears in eyes yet holding tight but not really saying a word. He felt her emotion and the feeling in the grip of her hug, he couldn’t figure out what really happened and so he started asking questions – what happened? Are you alright? Tell me – and she said-

‘Dear, I love you and I want to tell you this today and always that without you I am incomplete’ 🙂

“To the world you may be one person,
but to one person you may be the world” ~ Bill Wilson

He just couldn’t let her talk after that! Love has real power isn’t it?

Happy Valentine’s Day to All my near and dear ones! Don’t forget to express 😉 even if you can’t give a gift 😀

“A bell is not a bell
until someone rings it,
a song is not a song
until someone sings it.

Love wasn’t put
in the heart to stay,
for love isn’t love
’til you give it away.” ~ Chanh Kha
