On Valentine’s Day, and Every Day

Does he make your world bigger?

It was a question she’d asked her daughter, a passing comment in the midst of a story about something else entirely. And yet it has stuck with me since, this thought, this most-perfect and profound point of view.

Does he make your world bigger? she’d asked.


I believe it to be the perfect test of love, true love, the kind of love that nurtures you both as (inevitably) a romance transitions from sparkly and new to real life and daily. I believe the greatest proof of love is expanding each other’s horizons, supporting each other’s dreams, believing in the joy that extends out there, tomorrow.

I believe it is the ideal when-you-get-right-down-to-it test, whether you are 16 years old, or 28, or 54, or 90.

Does he make your world bigger?


How thankful I am that in my life, the answer is an unequivocal



my love


Wishing you love that expands your world, on this Valentine’s Day and every day.  XXOO
