Valentine's Day is a day of love, right? But love changes its meaning for many over time.
Maybe growing up, this is what love meant - finding your soulmate, getting married.
Is this how love should look? Flowers every day or on special occasions?
Love may mean a special dinner or favorite food.
For me, love has always been family, regardless of being "in love" with someone or not. My family has always been there, even when I haven't necessarily wanted them. (chuckle)
For as long as I can remember, love has meant cats. One, two, more, didn't matter. Cats were there no matter what I was going through - employment issues, money problems, break-ups with not so nice people, everything. I didn't know if I would ever find a person who would show me love like cats do. Until I met John.
For almost nine years, I have been married to a man that accepted me, my cats, and my love for cats, and is willing to do this (see the photo for evidence).
Coming home from work to lie on the floor to fish out someone's favorite toy, of which there was only one.
So while love may mean many different things to each person, over time love can change its meaning and its form. I am a blessed woman to have such an amazing and supportive family and husband and a passel of cats (ages 4.5 months to 13 years old) to form the clowder I am privileged to love every day. - April-Dawn
