365 days

By Magnolia Decker

“Love is not a big enough word.” A quote from one of my favorite movies, Planes, Trains, and Automobiles, this captures the idea that love can be for everyone and can be shown every day to let the important individuals in our lives know they are appreciated. Del Griffith, played by John Candy, teaches us about love found in an unlikely friendship, and about the undying love found in loss. Del Griffith shows us that love doesn’t go away when the person dies, it just changes into something more manageable: the word love could not accurately convey all the emotions felt. What if we as Americans, educators, relatives, and friends demonstrated our love in a way the word “love” could not match up to it? I realize yesterday was Valentine’s Day, “the day of love”, but there shouldn’t just be one day in an entire year to show our appreciation for those who are important in our lives!

“Love is not a big enough word.” Sometimes, words in the English language are not able to express the overwhelming feeling of gratitude, care, appreciation, affection, passion or love one truly feels. Del Griffith pinpointed this in his quote about the enormity of love. In Japanese, ‘Wabi-Sabi’ is the art of finding and embracing beauty in the imperfections of nature. It is a pure and uncontrolled love for a flaw or a mistake or a natural form, even if it has rips and tears. In Denmark, one form of love doesn’t have to be romantic or emotional, it can simply be happy. “Hygge”, in Danish, could be translated as a warm fireplace, good food, and friends and family that share these moments together.

So here we are, with not just one, but 365 days to show the people in our lives they are cherished. Del Griffith is a character who may not have conformed in the way society wanted, or picked the career society accepted, but he demonstrated the power of loving himself and sharing his love through his smiles and joy with every person he encountered. He found friendship in an unlikely place and taught Neil Page, played by Steve Martin, about the value each individual possesses. Del Griffith teaches us that there are no boundaries or borders for the person you want to become; you have the power to be who you chose. Go and be a shower curtain ring salesman, like Del, and love every second of your job! Because if you do, people will love you back! You don’t only have to love your family or significant ot .....
