I've never thought of Valentine's Day as just a day for romantic love, but as one for all different kinds of love. While at times, the idea of setting aside one day a year, designated to be the day when we profess our love to one another seems silly to me, it also makes my heart feel so full. How wonderful it is to love, and to be loved. For most of my life, I haven't had a romantic someone on Valentine's Day, and that's okay! I've found joy in the day by spending it with other people that I love and care about - family and friends.
This day is double special for me, because it is also my parents' wedding anniversary! Twenty-eight years today, and still as in love as they ever were. They're so sweet that it borders on causing diabetes.
So, if you're feeling down on this particular day, because you don't have a valentine, or because you've not yet found that special someone, don't discourage. Know this, reader, you are loved by more people than you think, I can guarantee you. And I can assure you, that one of the people that loves you is me. At this juncture, I know virtually everyone who reads this blog (all six of you - haha!), and I do in fact love you all. And even if I don't know you, chances are that I hold a special place in my heart for you, because you've deemed my blog something worth reading, so thank you for that!
I wish you the happiest Valentine's Day that I possibly can! I hope that you spend the day with people who make you feel as wonderful as you deserve to feel, and doing the things that you enjoy the most. My Valentine's Day plans consist of going to see A Good Day to Die Hard with Roomie. Yippie Ki-yay!
