This Day of Love

Ahhh…Valentine’s Day.

My least favorite of all holidays.

And yes, my reasons for dislike stem from being burned…all the way back in the 5th grade.

But that is a story for another day…

And no, I do not still hold a grudge 20 some years later! Valentine’s Day has just never worked out for me.

But I do enjoy showering those I love with extra kisses, hugs and small gifts on this day, and I most likely do it because of those past reasons. I love to give them something special and try to make the day be what I always wanted it to be. But I try to show them how much I love and appreciate them every day, not just on this designated day for love.

But anyway, in addition to my sweet family, I love all my readers so very much, and I appreciate you all too!! And if you were all here in person I would give you each an extra big hug, some chocolates and a cute Valentine’s card (probably Hello Kitty or Star Wars because that’s what rules in our house!).

But since you all unfortunately are not here with me, this is the best I can do…

Happy Valentine’s Day!!


I hope that your day is filled with love and is everything you desire it to be. And if you are separated by miles from your loved one, I pray for their safety and speedy return. Love certainly can stretch across the miles…

And to my love, who does his best every day, not just on Valentine’s Day, to show me his love and make me feel special. Thank you for loving me, despite all my crazy neurotic-ness. I’m so happy to have you in my arms again.

I have eyes only for you…
