A Happy Valentine's Day to YOU!

To everyone on the forum, that includes YOU!

From me!

And anybody else that wants to join in!

Valentine's Day...you didn't cause it, you can't control it, and you can't cure it.

I did some reading and the Catholic Church took the poor guy off the Saintly list. Apparently it's difficult to be sure he was worth the trouble.

But we are, each and every one of us.

So enjoy it in your way, for you, regardless of whether you sit alone without flowers or chocolate, regardless of whether you have a gift you didn't want, regardless of it all.

You're worth a Valentine, and since I can't cut out those cut boxey ones that I loved to put in the envelopes hanging off everybody's desk as a kid in gradeschool...here's my Valentine to you.
And yeah, back then I might have left off putting one in this or that kid's envelope, but not these days. I've matured a bit since then, one can only hope, so everybody gets one!

Happy Valentine's Day to you and I hope you did or got something special for yourself. I always get myself something special even though I do get a gift from my husband.

mmmm. I got both he and I a dark chocolate bar with raspberry filling. Reminded him to eat his because I might do something I regret in the middle of the night.

Happy Valentine's Day to you!

I am eating a giant dulce the leche piece of cake. Supposedly a celebration for my bday with a couple of friends yesterday.
My bday was 2 weeks ago

Thanks for the valentine. I never did anything special. But its a good idea to give myself something from now on!!

Thanks Brokenheartfool!
Happy Valentine's Day to you , too!

I think Valentine's Day in school was one of the first big lessons in rejection (the kid who had the biggest ego usually got the most valentines- how does that work? and does it still work?)

Thanks for thinking of all of us- it made me feel good

hugs,
chicory

Thanks so much for the kind words and thoughts. I will admit I was sad. I took a two hour nap and it was such a good sleep. I went to exercise and did not eat all the chocolate cake I had intended to. I took care of me. And despite the fact that I did not get even a card from my husband or my kids, I got a thank you from him-something that is a big step for him right now. Yes I deserve more but that is all he can give right now. Valentine's Day is only one day. And though I never made a big deal of it when you don't have it it is huge! I chose to instead focus on all the love I have been shown this past year from unlikely sources.
