Valentine's Day

Valentine's Day will be here in a few days. You know, that day when florist run out of flowers, Hallmark depletes their card stock and there is a major shortage of chocolate. Many of us get so wrapped up in this day and for those that do not have a significant partner in our lives we tend become depressed or sad. Love is something that does not come easy or without much hard work. This is truly a soft and pink day. I have gotten to the point in life where the day itself is not what I hang my hat on when it comes to me and my boyfriend. It is how we respect and treat each other 365 days a year. There was a time in my life when this day as well as Sweetest Day was very meaningful and if there were no gifts of acknowledgment there was hell to pay. However, life has taught me quite a bit and there importance is not what it once was.

An expression of love is great any day of the year. Life is too short not to feel the warm touch and feeling that love brings on a continual basis. There is no better feeling than waking up each morning knowing that through all the tribulations that life places at your feet the person lying next to you loves you without conditions. Please begin to love yourself and all the rest will flow effortlessly for people will see the glow. With that glow you will attract many to you.
