For me Valentine’s Day is not a day for lovers – it is the day I celebrate my love with others.
Before I had kids I regarded the day as one of romance and all the Hallmark stuff. When Nolan and Sam were old enough I would have them make Valentine cards or projects to give to their grandparents and godmothers. I like giving out stickers and candy to my patients at the office. In their younger ages my boys got cute cards with candy wishing them a fun day from mommy and daddy.
In the teenage years the cards get a little serious and I share with them how much I love them and wish them joy and happiness.
It made me smile when we went through Nolan’s belongings and we found he kept a few of those Valentine’s Day cards.
During this hard month of February this is one day I focus on love and I feel happy. The Beatles say it perfectly- “all you need is love.”
And you have it. Always . All the time.
I focus on the divine love that we all have. It unites us.
So Happy Valentine’s Day from me.
I love you.
