Valentines Day is a warm, fuzzy holiday despite attempts to commercialize it is we do all holidays. It’s a day when we are reminded how much we love the ladies in our lives and they are reciprocating. It’s something that should happen more day-by-day during the year.
I remember back in grade school when we went to school armed with a bag full of valentines for those in our class and of course for the teacher. I remember the warm feeling opening all of those that I got, the shy smiles from the girls and the self-conscious embarrassment of the boys. Watching my grandkids I don’t think the reactions are quite the same thing today.
I also gave Saundra a gift for Valentine’s Day and letting her pick out the specific one herself. But it isn’t the gift that is important. What’s important is the fact that I knew what would make her happy without being told, as I did Christmas, and on occasions before that. That’s the real gift, and making her happy is what makes me happy.
Happy Valentines Day all.
