Why I love Valentine’s Day

I know there are people out there who groan and grumble about how much they dislike Valentine’s Day.

I know that many people call it a hallmark holiday. Created solely to sell cards and candy and flowers.  It is not a “true” holiday.

I hear people call it SAD (Single Awareness Day).  And that all the lovey dovey stuff makes people want to vomit.

But I adore Valentine’s Day.

To me, it is a day to remember to let those we love, know we love them.  It is a reminder to say “I love you” to friends and family and partners.  It is not only for people who are coupled up.  There are so many people in my life who I love who do not fall into the category of significant other.  But it doesn’t mean I love them any less, I just love them differently.

We get so wrapped up in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, that we don’t always stop to say how much we care.  And often we forget until we receive a rude awakening and sometimes we are reminded too late.

So on Valentine’s Day tell everyone you love the you LOVE THEM!

Here are some of the people I love:
