In general I'm not a big fan of Valentine's Day. Even after I was married it never really warmed my heart. After all, aren't we supposed to show how much we love someone EVERY day of the year? It also doesn't help that the last few years, even though I'm married, I've been alone.
Don't people get married so they're NOT alone?
At least I knew going into my marriage this was the way it would be, and I don't hold it against the Marine. He's doing his job, defending our country--even those people who would rather spit in the face of our military than accept them as human beings.
I love my husband for that, and there's a reason why I'm not in the service. I'm not as understanding of society's flaws.
Good thing he loves me in spite of my flaws.
Today, while my husband is somewhere NOT with me, I will share my love with the Munchkin and the Niece, just like I do every day.
I hope whether you celebrate Valentine's Day or not, you're having an amazing day.
Kiss your loved ones, eat some chocolate, and remember that even if you're single--you're not alone.
What do you think about Valentine's Day? Important or contrived?
I'd love to hear from you.
