for lovers. Or is it just 'love'? My father is often on my mind in February.
He was so good at having
small to give to each of us, to let us know just what we meant to him.
I remember so many holidays coming home to just a tiny stuffed bear, or
a heart of sweets and a card. It became expected and as far
as I remember
we were never disappointed.
I didn't realize
until much later in my life that not everyone considered the day to be
for expressing your love to everyone who you felt that deeply about. Most
'sweetheart' to single out and allow to bask in their attentions. Surely
we often have a special someone to whom our sentiments are focused, but
for those who do not, and even for those who do, I would offer
of my father, who let a little girl, a struggling teen, and even a young
mother know that she was part of his 'valentine' love sharing.
and I have grown up through the years pasting and
cutting and making a grand mess. It was much more work in the years when
I had four in school and we made 30+ a piece. Sometimes towards the end,
I know it became more a chore than an effort of
after all that those in our life do for us, sometimes it was important
to just set things aside and focus on those wonderful feelings of 'love'.
I guess it is still important.
and yours a most
holiday with all the tender feelings that humanity is famous for

The unsolicited 'who am I'... See if you agree.
You continually reach out to touch others with
your light, encouraging them to keep their own flame lit and shining brightly,

around them, your honesty is something all should strive for and learn
