021414 For me, Valentine’s Day wasn’t ever really about romantic relationships. In my first family we celebrated our family. I got cards and candy for and from my brothers and my parents. I’m pretty sure it was my father’s favorite holiday. He loved to give funny cards and share candy and laughter. I remember my brother’s trying to outdo each other with the size and humorousness of their cards. I loved it, too!
Our cultural messages surrounding Valentine’s Day seem to be those of having a lover or a spouse. I guess I never got that memo, because I still prefer sharing the love with ALL of my loved ones, and I’m grateful for that.
Thanks, Dad! Happy Valentine’s Day!
