Yet Another Valentine\'s Day

So Valentine’s Day has come and gone again. A couple days ago the shelves at your local CVS or Walgreens are emptying quickly by those last minute shoppers buying that sweet box of chocolates, teddy bears and cards for their loved ones. Valentine’s Day should be that special day every year that a person goes out of their way to really show their significant other just how much they love them and how much they are appreciated. It really doesn’t even have to be anything extravagant like diamond rings and the like. Most women are completely happy with a gift certificate to their favorite salon, or if you’re a stay at home mom maybe just some quiet time to yourself so you can do something you enjoy but just don’t have the time to do anymore. The perfect gift lies in what the person in your life really likes.

But in today’s world, I hear a lot of men not doing anything at all! What is that all about? When asked why that is, I get the typical answer of, “we have been married for X number of years, and we don’t do Valentine’s anymore.” That reply is just so hard to swallow. What has the world come to where romance is completely off their priority list? Even after marriage, it is so important to keep that romance alive in your relationships, to keep that fire burning.

Now I know some people are saying, “It’s just Valentine’s Day, just another day on the calendar”. But it is really a day set aside for those that are in love. As a hopeless romantic, I couldn’t imagine not celebrating Valentine’s Day with my loved one. It doesn’t even have to be about materialistic things to make someone happy. Maybe some time alone together doing something you wouldn’t normally do, or even going to do something together that you both absolutely love to do.

With the statistics of divorce on the rise, it is really scary to think that some folks just find it easier to put romance on the back burner. For me personally I got to work On Tuesday morning and found the cutest teddy bear with roses sitting on my desk this morning. It was nothing huge and out of this world but it made me smile. Appreciation should be shown to whom you care about throughout the year, but Valentine’s Day is a day that you can really get creative and have fun with it. Tell me what made you smile on Valentine's Day.
