If you've read this far you're probably wondering why I don't celebrate this mass hysteria day of red hearts, roses and chocolate. I'm guessing you've come to the conclusion that I'm bitter, alone, have been hurt deeply or don't have a romantic bone in my body. I assure you, none of these assumptions are correct. I enjoy romance every bit as much as anyone else. I relish the thought of romantic getaways with the man I love, scented rose petals, candles, frilly red lingerie, love themed cards and all the rest of it. I'm not bitter about love and I'm with someone I love with all my heart. I just believe that if you love someone, your expressions of that love should happen all the time, throughout the entire year, when the thought comes to you.
So I will smile and bite my tongue and let my friends enjoy their special day... and who knows, we may do something romantic that day also if we're in the mood to, but I won't force or schedule it. Hallmark doesn't run my life... I do!
