    My big joy on Valentine’s Day, these days, is mailing the grandchildren Valentine’s Day cards. Kids love getting mail. However, I must offer my congratulations to all of you lucky souls out there who have found your soul mate . Enjoy your day together! 🙂

    We do not do a lot of celebrating on Valentine’s Day. We mostly stay home and make a nice meal.

    Hubby and I sometimes don’t even exchange Valentine’s Day gifts. Crazy, right? I don’t mind though, and I don’t think he does. Still and the same a little extra romance is nice sometimes. 🙂

      I know the story well. We get busy with the demands of running a household that some of these occasions carry less weight.
      Love is an every day affair so I get your decision. 🙂

    It’s not only good poetry that goes out from a broken heart but also good love songs–sad songs to be exact. Love can inspire a lot of things. It can be sadness and it can also be happiness.

    We don’t really make a huge deal of Valentine’s Day, but I do love the idea of having a day to celebrate one another and to show appreciation for the people you love. We get wrapped up in the day to day, and Valentine’s is a wonderful chance to remember the more important things in life 🙂

    Thank you for sharing this. I have been alone for about nine years now. I am with family but I have no one close and intimate. I really do miss this. I just found it so difficult to be in my last relationship because of drinking. He was a wonderful man but got drunk every night. Thank you for sharing this God Bless you all
