6 Days to Valentine's Day

Hooey! My little Heart Ticker indicates that there are 6 days left til it's Valentine's Day. And you know what that means. The stores will be jammed with frantic people trying to buy things to impress their sweeties. Diets will go by the wayside to make room for chocolate laden boxes. Flower shops will be inundated with orders for, what else, roses! Jewellery stores will have line-ups that might exceed those of Christmas (well, maybe not, but close!).

Now, I don't know what this means to you. Maybe you make a big deal out of it, maybe not. Maybe the day just fizzes into obscurity. For My Sweetie and I, even after almost 25 years of being married, we try to do something special for that day. We might go to a nice restaurant for dinner (so far this year we haven't a clue as to what to do or where to go, nor have we made reservations anywhere). This year, I am going to make a card for My Sweetie (something which I have not started yet, though the ideas are engraving themselves in my brain). We usually do some little trinket giftie.

Above all, we always make sure that we let each other know how truly special we are to each other. Not to say that Valentine's Day is the only day that we should be doing this. No no! But in this busy world that we live in, it gives us reason to pause for a bit, and take the time to acknowledge, express, and be thankful for that special person.

So, get busy.....only 6 days left!

Valentine's Day has never been a big deal for me, but I'm not the most romantic girl in the world.
