Also known as Valentine’s Day!
Sorry about skipping yesterday’s TNL, but I had to go downtown to pay the property taxes, which took HOURS since there was some sort of spill on the highway, which meant I had to take backroads that were scary enough to send me into prayer, and then arrive to stand in line among the living and the dead (they had been there so long), and finally, painfully hand over a cheque to the smiling young clerk. By the time I made it home, it was too late to make dinner, much less write a post.
And there ends my justification.
Anyway, back to Valentine’s Day. Around here, I don’t really celebrate it for myself as much as I do for the kids and Hubby. It’s not that I am jaded on the holiday. It’s just that loving someone shouldn’t require a specific day. But that doesn’t mean I don’t try to make the day special in some way. So here is a list of things one should never forget to do for their loved ones.
#5– Carry their burden
Big or small, physical or emotional, it doesn’t matter as long as you make it your own, even for a short time.
#4– Wash their hair
Or give them a foot rub, or massage their shoulders. Anyone that watched Out of Africa knows what I’m talking about.
#3– Be their harbor
No matter what the trouble, be there to offer them safety. You are their shield.
No matter that it’s gossip or complaints, just listen to them. Usually that is all we want anyway.
#1– Tell them you love them
Sometimes we forget to do that. So don’t.
Anyway, I hope y’all enjoy today, be it in celebration of Valentine’s Day or because it’s Friday finally. I’m going with the latter 😉
