But, Valentine's Day is NOT just for lovers! Love comes in many forms. Some of us have partners, spouses or others whom we love in a romantic way. But, we also love our children, our parents, grandparents, friends and other people who have had a strong influence in our lives. Valentine's Day gives us the opportunity to tell them that we also love and appreciate them.
There is no doubt that Valentine's Day has been over commercialized in Canada and the United Sates, but it still remains a wonderful day when we can express love and appreciation to ALL the important people in our lives, including our children, our family and our friends.
How about all the friends who have been there for us in good and bad times,and who have helped us get through some of the most difficult times of our lives? Don't they deserve a little expression of the love and gratitude we feel towards them? Of course they do.
What do YOU think? Is Valentine's Day just for lovers?? What do you do in YOUR original country, or culture?
Let me know what you think. I value your comments.
