Tonight after a looong day, I had to stop at the store to pick up a few things before heading home. With Valentines Day coming up, and all the pink and red that vomited in the store, I was reminded that it was time to get Frankie a card. (It has continued to be a habit of mine to pick out the perfect cards for him on holidays and other random special days). As I was looking for just the right one, or three, a guy walked by and said....
“Trust me, It’s overrated.”
All I could think was....trust me...It is not.
Every day you get to spend with a loved one is special, but a day set apart to remind you, and treat the one person in your life just a little more special is not overrated in my book. Frankie and I treated everyday like it was special and often said “Every day is a day for love.”
Our last Valentine’s Day together was in 2008 in Hawaii. It fell on our Thursday night where we would shut out the world, get pizza and sorbet and catch up on all of our TV shows. We stayed in, homemade a heart shaped buffalo chicken pizza (it was so delicious), gave one another our cards, and enjoyed another day of love.
Not one second is overrated....not one. Not even when he is not here and I continue to buy him cards, breathe, live and feel his love.
So, have a beautiful Valentine's Day and treat everyone you love in your life a little more special. And then remember to do it more often! Every day is a day for love!
