So, unless you live under a rock, you know that yesterday was Valentine’s Day I loved seeing the pictures of what everyone got from their significant others on Facebook. I think it’s sweet how happy everyone gets and how a husband will go all out for his wife on this holiday. Then, today, I saw this picture on Facebook showing Destiny’s Child on the top with the words “Single Ladies Today” and a woman crying on the bottom with the words “Single Ladies Yesterday” which became the inspiration for this post.
Yesterday was the first Valentine’s Day in four years that I have been single. I didn’t cry one time. I didn’t even feel sad that I didn’t have anyone to share it with and here’s why…I believe that we should celebrate our love for our significant others EVERY DAY! I’m not saying that every day we should go spend hundreds of dollars (Take it from a former florist, you would be surprised how much is spent on flowers alone on Valentine’s Day) on our husbands, wives, boyfriends or girlfriends. We should celebrate with other gifts that cost little to nothing. Hugs, kisses, a favorite meal, a clean vehicle, or some time for an uninterrupted bubble bath or a nap (for you ladies who have children) with flowers thrown in every once in awhile. It’s nice to get all the stuff on this one day, but in a few days or maybe a week, the flowers will be in the trash, the balloons deflated and the candy eaten. Will you remember what you got for the rest of the year? I never do. But, I WILL brag on my significant other for weeks, if not months, if he washes and cleans out my truck. It’s the little things that mean so much more to me.
