I opened up an e-mail also and received another beautiful tag from Dianna...HUGS. Look familiar, Terry Ann? So many people have been sending me tags and graphics. I'm really touched and love you all because I'm so lost without my stuff.
I'm still thinking about my valentine heart that said get real and being cynical and I probably am cynical a bit toward Valentines Day. It's a day to express and show your love toward those you do love....not just that certain special someone who will shower you with jewels, roses, diamonds, etc. That's the commercialism that has taken over. Lisa Jo mentioned in her journal that she loved doing the parties and things when her kids were small. I agree. That was Valentines Day for me. The kids loved it. I did too.
My girls are 19 and 24 and still love to receive their little box of goodies that I send them. That is love to me and the meaning of Valentines Day. Joey loves getting his Dove chocolate and other candy and a card (with a little green in it this year which surprised him).
My BF left work early so no flowers for me. He had a doctor's appt. and has the crud now that I had. He apologized for not taking me out tonight since we're both off tomorrow. He had planned to make me a wonderful country style breakfast tomorrow and he can do breakfasts...yum. He was on his way to the store and had to turn around and go home. His sinus medication for his congestion caused his blood pressure to go up. LOL...he just called and felt bad and did want to go out but he is sick and call me paranoid but I don't want to get sick again. I told him if he feels better tomorrow, we can go out to eat. So, really, today is just another day. My ex would buy me things once in a while on Valentines Day only to be vicious the rest of the year so maybe that's why I felt it was a farce. Today was just another day in my life.
But I do want to wish all my dear friends in J-Land a HAPPY VALENTINES DAY! Hug your loved ones; make them feel special. Don't fret if Prince Charming isn't knocking down your door at this point in time. And congratulations to those who have successful marriages and have honored their spouses in their journals today. It takes much love, compromise, and hard work to remain married. I truly respect that even though I wasn't able to accomplish that. And to those whose relationships ended in bitterness, I pray for peace of mind, heart and soul.
I had intended on making tags for my kids but that isn't going to happen so here's the tag I made a while ago for Becky and Megan...Hugs to my girls....
And I was in the midst of making a little boy tag for Joey when my computer blew so I'm snagging this from Shelly for you Joe.......HUGS, Shelly!
Hugs to all my J-Land friends.....what a wonderful group of friends you are and it seems I keep adding new friends each day. So, I'll endwith sending my love to everyone...you are all so special to me and make my days so much sunnier.........
