Lover or Hater?

Valentine’s Day: Love or Hate?

I love it. I know it’s just another way for stores to make money. I know it’s hard when you don’t have a significant other to share it with. I know it’s for the mushy.


It doesn’t have to be depressing. It can be a good day to show every person you love in your life, just how glad you are to have them. Every friend, child, co-worker, lover, man on the street who needs a smile … can feel the good effects of a little love in the air.

Plus, it’s just another excuse to eat chocolate. What could be wrong with that?

Love, cont.

I’m having a hard time saying anything that doesn’t sound trite or meaningless or foolish right now. My mother passed away two days after Christmas and my world has come to a complete stop. There are no words, no amount of tears, no reliving memories…nothing that takes away the pain. I know with time, the heavy sorrow will lift somewhat, but I also know I’ll never be the same again. 

It makes it difficult to do the everyday things. Life just continues on and we’re expected to go on like nothing is different. I know eventually I will have to snap out of it to an extent and be a vibrant human being again, but not yet. It’s just not gonna happen yet.

Prayers needed. All loving thoughts desperately needed. And also…love. Love everyone in your world. Love hard. Tell the people you love how much you value them, how much you need them in your life. You just never know how much time you have on this earth.
