Here’s one of the comments you allowed us to use. “My partner surprised me with this comment – What are we doing for Valentine’s day this year?” So that meant that he was already thinking about it, that’s good. As for me, I hadn’t given it a second thought…”
Valentine’s Day – it comes around every 14th February and how do we mark the day? An ancient Christian festival, we still celebrate Saint Valentine.
If you’re in a partnership, couples think about celebrating it as a special occasion – whether that means spoiling each other with a treat, a romantic meal…
“I haven’t had a boyfriend for a while, but this year I have, so who knows” – M
If you’re not currently part of a couple it would be good to hear what you usually do for Valentine’s.
But should we have to wait for one day a year to celebrate love? What about marking the occasion by expressing to those close to you how much they mean to you? This could also be about just expressing how special YOU are and giving yourself a treat for Valentine’s.
We love this poem by Tula Benson:
Love is about gentle hands to the rescue when trouble closes in
Love is a gentle voice that we hear over the shouting of harsh words
Love, the gentle look which says you are wrong, have done wrong ,and I love you the same as though you were right. The same as when you have done what is right.
Love is like this…
