THE VALUE OF A VALENTINE
Valentine's Day is a holiday where we express our love for one another. But, for many of us, it seems like just another day. We take Valentine's Day for granted and become so caught up in society's commercialized definition of it. We go all out and buy expensive flowers, candy, and showy cards for our mates. We hope that our gifts will flatter and satisfy one another, if only for just a day. Instead, let's seek to express love on a daily basis. Whether you are linked in love or friendship with others, this is a day to be celebrated with happiness, hugs, smiles and kisses. Every day, make a place in your heart for Valentine's Day. Here's a poem that speaks from the soul of one who truly cares about you.
On this sweet and lovely Valentine's Day
No matter what you relay
Whether it's a lavish gift or simple sentiment
Remember that whatever you present
Will be cherished in the receiver's heart
Drawing you ever so close, never to depart
For the strings of love shall never unwind
With the delicate passage of time
It becomes stronger and even more sublime
For the value of a valentine is one of a kind.
Sending love and friendship greetings to you on this Happy Valentine's Day!!
