When you think about it, is there really anything wrong with having one day a year that forces you remember the love you have for others? Do you have to spend money to show someone you love them? Does love only mean loving a partner? Of course not. Everyone has someone they love, whether it is a significant other, your friends or your family. Take Valentine's Day as an opportunity to think about the love you have for the people in your life. Show them you care and tell them what they mean to you.
Yesterday, our 5 year old Nephew Gavin came home with a booklet of "People I Love". My Brother-In-Law shared with me that one of things that Gavin loves is Our house, where his Uncle Callum and Rascal (my dog lives). Of course, I am missing from that little description, but it turned my heart to mush knowing that we (or at least my Husband and dog) make enough of a difference in his life for him to mention us (them).
Unfortunately I only got as far as making the quilt top and haven't had time to quilt it. I have so many ideas about how I want to quilt it, and it will most likely take me until next Valentine's day to complete it!
So I urge you not to write this year's Valentine's Day off as a commercial holiday. Take time to think about those that you love and show them you care!
