I Love You.
I've already posted on reflections of Valentine's Day Past. Today is just a day. It's Valentine's Day. But hubby works, and we haven't worked out the kid situation yet so we can go on our date. Still working on it, but until we go, we won't really feel like it's V-Day. So it's just a day. The kiddos got on the bus with their bags of valentines with candies stapled to them, and they're having little celebrations at school, but that's about it. Pretty sad.
I love my siblings and their spouses. And my hubby's siblings, cousins, and spouses. They are like a built-in network of very close friends, and together we are like a club. A club of people who have so much in common, but are so different from one another. And we all hang out comfortably, with lots of laughter and noise. Being with any of them is one of my favorite things to do.
I love my extended family, particularly my Minnetonka bunch. You know who you are. You guys are part of us, and we're not whole without you. You bring me so much love and laughter, and I feel blessed that we have remained close generation after generation.
I love all you readers. I love even the idea of you, that you are out there, caring enough to take the time out of your day to read my random ramblings. Caring enough to occasionally send me a note telling me you're reading or that you are thinking about me, and supporting me when I need it. You're all like an invisible hug to me, and I have grown to appreciate that feeling more and more all the time. I love having this outlet, and knowing that I am not alone. Thank you!
And Happy Valentine's Day. Now go say "I LOVE YOU" to someone. And not just your pet.
