Soooo....anyway, here I am.
Valentine's Day is tomorrow. I wonder about Valentine's Day. Is it the only time of the year when it's acceptable for a man and woman to prclaim their love? To send cards? No. Anniversaries have the same thing. So what makes Valentine's Day so different?
I think it's because there's the mystery of the Secret Admirer. The card and flowers from "Your Secret Admirer". I mean, how exciting, or scary, depending on your POV
It's titillating. Admit it. I'd be stoked if I got flowers and a card from a secret admirer. The Only thing I get at the moment is a bill! Not Bill, but bill. *sigh*
LOL. But you know what touches me the most? When I see an elderly couple walking hand in hand down the street or out for a walk. Holding hands, showing that their love has endured the years and what life has thrown at them. For a split second I can see the young couple, so freshly in love, hope for the future, a little scared maybe...and then the years have passed and they're still together, having endured and come through it. And still holding hands, as much in love today as they were years ago.
Now that's romantic.
