Valentine's Day

I'm not the most mushy guy. I find that friends and family are generally enough to keep me motivated and moving in a forward/positive direction. Truth be told, I haven't made a big deal out of Valentine's Day in probably 15 years, and it looks like I'm not going to start this year either.

I would be lying if I said that being single didn't suck sometimes.
Generally,I don't have that empty feeling inside that a lot of people talk about.
Of course I also don't want to die alone--and I doubt I will.
I have a family and friends that are basically family who will make sure of that!
I am blessed beyond words in that area.

The only thing that does hit home on a day like this is... occasionally I want to spoil someone.

I guess that's why I have a dog.

I am sure Ginger loves you for it. I have never made a big deal out of it anyways like most Christian holidays its commercialized and really don't have a lot of meaning anymore.People have forgotten about the St. Valentine Day Massacre and history behind it is pretty much obscured. If it makes you feel any better I have never gotten flowers or chocolates or anything on Valentines either. It's not one of my favorites either. So I can relate. *hugs*---Jonathan
