I really not that thrilled with Valentine's Day. People should show that they care for each other throughout the year just not on one particular day. My family keeps it pretty low key. We usually make each other some cookies or other treat. My dad gets my mom flowers. My mom makes them something nice for dinner.

Everyone's thoughts on Valentine's Day almost had me feeling guilty since we did make kind of a big deal of it this year. But then I got to thinking. I was alone for over 20 years. Not so much as a single date. Now I have a very romantic husband, who is the first man to ever buy me flowers, and who really gets into Valentine's Day, so I definitely do feel good about it. Now, if he only paid attention to me on Valentine's Day, of course Valentine's Day wouldn't mean anything, no matter how many flowers he got me, or candy, or taking me out to dinner. James does sweet wonderful things for me all the time though, so I can only feel happy that he did so much for me today (I got him a big card and a box of chocolates). In fact, not only did he give me flowers, balloons, candy, a Bless this Home plaque, and take me out to dinner, but he bought flowers and candy for both of our daughters and my sister, and candy for our grandkids. I feel very blessed to have James, and I know that he would do the same any day of the year--not just for Valentine's Day.

Like I said, we go out to dinner and our fun is doing for the ones we love, the kids and my mom..So I'd say were pretty lucky with nothing to feel guilty about..

If you're feeling guilty, Barbara, than you shouldn't have married such a great guy!

Cool

I am so Lucky to have Barbara, She is a Queen, So I can't be anything other than a Knight .
My Mother's favorite thing was when we would go to the woods and get wild flowers for her. It's not about the Money and Never should be. True Love is not being made to do something, Its about doing something not expected from the Heart. I wish all of you the very most out of Life. And Please believe me when, I say we Really do Love all of you. Never think you are not Loved because You really are. My Love Goes Out to you all. Love really comes from the Heart and given from the Heart not from the 5 and Dime store or any Mart or Flower Shop. It shouldn't cost a penny but at the same time it should be Priceless. May you all Feel the Love I have for you, For you are My Family. Love James
I found my Treasure with Barbara our Familys and here on DC with all our Friends

I know what you mean James. It's just nice to receive something on that one day, when you don't have the kind of husband that Barbara does and get to see that love everyday.

I did actually get something. DH bought me a candle that is in a nice wine glass with a silk rose attached by a white ribbon and a tiny red heart in the center of the bow.
