I've always liked and enjoyed Valentine's Day, no matter whether I was single, madly in love, broken-hearted or whatever on that date. That's because I don't regard Valentine's Day as a holiday which celebrates only romantic love. That's MUCH too narrow a focus! To me, Valentine's Day celebrates love of family, friends and pets -- all the important ones in our life!
So even if there is no romantic dinner, roses or chocolates on any given February 14th, there is always an exchange of valentines with my Mom, sister and special friends. And of course, Her Royal Highness the cat sends valentines too. (I act merely as her secretary.)
And if there does happen to be romance that particular year also -- well, it's just the pink icing on the heart-shaped cake! But the absence of romantic love is no reason for anyone to think less of themselves on February 14th (or any other day). Nor is the presence of romantic love a reason for anyone to feel superior or more deserving.
Happy Valentine's Day, EVERYONE!
