Valentines Day Cheer, a happy one to you!
Valentines Day. So did you receive a pile of cards on your door mat today. No? Well me neither and I have been with my husband for over 30 years.
I admit I would like one, likely he has it hidden at home. I will let you know.
I hope his one has arrived, I created one and I am waiting for it to be delivered! Disappointed that it didn’t come when they stated. Never mind.
Love is so important to us, self love is the most difficult to apply, as you no doubt think, I’m not worthy.
You are worthy in every way I can think imaginable. You deserve fun, laughter, happiness, support and love from others.
If we project love, we will receive it in abundance. So be happy, love someone or something!
If you look at yourself under a microscope, you may see that there is an unequal balance of giving and receiving love.
Either move on to others or address the situation, put it right.
Dont hang on to hope for love to appear, work at it, look for it and when you find it, cherish it.
You deserve the very best, right?
Anyway, this is extremely brief, but nonetheless important; I simply wanted to wish you a Happy Valentines Day!
History of Valentine
If you are interested in the history of Valentines:
The Catholic Church recognizes at least three different saints named Valentine or Valentinus, all of whom were martyred. One legend contends that Valentine was a priest who served during the third century in Rome. When Emperor Claudius II decided that single men made better soldiers than those with wives and families, he outlawed marriage for young men. Valentine, realizing the injustice of the decree, defied Claudius and continued to perform marriages for young lovers in secret. When Valentine’s actions were discovered, Claudius ordered that he be put to death.
Other stories suggest that Valentine may have been killed for attempting to help Christians escape harsh Roman prisons, where they were often beaten and tortured. According to one legend, an imprisoned Valentine actually sent the first “valentine” greeting himself after he fell in love with a young girl–possibly his jailor’s daughter–who visited him during his confinement. Before his death, it is alleged that he wrote her a letter signed “From your Valentine,” an expression that is still in use today. Although the truth behind the Valentine legends is murky, the stories all emphasize his appeal as a sympathetic, heroic and–most importantly–romantic figure. By the Middle Ages, perhaps thanks to this reputation, Valentine would become one of the most popular saints in England and France.
And there you have it, Valentines Day.
