Sometimes people bemoan Valentine's Day
as a "Hallmark Holiday" ~
Or they say they don't need a special day set aside for expressing love,
that it should be done every day.
Yes, it should be done every day.
But I think it is lovely to think of Valentine's Day as icing on the cake,
a little insurance, a day to do that little extra thing,
add that extra sweetness ~
What a good reminder it is ~
And, to me, any reminder to do the out-of-ordinary is welcomed ~
So, then, to you, Dear Readers, I say:
Happy Valentine's Day.
Wishing you all much love, today,
All year long.
