Happy hearts and flowers day

valentine

This week I received a lovely thoughtful Valentine card from a dear friend in Australia.  She said, she knew Valentine’s day was usually for lovers, but she really wanted me to know how special I was to her, and that she carried a love for our friendship in her heart, always.  I was very touched, we met years ago in a virtual world, but soon found many interests that we had in common.  Our friendship has stayed true of the years, we not longer talk as often, or write as often, our paths went in different directions.  But, the feeling of love and friendship remained.  At anytime, we can pick up and visit, like yesterday, time has not been a factor.

Love is a precious gift.  True friendships will weather any storm.  Cliches you say, they are words of wisdom proven to have endured through the years.  Tomorrow, the 14th was set aside not just for lovers, but for letting those around you know, that they were appreciated and a fun caring way of saying, hey you are special, be my Valentine.  Whether that was a teacher, a co-worker, fellow student, it was fun preparing the Valentines, and sending or passing them out.

Somewhere along the way, the words I love you, seem to have taken on a very different meaning.  AND often the love it espouses  doesn’t last very long.  Love is beautiful, and when we truly love, we care 100% for those we love, and their happiness.  Should paths go in different ways, shouldn’t diminish that love, however…. I do see around me…. that when love no longer shines,  here is another cliche for you.. when the bloom is off the rose…..it seems that all that is left are the thorns.

With love from me to you… young, old, short, tall, I love you all.

  1. Nicely said. Happy Valentine’s Day.

  2. I have friends like that… I wish I saw them more often… but when we do get together it’s like we just saw each other yesterday.

  3. Lovely post, I think that sometimes we forget that perhaps there are those with no husbands or partners to make a fuss of them on Valentine’s. Isn’t friendship such a wonderful thing to celebrate too.

  4. Thank you for visiting my blog and liking my post.

  5. So glad you had/have such a good friend. It’s true that if we even have a few friends, we are very lucky!
