In honor of our love i will give you dead things

 As i watch my Facebook feed fill up with valentines ” look what my sweetie did” followed by pictures of floral arrangements  i feel a bit of dismay. I have always said flowers are a waste of money, but when i get them i squee like a vapid girl.  Hmmm history aside valentines is now a day to remember the people you love, and tell them you care.  It feels strange to me that we need this holiday, and to be honest i normally do not participate. I love the people i love everyday, i try to tell them often and with true feeling. Please accept this beheaded plant as a token of my love for the year seems a bit hallow. Please let me be there when you are sick, sad, lonely, have a problem, let me be there for you when you need me.  Love is not i remembered to make reservations, love is i killed that spider for you because i know they scare you. So please celebrate how ever you choose, enjoy your day spread love.  Tomorrow when you wake up do it again celebrate your days all of them, show your love always. Because the societal construct fueling the ” valentines machine” maybe a flawed thing, but love….. Love is everything.

  1. I hear you! We don’t do anything really. Honestly, i would rather he not spend any money. Valentine’s day is just another day, to us. To me, true love is when he does the cat box and dishes😊.
