Oh, how I use to loathe thee.
I dreaded Valentine's Day all through high school, because I didn't have anybody to share it with. And it's a Hallmark holiday.
But now? *Sigh* It's difficult not to get caught up in the pinks and the reds and the chocolates...especially since I spent the afternoon with my cousin making his Valentine's box for school. Jay called while we were making it and said--more sincerely than I'd have imagined--that he missed making those.
So guess what? I'm going to pull together a couple of shoe boxes by Friday when he comes home for the weekend so that we can decorate them. Plus, I'm going to fill his with little candies and love notes.
But don't tell him!!
It may be a Hallmark holiday, and it may make shallow a deep commitment, but it is still an opportunity to demonstrate to this man that I care for him and think of him while he's away.
I'll take any opportunity like that I can get!
Just curious...what do people in the evangelical world think of Valentine's Day? I guess I've never really found out...
