Valentine's Day

So before I give myself a smack over the head for wallowing in my self-pity of not having a guy who likes me that way, let's talk about the holiday!  Usually, my dad takes both my mom and me out for dinner; but this year, we're waiting until tomorrow, and my mom is doing the treating because she's getting her first paycheck from her new job.  I made my parents some nice cards they'll get tonight, though, and I know my mom has something for both my dad and me, and my dad has chocolates for my mom (she found out about those, though, because he left the receipt out on their dresser *rolls eyes*).  Now back to being alone on Valentine's Day.  It's why the stuff we studied in the Bible last night at small group has really helped and had such great timing.  It talked about how we shouldn't depend on guys (or girls, if you're a guy) for happiness.  Instead, we should depend on God.  So, I'm just going to remember that each Valentine's Day that I'm alone.  And maybe it'll help me watch my favorite romantic movies without feeling depressed.  Happy Valentine's Day, y'all! :) Because, it's not just a celebration of romantic love; it's a celebration of friendship love, too.  And the vast majority of you readers and commenters deserve some thanks for your kindness. :)

  2. Good for you! God is always the best person to rely on! My dad isn't here today (for the third year in a row, he's gone on Valentine's day!) so my Mom is depressed without her valentine! We're going out shopping tonight as a family! Well, ALMOST a whole family! :)

  4. Okay, well, he didn't ask me out, but he did agree more with me than with his good friend that was there, so that makes me feel better, LOL.

  5. YOU GOT IT! Happy Valentines Day! :D

    I used to feel so depressed and lonely too but then not anymore. I thought if a guy liked me, let him ask me out. Besides, we don't have to be paired up. That's what I thought. So don't feel bad, you are loved by God and your family and they too are your valentine.

    **hugs
