With Valentine’s just passing, I wanted to share a different view..
I remember HS years filled with “secret admirers” and vases of roses, delivered carnations, love notes and surprise boxes of chocolate – and I giggle when I think about Valentine’s. I was so naive and had no idea how the flowers or notes mysteriously appeared at my desk or in my locker. (Seriously!?!)
This week I was with my BGC dancers and I wished them a happy Valentine’s, followed by passing out hugs. I was surprised at what I heard. Junior High and High School girls were saying they HATED Valentine’s Day. I believe alot of people feel this way, because they are alone. (I hate the “forever alone” & “single awareness day” references). But I look at Valentine’s differently. I want to share with you what I told my girls.
