Happy Valentine’s Day

valentine-gifts

February 14, is a major source of economic activity. Yes, of course I am referring to Valentine’s Day! Lovers take advantage of this day by expressing their affections with chocolates, flowers, special greetings and gifts. This is the perfect time to tell your partner what’s in your heart and perhaps, even profess your love for them.

Life is the flower for which love is the honey. – Victor Hugo

That special someone in your life may also arrange a romantic meal in a favorite restaurant or a romantic stay over in a hotel. Even a night at home with a mood-setting candle, a bottle of wine and interesting snacks while snuggling and watching a Valentine’s Day movie may suit your fancy.

To love and be loved is to the feel the sun from both sides. – David Viscott

To add to the splendor of Valentine’s Day and the images of shades of pink, chocolates, wine and red hearts is this magical baby boy toting a bow and arrow. Known as cupid, he flies around shooting arrows at people with the hope they fall in love.

Cupid, draw back your bow

And let your arrow go

Straight to my lover’s heart for me, for me

Cupid, please hear my cry

And let your arrow fly

Straight to my lover’s heart for me

– Lyrics from the song Cupid by Sam Cooke.

Whatever souls are made of, his and mine are the same. – Emily Bronte

the morning sunlight shared it’s gentle warmth

a slumbering rose garden awoke

velvety petals write poems

to heal hearts of the grieving

a sentence of relief

cast on the weary

between each ray

from the sun

the moon

hope

Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope. – Maya Angelou

How can anyone not get caught up in this day that plays with the hearts of mortals and hopefully causes them to fall in love.

Happy Valentine’s Day to you and yours. 🌹

  1. ❤ ❤ Happy Valentine's Day ❤ ❤ Eugenia & Renard.
    Eugenia this is a lovely wee psot.
    I love all 3 quotes but #2 stands out from the other 2. I met my 4th husband Paul McMenemy on Feb. 14th, 1985…it was love at first sight. He was a Quadriplegic & never thought anyone would ever notice him. I'd come out of a relationship that left me brusied & battered (both physically & emotionally) & thought I'd never find TRUE love….
    And there he was in front of me that day! And there I was in front of him that day!
    To love & be loved…it WAS like feeling the Sun on both sides……for both of us……
    I had 13 years with Paul & then he passed away at the age of 33 years old. I was 40 & had NO clue how I'd carry on….but with his Love still in my mind I did manage to carry on.
    Yesterday I kissed his photo & I felt the ❤ LOVE ❤ all over again…..
    Thank you for letting me share.
    Sincerely, Sherri-Ellen

    1. Oh, LadyMew! You have endured more than most. I’ve been widowed twice and can relate to the sorrow of losing loved ones. But, we carry on because that is what our lost loved ones would want us to do. I’m glad you enjoyed my post! Stay safe, warm and give BellaDharma a hug. 😘

      1. I too, have been widowed twice. 40 when Paul died. 47 when husband Kevin died & he was only 41. (Committed suicide). Somehow we DO carry on…we sure are made of tough stuff Eugenia!!!
        I gave BellaDharma 4 strokes from you; hugs are NOT allowed (she is semi-feral).
        We are warm & safe; hope you are too!
