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
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. 🌹
