On the heels of my last somewhat anti-Valentines Day post, I turn on the TV and see this:
And it made me go, “Awwww.” I guess I like the idea of Valentines Day being about more than “I love you” but being about an “us.” I think it really is a celebration of what makes things work between two people. The laughter, the shared interests, the hand-holding, the leaning-my-head-on-your-shoulder, the cuddles, the telling of secrets, fears, hopes and dreams. I guess I do like the “us” part of Valentines.
Now…if I’m okay with the “us”…I gotta find out what I’m not okay with about the “you” and “me” components.
But that’s for another time.
