Sunday February 14th ~

At the end of the day you can focus on what's 
tearing you apart, or what's holding you together...

 Valentine’s Day occurs every February 14. 
Across the United States and in other places around the 
world, candy, flowers and gifts are usually exchanged
 between loved ones, all in the name of St. Valentine.

It has never been a big deal to me.  As kids my mom would
 always buy us chocolate and give us cards.  This was the most 
special Valentine's day for me,  receiving those cards from my mom. 
 As we grew up she continues to do so.  For so many reasons, 
there will never ever be anyone as special as my mom.

For many this is not a good day.  It brings up loneliness
 and despair.  For me it's just another day.  Arvid does not 
even acknowledge the day as anything but a "normal" day. 

 Being with Arvid I have learnt not to think of any day as special. 
Just the mention of Christmas is enough to upset him.  Does
 not mean I like it, just means I have learnt to live with it.

With my family, and for them I am always happy and grateful. 
 I "celebrate" the days that are so called special.  At least we talk
 about it, laugh about it, and compare notes.  Makes it always
 a better day than if I just had to ignore it because of Arvid.

When you focus on the good the good gets better...
