Should I even write about this? This will be a problem. I don't know about any other year but this is the year that it will be a problem. I'm tracking my hormones because I don't need to have PMS around this time either!!! Listen to me! If you get a call or a text in the middle of the night, answer it because I will not be okay!!!
What doesn't make it better is that I love pink!!! Everything is pink and filled with pastel and sweet messages. NONE OF THEM FOR ME!!! Don't get me wrong. My children love me and I will buy them candy and stuffed animals that I will end up keeping until they move out of the house and leave it all so I can throw it all out.
Step 1: Be happy for those celebrating. For 24 years, I was one of those celebrating. Santi gave me a silver ring with a heart for my last Valentine's Day with him which brings me to...
Step 2: Remember the good times. I had no idea the last time would be the last time. I will break out the ring and wear it. Maybe I'll try not to cry. It's my mother's birthday as well. Man!!! It may not be a good day for remembering.
Step 3: Spend it with my loved ones. I have friends. I have children. Valentine's Day candy all around for everyone. Maybe we will make gluten free pizza shaped like a heart.
Step 4: God is love. God is love and He gave Love to save us. Why? Because He loves us. He will never leave us nor forsake us so in a way, I will be spending Valentine's with a very special Someone.
That's it. That's the plan for February 14th, 2020. Yes, there is every possibility of me writing a weepy and nostalgic post or an angry anti-love diatribe but you can't say I didn't TRY to come up with a plan.
