Valentine's Day 2020

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.
