I Heart Valentine's Day!


Let me not to the marriage of true minds Admit impediments. Love is not love

Which alters when it alteration finds, Or bends with the remover to remove:

O no! it is an ever-fixed mark That looks on tempests and is never shaken;

It is the star to every wandering bark, Whose worth's unknown, although his height be taken.

Love's not Time's fool, though rosy lips and cheeks Within his bending sickle's compass come:

Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, But bears it out even to the edge of doom.

If this be error and upon me proved, I never writ, nor no man ever loved.

William Shakespeare (1564 - 1616)

I had about 1 hour to peruse the blogosphere today, and I note people either heart Valentines Day, or loathe the day.

I actually cannot think of a better thing to celebrate, than being in love, or being loved, and thanking those who love me, and reminding those I love that it is just that..... Even in those moments I am not soooo lovable at all.

The grouchy days, when I wish I could take those words I said, and bury them in the back yard where no one would ever hear them again. The days where I wasn't the best daughter, friend, Sister, Wife, Mother. Because lets face it, none of us are perfect.

So I think this is a glorious day to celebrate those who love us, and those we love, thorns and all.

And I dig Sonnet 116. It is one of my favorite reads on this Holiday, heck I do not care if this Holiday is a "made up " day....

I have a full heart, and enough chocolate to last me a month, if I ration it....
