Yesterday was an emotionally grueling day for me, not to mention the fact that I'm apparently starting to get worse, not healthier. Add to that a typically long day at work, and I came home pretty burnt out. CC had yet another work dinner at some fancy, yummy place last night, so I actually beat him home.
When he finally got home, guess what he had with him?
|They're even more gorgeous in person!|
Don't you wish that as adults we could still make the Valentine's mailbox, stick it on the corner of our desk, and give and receive valentines all day long? Eat the red and pink candy and enjoy the fact that you're with people you care about (or at least sit next to all day)? I wish we could still do that.
But then there's the part of me that doesn't like the expectation of it all. I refused to wear my heart sweater today (since it would be expected) and wore my favorite sweatshirt instead. (Sometimes I feel like Jekyll and Hyde when it comes to things like this!) I don't like the pressure we all feel to be SURE everyone knows they're loved on this one day. If I'm showing Jesus right, everyone should feel loved every day throughout the year, you know? Hmm.
Anyway, while I'm figuring that out, I'll still enjoy my roses and the people I'm surrounded by, both virtually and physically in the every day life.
