Several people I know are caregivers for ailing spouses, parents, etc.
I would like to post this as a virtual valentine to everyone in my life in this position.
A friend in this position said it the best today (and I hope she forgives me for putting this online):
"I think it's a holiday to show unexpected love, or MORE love to those who already know you love them. Christmas got to be too much pressure and I couldn't keep up, so I send very few nowadays. But Valentine's Day seems to be so much less complicated, and there's no religious differences to consider either. "
So....let me take this opportunity to show love to those in my lives who need more. And really, isn't that all of us?
