Today is Valentine’s Day. A day to profess your undying adoration for those special people in your life. Or, as my husband insists, it’s a made-up observance to make money for the greeting card and candy industries.
It’s not a particularly important holiday for us. We’ve been together for nearly 40 years. There is only so much chocolate, so many pink and red cards we can exchange, and so many dead flowers to compost.
We laugh together, still hold hands, and sincerely enjoy each other’s company. We say, “I love you,” and do little things to make each other feel appreciated every day.
No holiday, real or manufactured, is needed to celebrate what we have.
“Card? We ain’t got no cards! We don’t need no cards! I don’t have to show you any stinking cards!” Paraphrased from The Treasure of the Sierra Madre
