Countdown to Love

Wow, two posts in one day - that hasn't happened in awhile... *smiles* Just a short one though, to remind you of this:

And I'm actually looking forward to it this year... I had rather expected that I'd be cynical about it, but some things have changed lately and I find my heart expanding to embrace the spirit of the holiday... I realise it's over-commercialised and over-done to death in many cases, but that's not really what I'm focused on here... I'm thinking of this holiday from the perspective it's *supposed* to be about - Love... Love for others, love for ourselves, love in all it's many variences... And I've found that I am open to love again - to loving and being loved... And that's an amazing thing...

    ARE you being loved, Angel? Or are you just open to the idea?

    *smiles* Straight to the point, hmmm, my darling Axe...? The short and simple answer is: "Yes, to both..." The longer, more complex answer I think I'll keep to myself for now... ;)

    I guess I never looked at it that way. Every valentines day I get very moody, and even less talkative. I'm like the Grinch on Valentines Day. Stealing everyones candy. I bet when I find love it will be a totally different story.

    I was like that for a long while, Charles... And there's nothing wrong with that... Go with what you feel... If you don't like Valentine's Day, do your best to avoid it - there's no sense in being forced to participate in something that makes you unhappy and uncomfortable... When you're ready to celebrate it, you'll feel it... *soft smile*

    I'm with Charles. But then again, as a manager at Hallmark, I saw the darkness of it, and the true commercialism. I'm so happy to hear that you're in love though, hon. :)

    p.s: and i win slacker of the year for not participating sooner in this!
