Valentines day chocolates made by my kids for their special friends. I’m not quite ready or equipped with the know how to deal with even the idea of a 13 year old with a girlfriend to be quite honest. “What does it mean?” I ask him but he just looks at me and shakes his head. I think it means that you just go out to the shops or movies and you may not even sit together, yet. So after many years of ignoring Valentines day we are suddenly in another place with chocolates being made, roses bought and a visit to the movies planned.
And us? We took the opportunity to be grateful for love and to be loved; to reflect on the things that make our relationship strong and to thank each other for putting up with our respective craziness and annoying habits. I bought a very special bottle of wine and some lovely tasty morsels of food. We had a picnic in our lounge room until it was time to pick up the 13 year olds. How about you – what did you do today?
