Will you all be my Valentines? Because I wanted all of you to know that I love you, truly and unsarcastically. I know that there is much anti-Valentine’s day sentiment out there, but it smatters of old-fashioned Vinegar Valentines –and no one should receive insults or nasty things on a day which already charges such a heavy toll on the psyche of anyone who is not happily (or otherwise) paired up.
But I think that Valentine’s day is not just about romantic love. It is about all kinds of love, and as such it should be embraced and enjoyed– like a big box of chocolates! So, dear readers, I LOVE YOU!
I love that you take time out of your day to read what I have to say, and I love that you sometimes poke in the archives and read blasts from the past. I love that some of you leave me happy –or pithy, or wise, or just funny– little comments. The comments are great, and while I don’t usually reply to most of them, I like to email you back if you’ve ever replied to my posts, or mention you down the line. I also like to add you to my Deva Roll, because you’re all gods and goddesses in my mind and I bow to the divinity inside each and every one of you.
I am sincere. I love you all. And since Valentine’s day is all about showing your love (or at least it should be), I thought you should know how I feel, and how thankful I am whenever I click on my trusty little SiteMeter stats.
Have a happy Valentine’s Day, one and all!
PS: I remember looking forward many years ago to The Onion‘s fine Valentine’s day cut-out cards. This year they are a little more sedate but just as funny. Click here to send one to someone special!
Happy V-Day! 🙂
We love you too.
