Over the last 20 years of my life I can recall quiet a few V-day’s yet I do not recall a single one in which I received a gift other than one given to me by my parents. While I appreciate the sentiment and love my parents dearly… When you watch your friends post engagement photos, big bouquets, chocolates, date night out, and so much more those flowers from my parents seem less and less meaningful.
The older I get the more I realize I need to appreciate the things I do have in life and the love my parents have for me, but it is hard on days like today when you are smacked in the face left and right by posts on social media about what you don’t have.
I’m sure mr. right is out there somewhere wondering about me… and to him I say hurry up. I’m waiting. I miss you and I love you.
