Usually on Valentine's Day I sit at home and have a pity party for myself that I don't have that someone special to share my life with. It's been 11 years since I my divorce and 5 years since I've even had a date.
Lately I've realized that my life IS complete without a man and I think the pity party ship has finally set sail. I have good friends and a wonderful yet nerve wracking son. What else do I need?
I went out to dinner with my son today and actually stayed within my calorie range. We had some amazing laughs that I wouldn't have wanted to share with anyone else anyway. Then my best friend calls just to tell me Happy Valentine's Day. We hardly get to talk because she is caring for her sick mother. She's single too so we make it a point to let each other know that we're still loved on days like today.
To top the day off, I come home and find all the goodies and messages and inspirational words from all my wonderful Spark friends, most of whom I've never even met. So to all of you, I just want to say thank you for making this the best Valentine's Day that I've had in a long, too long, time.
