This is the week to celebrate love with Valentines Day falling on Friday. . The malls are all decked out with hearts and other romantic decorations. Love songs are played more often on the radio and I hear lots of love dedications on the air during lunchtime.
There has been an overdose on Love Songs at home too. This year I’ve received my Valentines’ Day present early in the form of CNBlue’s Latest Album. The kids too have been humming and singing along to the tunes on the CD.
Love Girl sung by Jung Yong Hwa is the boys favourite track on that CD. I really wonder in years to come which girl will they be singing this song to.
Listening to the love songs by CNBlue at home made me recall the presents and flowers that I had received on Valentine’s Day.
I remember that one particular year R went off to work in the morning as usual. I wasn’t expecting any thing from him and was surprised to see a bouquet of blue roses delivered to me at work.
Blue roses are my personal favourite and had to be ordered in advance. It is one of the most expensive also. If blue roses are not available I wouldn’t mind getting roses in Peach or Pink too. (HINT HINT!!)
Another year he made a love dedication in print in our local newspapers. ( I still have the cut out in a folder with the rest of the love notes that I have received from him over the years)
R and I haven’t been celebrating Valentines Day on Valentine’s Day itself these few years . We believe that celebrating love should be restricted to just one day in a year but an ongoing process. Love is not something which can be quantified and certainly grows and matures through the ages.
How do you celebrate love?
Anything special planned for this weekend?
