Happy Valentine’s Day

Standard

Valentine’s Day. To so many, these things might come to mind: The colors red and pink. Candy hearts, chocolate and flowers. For husbands and wives it may mean the acquisitions of babysitters… getaways or romantic dinners out, gifts of certificates for massage for her and golf packages for him.

I was having a conversation with a friend who expressed, like so many others do, they feel Valentine’s Day is “just another day”. This made my heart ache. For more reasons than I can express.  I know many people feel this way and I always wish I could personally change their mind about it somehow. If I could give them just one small, feeling of love on Valentine’s Day that made them realize how unique and amazing…how useful and special they truly are, I’d love that.  When this person said this to me I responded, “You say that because there won’t be heart-shaped whole wheat pancakes, bacon, fresh fruit and coffee on a tray at your bedside, in the morning for you…Or maybe there WILL be. What do I know?! ” I laughed to myself really, because I know so little about my friend’s relationship, for feeling like I know them like I do. It reminded me, I can be so presumptuous. I checked myself.  However, their response was, their mate “doesn’t cook”.  Oh boy…

My Valentine’s Day is certainly very different this year, but I still find love all around me and reasons to share love with those I care about. There WILL be heart-shaped pancakes and dippy eggs on Nathan’s plate before we head out to his girlfriend’s baton competition this morning!  Woot!!

I haven’t written in eons. I’ve been massively dim. The juices have definitely not been flowing. But this person… This one has me thinking. And i like it.

So to you I say, THANK YOU my friend and… Happy Valentine’s Day.  Whether you like it or not 😉  And this breakfast is for you (except we both know the P’cakes would be whole wheat haha)!  No offense to your girl.

About Megan Delaney

You can take the girl outta Maryland, but ya can't take the Blue Crab taste buds offa the girl you TOOK outta Maryland. In other words. I'll always be a Maryland girl. My husband, son and I have lived in York, PA since 2005 and to date, we've found ONE restaurant that can make a REAL Maryland crab cake. If it's eggs in chicken noodle soup you're lookin' for, Pennsylvania's where you'll wanna lay your roots on down. Either that or Fastnachts. They're donuts. Or so I'm told. Never had one, but man do folks go NUTS over them up here! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fasnacht_(doughnut) Anyway - much "about me" can be found on the pages of my blog, as I love to write about life's THINGS that happen. My goal is to touch folks through a relateable experience or make them laugh. I have an off-beat, sometimes warped sense of humor. Not everybody appreciates that I like to share my life in such a public way but I am a passionate person, with a lot to say and I love to express myself through writing. So to those of you who like and appreciate it - I express to you my absolute and genuine gratitude and thanks for following me and sharing me with friends and family. For those that don't, I offer you this quote to ponder: Wear a smile and have friends; wear a scowl and have wrinkles. - George Eliot - I say SCREW WRINKLES!
