Valentine's Day 2007

Pin It

Mpj039958900001 It's Valentine's Day 2007.  I'm single, childless, over 20, under 60 and alone on Valentine's Day.

But that's okay. You know why?  Because, four years ago today, Valentine's Day took on a fabulous new meaning.  Cara was born four years ago on Valentine's Day.

Cara's the daughter of my good friend Lucy, so Valentine's Day became a day I looked forward to.

A day I could celebrate away from all the plastic red roses, stale chocolates and gaudy engagement rings.  It's my beloved Cara's birthday and I get to buy presents, and a card, and see her positively twinkle the minute she sees me.  How's that for love?  You can keep your sticky chocolates.

Except this year, Cara has strep throat and she's as contagious as the plague. God knows I love her to death, but strep?  I'll just have to see her when she's better.  So for me, in's just Valentine's Day.

Happy Valentine's Day.
