A Christmas “Like”

Confession (film)

I feel a confession coming on, and since it is Christmas I think that all my blog friends will forgive me. Sometimes I hit “like” just to say hi. I read your posts 90% of the time; okay 75% of the time, but sometimes when I am in a rush I just want to acknowledge you and your friendship—so I hit “like”. Sometimes I hit “like” when I have nothing to add; and on occasion I hit “like” to let you know that I was there and support you.

Please forgive me. I find myself wrapped up in a lot of “to-dos” which should be “already-dones” so my free time has been limited of late. I would not come by if I did not care—so for that 25% of the time that I do not give you my full attention—remember I am thinking of you anyway.

And as a side note–I owe a few of you some replies to your comments – I am on it.

Do you ever “like” just to say hi?

Cupid Sometimes Misses Mark

Love

We all see them. Ignore them if you will. But little pink and red hearts have been floating around since mid-January, and what else could it mean other than that celebration that starts some hearts a-fluttering, and some hearts to drop.

I have always had a love/hate relationship with the day, depending on my relationship status. Some years I would ignore it, some years embrace it, and other years look on it as an annoyance. This year I will celebrate my 31st wedding anniversary, so I have come to blissful terms with it.  But, I am still somewhat flummoxed by the fact that males are on the hook for this holiday for some reason, and females get a pass. It is a mystery.

I have decided to think of Valentine’s Day as I think of the month of February. I am not going to fight it. I have come to the comfortable conclusion that it is a day to show others that you care, a day to remind of us of romantic love—captured, lost, or remembered, and a day when we should look beyond the flowers and chocolates and jewellery to the heart, and to friendship, and to genuine caring.

Maribeau, a French revolutionary and journalist sums up my feelings on romantic love quite neatly. Call me a sceptic, a cynic, or a hopeless romantic, this is what he said:

“Love has the power of making you believe what you would normally treat with the deepest suspicion.”

So what do you think of Valentine’s Day? Do you think Maribeau was right? Is Valentine’s Day a blissful day for you, or an annoyance?
