Happy Valentine's Day To Those That Celebrate....
Posted By: Shannon W.
I think my dislike for Valentine’s Day began many, many years ago in Elementary School. Each year the teacher would force all students to bring in a decorated shoe box for our Valentine’s Day party. Students would be given a list of names of every student in their class and were expected to make a Valentine to give to each one on the list. I would work hours to pick out the perfect little valentine card for each person. I was always so excited to give them out as school…only to be disappointed at peoples comments about my cards. Kids can say some really mean and hateful things. While I don’t remember the exact words, I do remember how much they hurt and how totally alone I always felt.
My dislike for Valentine's Day has gotten worse through the years thanks to worthless ex-boyfriends and an ex-husband. Maybe someday this stupid holiday will be wiped off the calendar.
Anyway, from Shelby and I ....
