…all you need.
When I woke up this morning and walked into the kitchen, I found a vase of flowers with a box of candy waiting for me. The candy had a little creature attached. His name tag says he is Cuddle, so I’ve named him Cuddle Russell (it was Russell Stover candy). I shot this photo of those gifts from Tom with the cross-stitch Marika crafted and sent me for Christmas. I’ve been saving it to share on this date. Its rustic frame generally matches one with a moose my mother stitched for me; “Love” will hang next to the moose.
I know there are Valentine’s Day haters and people who call it a Hallmark holiday, commercialized and designed to make alone people lonelier. I think it’s a day less about what you get than what you have–and if that doesn’t include a special someone, it must surely include the love of family, friends, neighbors, animal companions, a deity if you so believe–even the love you feel for nature, art, books…and the Beatles!
Prompt from FMS Photo A Day.
