A Death, A Birthday, and a Hallmark Holiday- Valentine's day love....a little differently.

It's been awhile...
I know. I've been doing that thing we do when we are in between places of emotional health worth talking about. You know, not down enough to sob and grunt and connect, but not beaming and inspirational.

Today is Valentine's Day. It means a lot to me, but not in any way you would think. Yes, I made my son adorable hand-made valentines for pre-school....yes, I eat chocolate but that is about where it stops for me.

Here's a short five-minute video explaining what Valentine's day is to me. Here's a few minutes of your time to remind you about how fleeting love and life can be and how that isn't a scary or sad thing, rather the biggest reason to share, be, give and always love the ones you do, and even the one's you think you don't....because love is most important- Not a Tiffany's bag. Not an engagement ring size. Not the grades your child got in the latest comparison score tests for genius/gifted/grounded/super children.

No, What is important is that the people you love...know it.  At least, that's what I think (feel.) I've been wrong before...
