A TRIBUTE TO MY PARENTS ON VALENTINE’S DAY
|Which one are you? There’s a third one – being single and NOT available.|
My mother passed away in February 2021 at age 94. She never remarried, and remained a widow all these past 64 years although she had suitors. Alzheimer’s robbed her of much of her memory in her final years. I am sure she missed my father on days when her mind was clear, and her memory sharp. On those good days when I showed her an old photo of a loving couple, and asked if she knew who the couple was, without any hesitation, she would reply ‘That’s me and that’s your father. But he’s gone now. He was very good to me.’
Whether you are single, married, divorced or widowed, today is the day we celebrate LOVE. We should be celebrating love every day, in the little things we do, for the people we love. Love doesn’t have to cost a cent. Love can be a genuine smile, a warm hug or an affectionate kiss. Or a good deed for someone we don’t know but who needs our help.
HAPPY LOVE DAY, EVERYONE!
