I guess for me the best memory I have of Valentines Day, is one that most people would never consider.. I was in the midst of a horrible divorce and I and 2 daughters had NO WHERE to go. Some very dear friends from church offered their home and "booted" one of their children from their own room, to give us a place to stay. That year Valentines Day was quickly approaching and I offered to watch all the kids while they went out. They would have nothing of it. They INSISTED on staying home with me and ALL the kids and having a night in.
Sometimes Real Love has nothing to do with "romance", it can be the very generous gift they gave a friend in need..
