Yes, Valentine's Day is totally overrated when you're single! But 3 years ago I started to care about this holiday because for the first time I felt thought of. Pleasantly suprised to walk into work 3 years ago, I had a beautiful bouquet of red roses, balloons and a box of chocolates waiting for me. I was thrilled to be thought of in such a personal way. It was all for me, and had me genuinely smiling for days. That was the turning point for me and my expectations were set. Last year I was a bit disappointed that I wasn't thought of as I had been the year before. And this year I was looking forward too make it really romantic. Sadly I was dumped 2 weeks before. But its all good because I still was able to celebrate the love with my sister Alberta =) She came out here to be with me as my heart is healing and to help me reflect. As I poured out my heart to her I realized the changes I needed to make in order to move forward positively with my life. I'm so thankful for my sister and the support and love she has shown me. I consider myself very blessed with the relationship that I have with my sisters and with my close friends. I'm coming to realize what true friends really are. I am a Romantic at heart, and one day I know that I will fully be appreciated and I will fully appreciate the woman in my life. But as for now I am happy to be who am and know I am loved.
