I hope someday you'll join us, and the world will be as one. "

Chocolates And Flowers

Some people choose to nurture the love in their life; others throw it away as carelessly as tossing out garbage. Regretting it later is usually too late to retrieve the sweetness and ripeness of trust.

Gifting someone you love with chocolates or flowers is a symbol.  Neither gift lasts long; however, the daily reminder throughout the year of how important someone is to you is like watching the flowers grow and bloom or watching fillings be surrounded in chocolate in a candy factory. Giving chocolates and flowers to a loved one is like giving hugs and kisses. Chocolates and flowers are visible, tangible. If they are given with kindness and love, they can be received with gratitude and pleasure. And sharing chocolate with a loved one helps them stick with their diet.

However you celebrate Valentine's Day, I hope it brings sweetness into your life for the day that remains active all year long.

I had a box of chocolates and I ate one and gave away the rest of them. But I did enjoy the one!

Happy Valentine's Day!

I love chocolates and flowers, but I don't jump every time there is a Hallmark Holiday. The unexpected chocolate is more fun. Sharing a chocolate at a meal at unexpected times is more fun. I am more appreciative of the guy who cleans up the kitchen after I cooked the dinner.

Happy Valentine's Day, CiCi! We don't make a big deal for the day, but it's a good excuse for chocolates!

I got some 85% cocoa chocolate from my loved one, and I will enjoy it and will NOT share! :-)
