I was happy today. I didn't have a thought of any man in my head.
I put on my old engagement ring, right hand, and just smiled at how pretty it is.
It may seem superficial to admire a sparkly thing but if you knew the story behind it, you would see its not superficial at all. But there are some stories you do not share. I learned that a long time ago and my pretty little ring reminds me of that every time I see it shine and sparkle at me.
I put everything in the past, everything from yesterday back.
Valentine's means so much more to me than Xmas or New Years put together.
Its a holiday that celebrates nothing more than love. It celebrates new love, old love, and the possibility of love. And why, I may seem a bit re-morsed with my Cupids, I do really love it.
Its a celebration of all who have made it through the dark and light and still together.
Its a calling card of hope for those that started to fade on the idea of love.
For nothing more than a few flowers, a bit of chocolate, and a silly card can send a lifetime of sentiment to someone.
On account of Valetine,I was warm and fuzzy and forgetful today.
I forgot my student ID when I went to take my test.
I forgot my scarf when I went home to get my ID.
And I forgot about the last guy I went out with.
I got my ID
I got my scarf
I got an A on my test
and I went shopping for my loved ones.
I dressed up like I was going for a romantic lunch date and I went to the Godiva kiosk for the chocolate. I have to go back tomorrow because I am not the only one who forgets on Valentine. The salesperson forgot to place one of the boxes in my bag.
Even with one less chocolate sentiment, I was still happy and I called and we worked it out for me to pick up my forgotten box of chocolates in the morning.
I went to the card store and it seemed picked over so I went to my local grocery. There I was on the phone with my newly engaged friend and listening to him brag about his Valentine events.
While I listened intently to him, I looked at the stock of cards and they had little to offer.
I left the grocery emtpy handed, smiling, happy to go to another store and then...
Out of the blue this SUV. I wouldn't have thought about it other than the gold emblem but as I glimpsed and walked on to my car it made some very awkward moves.
The driver seemed to be in a panic.
I do not see why?
Maybe it might have been someone I went out with a few times and was told he wasn't interested. He had found someone else.
Pehaps she was in the SUV with him.
Perhaps he thought I would try to say hello.
Well, I wouldn't have.
A Blonde can only take so much rejection.
I have my pride.
I would have done exactly what I did when I saw him the minute I walked out of the grocery.
I ignored him and went to my car.
For a minute he did put a huge damper on my day.
To think someone would go through all that trouble to avoid me.
Ouch~~~That really hurt.
And on my Happy Valentine Day.
The Blonde isn't a basket case!
