Is valentines day…

Happy or sad?

For me it is a sad day, I would have to say far beyond Christmas, Thanksgiving, memorial day, 4th of July, NYE, labor day I struggle with Valentines day the most.

And let me just start by saying it has not nothing to do with being single(although probably it doesnt help any🤣)

My dad spoiled me and my mom every valentines day with flowers, chocolates, jewelry, stuffed animals, and so on valentines day I miss him that much more😭

Grief never goes away completely you just learn how to live your life while being as happy as you can… grief will pop up in the most inopportune times and for some the grief can become almost unbearable. People dont know how much it hurts and that is okay… I smile and go through my day like always but inside I am broken and on the verge of falling apart😐

The only thing that makes valentines good this year is that it is on Thursday(my fav day of the week) and knowing that pop is celebrating valentines day with his saviour in Heaven and I will see him again❤

Hug those you love a little tighter this valentines day and appreciate every moment you have💗
