Baby Boomers can survive Valentine’s Day. The holiday is not only for sweethearts

heartsValentine’s Day may have started out as a lovers day; a day for romantic love and for the exchange of these kinds of feelings. Today…it’s easy to find greeting cards wishing loving messages to your family members, friends and even pets. All those hearts and lacy decorations in stores are no longer the exclusive domain of romantic lovers…but for everyone!

Believing that Valentines Day is only for lovers can be pretty depressing for many people….in fact, for everyone who isn’t in that special romantic moment of bliss. If you find yourself feeling angered by the Valentine displays, and trying to avoid shopping wherever you see these displays…think more about your own loving relationships and how you can celebrate them.

Is there a special aunt or grandparent with whom you have a very dear relationship? How loving and caring it would be to send a special greeting to that person?

Of course….I’m not touting the sale of greeting cards. You can relay your thoughts in a visit, a phone call and even an email. The point is for you to realize the loving relationships you have in your life and to feel privileged to have that connection.
