Valentines Day and Thoughts of Love

My Dear Future Readers,

Today is Valentines Day. On this day we think of those we love…. Our families and our significant others.

Truthfully, I used to not be so into Valentines Day for many years. I looked at everyone who had someone to celebrate with and I thought to myself…

Why don’t I have someone to celebrate with too? Everyone has a boyfriend or girlfriend except me.

But then, I just sort of gave up on the idea of Valentines Day.   And now, I think I was wrong. My reaction to this holiday was all wrong. Love is for everyone to share. It does not matter if you found your true love or you’re still looking like I was until now  when love has found it’s way to me finally, what is important is that you show the people in your life already that you love them.

Your significant other will come when you are ready and Valentines Day will be that much more special.

On Valentines Day , we think and talk about love. After all, love is the most important thing in our lives. It keeps us safe when we are in danger, it makes us strong when we are weak, it gives us hope and support when we have none.

What I have learned about love recently?

I have learned a lot of things about love as 2015 ended and 2016 began and I am still learning these things.

The First thing that I have learned about love has to do with what I call Beauty-Handsome Factor. They say that beauty is what matters most when two people meet. But I havwe found that to be a bit altered in reality. If you were ever like me, insecure about your beauty then the right man will make you feel beautiful. No matter what you are wearing or if you put make up on today or not, he love the way you look regardless of appearance and that will make you feel beautiful and confident.

It doesn’t matter what you look like as long as the man you are with makes you feel like a Princess.

The Second thing I learned about love   is what I like to call The Brain and Goals Factor. I realized now that a woman with big dreams and goals for her life is a very attractive point in a woman. If a woman is goal oriented and has big dreams it doesn’t normally scare men off as long as the woman they are with supports their dreams as well. The dream-train goes both ways, make no mistake on that.

The man you choose for a significant other will respect your dreams if you respect and support his own dreams. Be smart on this one. Being a woman with big dreams can only understand a man with big dreams.

The Third thing I learned is called Family Relations. This is important because when Mr. Right decides you are Mrs. Right, you will want to maintain good relations with his family. Just like he will want to maintain good relations with your family. It is best to always be the best you can be. Yes, I do not say this without knowing. I know what it means to be an accepted member of a family. That has to come even before you say “I do.” Your Mr. Right will love you more as will his family.

Honesty is always good!  Be yourself and be honest with him and everyone else. Be respectful. Love takes work and if you work at it you will be happy.

After all, love was what created the world we live in. Be kind and happy and MR. Right will come along.

Let your love be happy and your day a bright sunshine.

HAPPY VALENTINES DAY TO ALL!! I thank you all for your infinite support.

Yours Truly,

Diana Rose

Reflection on a Life Lived

My Dear Future Readers:

It is today that is February 1st.

February 1st…..a usually happy day for my family. But today something is quite different. Today it is a sad day for the first time in a long time.

February 1st will always be the day of the anniversary when my grandparents married.

Today is the 71st Wedding Anniversary of my grandparents marriage. They lived a very happy life together. Yes, it is sad that they are no longer alive. It is sad that I will not take the car service or the two buses to go to see my grandparents and wish them a Happy Anniversary

 
My grandfather was a very supportive and compassionate, caring, loving, and understanding person. He was very optimistic about life and he supported my grandmother who was always worrying about everything.
 
They were my first teachers about true love because even if my grandmother was always worried and unsure, he was sure. He was her brick wall that she could lean on in hard times and they loved us.
 
It is sad that I can’t go to Boro Park and see them today because my mom and I always went to see them and now all there is are memories and thoughts of how they loved us and each other.
 
I feel honored that I got lucky that they were always there for me. My grandfather taught me to be optimistic in life and I miss that. He was a true head of the household and no matter what I could always depend on his optimism.
 
My grandmother taught me to be kind and gentle with people. She was very generous with everyone no matter who it was. She would give her last piece of clothing if it helped someone stay warm. I felt happy with them. My grandmother always had a smile to share and a hug to give. She was truly a light in the most beautiful way. They completed each other and I only hope that my life would be as beautiful as the life they lived together.
I want to thank you all for caring and listening because today is truly a sad day for my family. I thank you all for your infinite support.
Yours Truly,
Diana Rose
