St Valentines day is about so much more than candy and flowers.

Happy St Valentines day Richard & Beth Witt and the rest of the AR family!

On Valentine's Day I can not help but think of my Dad because for as far back as I can remember he always gave me a little heart shaped box full of chocolate candy. He continued to do so as long as he lived. I always miss my Dad but I especially miss him on Valentine's Day!

 

I never paid much attention to why we celebrate Valentine's Day all I cared about was getting my box of candy with hugs and kisses from my Dad and then as I got older I just celebrated the day much like everyone does... buying cards, flowers, gifts and lots of hugs and kisses.

 

Today I did a Google Search and found out that we have been celebrating Valentine's Day in memory of a Roman priest who was martyred on or around February 14th in the year 270 CE.By the 15th century, it had evolved into an occasion in which lovers expressed their love for each other by presenting, flowers, candy and greeting cards (known as "valentines").

 

 

  "The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt with the heart." --Helen Keller

 

"It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye."--Antoine de Saint-Exupery

 

"You come to love not by finding the perfect person, but by seeing an imperfect person perfectly."
--Sam Keen

 

"We are all born for love... it is the principle existence and it's only end."
--Benjamin Disraeli

 

"Love doesn't make the world go round, love is what makes the ride worthwhile."
--Elizabeth Browning

 

"All love is sweet, given or returned."
--Percy Bysshe Shelley

 

Love begins at home, and it is not how much we do...but how much love we put in that action.
Mother Teresa

Good selection for a reblog.  I always thought Cupid had a big part in Valentine's Day, and wasn't aware of the true meaning.
