My First and Last ┬áValentine’s Day

Honestly, the first time I had celebrated Valentine’s Day was 22 years ago when my hubby was dating with me.

He had bought a bouquet of pink roses, wrote a ready-made card and put them in a paper bag.

He said that it was embarrassing for him to carry the rose around the shopping mall where I was working.

Hence, he passed the paper bag to me with the gift inside.

I was extremely thrilled and happy because that was my first experience in receiving flowers on this special occasion.

Unfortunately, that was the last time I had received.

After marriage, my hubby didn’t shower any gifts to me nor celebrate Valentine’s Day anymore.

He said that Valentine’s Day is a mushy and waste of money. Celebrating events isn’t his cup of tea.

Hence, I had never celebrate Valentine’s Day ever since.

No more sweet Valentine’s Day

Since then, I never look forward to Valentine’s Day as I know that it was a D day for me once I stepped into marriage life.

Every year, I do envy those young lovebirds and married middle-aged couples with kids, walking hand in hand with a stalk of rose in one hand.

I yearned so much to be that lady holding that stalk of rose.

Furthermore, my hubby never held my hand after we had kids too.

I could only held onto my son’s hand or hang over my arms over my teenager’s shoulder.

I resigned my fate that Valentine’s Day will not return as in the past.

No more sweet Valentine’s Day but it is┬ávery touching to receive a handmade Valentine’s Day card from my son which he had made in his Art lesson.
