Being Your Own Valentine

Posted by Susan J Berger on 3:00:00 AM with 31 comments
It's a day for love or a day for feeling woefully inadequate because
You haven't met your true love.
You lost your true love.
You have kids and exactly when are you going to be able to shove the dresser up against the bedroom door and celebrate properly?

Or there 's the other scenario:
We're celebrating, but is it romantic enough? I bet some else is out there doing it better.
My least favorite romantic line? "You complete me." From Jerry Maguire.
Said by a needy man who wasn't good with either words or relationships, but what the hey, Tom Cruise said it and he's pretty.
It took me a long time to believe I was worthy of love. And I finally realized that the person I most need to love me is . . . me. I needed to know I was already complete.
There are lots of people I love and lots of people who love me, including my wasband. But none of us complete each other. And that's a good thing.

This year I am my own Valentine and I plan to make a great job of it.
my Agenda:
Buy myself my favorite flowers. I deserve them.

I've made my Valentine at a Valentine party I went to. Inside, I am going to write  the ten things I love most about me.
I haven't decided on my date yet. I'm torn. Go to see Dame Edna at the Music Center and eat beforehand at the Nickel Diner and having their Smore's Cake? Buy myself Jayne Ann Krentz's latest book, Trust No One and snuggle in that night at home with Chocolate?
Hmmm. No matter which I choose, that Smore's cake is going to be part of it. I have my monthly volunteer stint with Reading to Kids at Leo Politi Elementary in the morning and The Nickle Diner is not that far away.
And, of course, I want to give something to YOU, dear readers.
I have five books for giveaway. Three of them by Susan Elizabeth Phillips,  - Breathing Room, Heaven Texas and This Heart of Mine. I am also giving away a copy of Linda Lael Miller's The Marriage Charm and Where's My Hero? Three short stories by Lisa Kleypas, Julia Quinn and Kinley MacGregor.

I'm also giving away a paperback copy of my book, Time and Forever. I forgot I had copies.

That's six prizes.
Leave me a comment telling me at least three good things you are going to tell yourself you love about you. Yes, you are definitely worth loving. Love on!
