Celebrations serve as a reminder of all that is special, all that we believe in. Some people take things for granted. I assume I am guilty of this too, in certain ways that I am unaware of, simply because I have been taking them for granted. Nevertheless, I can’t quite say that I'd been living in a happy little bubble of ignorance.
I appreciate my parents. There is undeniably a generation gap between us and I may not be able to comprehend them at times due to this, but a lack of understanding does not necessitate a lack of love. I know that deep down inside, they love and care for me, even if they do not parade it in ways I can relate to.
I appreciate my friends. They are the people that have been with me through thick-and-thin, the people that are there for me right where it matters. They are the people that make my life so much more colourful and brighten the darkest skies.
In short, thank you, everyone - whoever you are, wherever you may be – thank you for brushing shoulders with me upon the crossroads of Life. So many people have played in part in helping me get through my life and I am sincerely grateful to all of you. I love you all.
Happy Valentine’s Day.
