Remember the story I told you about why I didn’t like valentine as a child? Let me tell you how that changed.
I was ten years old and it was Valentine’s day; My parents came into my room. My dad had his hands behind him, mum sat close to me on the bed and gave me a brief speech on how much they loved and valued me. Of course, I was used to being told by them that I was loved and valued, I just wasn’t used to having their attention on Valentine’s day! My dad took the speech up when my mum paused and then, he brought his hands out of their hiding place to reveal a nicely wrapped gift. He handed it to me with a big “Happy valentine’s day baby, we love you”.
I had received gifts from my parents before but this made me feel extra special, I felt a lot more like a part of their world and I really did feel loved. Anyway, guess what the gift was; a cute sandal I had admired from outside a store window when my mum and I went shopping the week before.
