The days they were born, the days they died, Mother's Day, Father's Day, the last day I saw my father in Heathrow, my sister's wedding where she walked down the aisle without them both - it feels like the years are now littered with land mines, imploding one day to the next, a razor-sharp reminder of our loss. I'm thinking every year as to whether a "miracle" will take place on Valentine's Day, waiting for a surprise element or a superb proposal coming my way.

The Valentine's Day that many have come to know and love (and loathe) has evolved quite a bit from times of desperate love letters while in prison and fertility rituals in pagan Rome.

A lover's broken heart could well be what it says and means. More than 189 stems of roses are sold on Valentine Day. So, I am getting her an induction stove this time. I also suggest my dad to get some lovely gifts for her.

Shouldn't Valentine's Day be celebrated (or not celebrated) of one's own choosing? Valentine's during school days use to be something blushing. Thank them for what they have done for you.
