365 Gratitude Project – Day 45: Valentine’s Day

February 14, 2017

I’ve been watching a BBC production, Call the Midwife, on NetFlix. A recent episode had a quote that ran through it, “Be grateful for what you have got, not for what you’ve not got,” and it spoke to me, considering my heartbreak this last year. It was a reminder of why I began this project in the first place. Here it is, St. Valentine’s Day, and I’m alone. I wasn’t last year and I felt it keenly last night when I saw him happy with someone else. But the point is he is happy and so is she and, though I am alone now, I am grateful to have had the time with him that I did. I’m grateful that for a short time I had a great friend and a sweet love and I can hold those memories in my heart and treasure them. People change, connect and disconnect – life continues.

Happy St. Valentine’s Day 💝
