What is this Sweetest day people are talking about? Another imitation of Valentines day I thought to myself. I paid it no mind and didn’t bother to do more research until a few friends this weekend asked me what do I have planned for my half? I said with confidence, “This girls GOT IT! She’s got it, she’s got it!” as I’m dancing in a circle. *giggles* Ohhh I was being silly.
Sweetest day is a holiday mostly celebrated in the Great lakes region. A day of opportunity to celebrate remembrance of the sick, the aged and orphans, and any friends, relatives, and associates whose helpfulness and kindness we have enjoyed. Like I said, “another imitated V-Day!”.
At the get together last week one of my guy friend mentioned this day and said, “SWEETEST day is made for girls to spoil the guys for once. I thought hmmm…it sounds great…BUT it wasn’t meant for that! I told him give me one reason why it should be for the girls to splurge on the guys for once. His answer: “It will show your appreciation and love for the guys, but when you do that it will be reciprocated. Love comes full circle anyways. Men work hard…we put you ladies first everyday.” I personally never really celebrated Valentines day. I feel that the love should be shared everyday and when days like this comes around its a reminder to keep the lovin’ flowing. ANYWAYS…I took my love one to the DAVE CHAPPELLE SHOW for some great laughs last night! Celebrating a just because day. *SMILES*
What do you have gathered for your SWEETHEART? You still have exactly 8 days. Get on it. Have a lovely SUNDAY!
