Honestly, Christmas is the hardest one for me - the holiday that makes me feel the most lonely and most critical of my life. But Valentine's Day doesn't make me lonely because while I might not have the life I thought I'd have at this point, I do have plenty of love.
Yesterday I took part in a medical survey for the county I live in. The woman giving the survey asked questions about every aspect of my health - physical, mental, emotional. She asked very personal questions and for the most part showed no reaction to any of my answers, but just moved swiftly to the next question.
But when we got to one question, she softened for a just a couple seconds. The question was:
How often do you get the emotional support you need?
I thought about it for a second and I pictured my family, my friends, and my church group, then I answered "Always." She said in a sincere voice, "That's really nice."
And it is nice - I'm very lucky.
But before you think I'm being too mushy, I don't only love humans and God and stuff like that. I also love these gifs:

Happy Valentine's Day!
