David says Valentines day is a pile of commercial crap. Possibly invented by makers of Hallmark card. And now-a-days has very little to do with that widely recognized third century Roman saint.

He’s right of course, but now as a mother I see the day differently altogether. I see it as a day of Love. A chance to remind lovers and parents and children that we are connected, that my heart beats in their lives.
