Happy Valentine’s Day

Every February we celebrate Valentines Day by giving flowers, candy and cards to those we love. We do this in honor of Saint Valentine. You may be wondering, “Who is St. Valentine”?

Legend has it that Valentine was a priest who served during third century Rome.  Another legend has it that Valentine was an imprisoned man who fell in love with his jailor’s daughter. Another valentine gentleman you may be wondering about is Cupid (Latin cupido, “desire”). In Roman mythology Cupid is the son of Venus, goddess of love. His counterpart in Greek mythology is Eros, god of love. Cupid is often said to be a mischievous boy who goes around wounding both gods and humans with his arrows, causing them to fall in love.  


Cupid’s arrow hit 39 years ago for me and again two years ago on February 15th when our first grandchild was born.  Today we will be celebrating her 2nd birthday in Tracy, CA.

I hope cupid’s arrow has made a connection for you and that you will be celebrating one of the most romantic days of the year with someone you love.  If cupid’s arrow hasn’t hit, be careful you never know when you could be the next.
