Pause For Thought
From Christina Rees, Writer, Broadcaster and Member of the General Synod
It’s Friday! Even though I don’t have a nine-to-five job, I still get that Friday feeling. I guess it comes from when I was in school – that fantastic sense of freedom at the end of every school week, even though I loved school, I couldn’t wait for the weekends.
Of course I knew in my head that they were only two days but every Friday afternoon the weekend ahead held such promise it might as well have been two months!
There’s a lot of pressure on this weekend. Are you a romantic..? Do you go in for the flowers and chocolates..?
The cynic might say that Valentine’s Day is just another marketing opportunity – taking things and packaging them in something red or pink or frilly or fluffy – and selling them for twice as much!
I don’t think it has to be like that. Valentine’s Day shouldn’t have to bear the burden of having to prove how much you love someone by the extravagance or expense of the gift you buy them.
I used to send cards I made for a favourite aunt and uncle who lived 6,000 miles away in California. I’d make them for every occasion – Valentine’s Day, birthdays, Easter, Christmas. My uncle died a long time ago but my aunt passed away only recently and about a month after she died I got this package in the post from one of my relatives with a bundle of all the old letters I’d written and all the cards I’d made over the years. It amazed me and meant so much to me to think that over the years she’d saved all my messages of love.
Valentine’s Day is a good excuse but I’m trying not wait for the special occasions to tell the people I love that I love them.
