Friday Flash 55 - Happy Valentine's Day - February 11, 201

I haven't got a sweetheart,
But I'm sending love your way,
And hope you have great plans,
To celebrate this special day.

Valentine's should be romantic,
Time for love and tender thought,
But it doesn't need to be,
A show of pricey things you bought.

I am very sure - the gift of love means more!

I am participating in Mr. KnowItAll's Friday Flash 55!

Check it out and join in the fun!


  1. Thanks for your very beautiful post! Hope you will find your Valentine very soon.
    My companion and I don't have any plans for Valentine's day!
    It is Valentine's day everyday;o)
    Thanks for visiting and for taking the time to comment;o)

    Have a happy weekend****

  2. This is so charming. Wishing you a lovely weekend, Carmen.

  3. Love your valentines Thought.

  4. I like your thoughts on Valentine's Day. The card and candy companies, the restaurants and the like all would like to think differently, but love is what it's all about. Although this one was appropriate, I've got a Valentine post coming out on Monday. Thanks for the visit!

  5. Carmen Electra...
    Thank You so much for this Heart-Felt post.
    Given with much Love..
    Thanks for playing, and have a Kick Ass Week-End

  6. Yep. The pricey things don't mean anything in and of themselves. It's only when they are used to say "I love you" that they are worthy.

  7. hope you have a great valentines day...its not about the money spent but the heart with which your love is given...

  8. Don't need a sweetie to be loved - I know there are many who think the world of you my dear.

    Roses, hugs and some Chardonnay

  9. I agree. Money often gets in the way. (but not alwasy... :)

  10. Lovely thoughts. Now could you maybe have a word with my husband? :)

  11. Haven't been no stinkin' pricey things around here for a lifetime!

  12. Wise words! I agree.

    Lovely 55!

  13. Carmen, I cannot be there...but I can be here. And from here, I can wish you love. Those roses are BEEYOOTEEFULL!

    Love was the beginning...and shall be evermore, forevermore.

    What's Chardonnay--grin!
    Love, and PEACE,

  14. you are quite correct. not a cent needs to be spent to show what someone means to you.

  15. The world is full of love.
    No matter what happens.
    Valentine is with you.
    Be happy.
    And be in love.

  16. You've got it so perfect Carmen! It has to be more of love and less of show-off.

  17. A lovely Valentine. And lovely thoughts.

    How lovely to hear that you and your Valentine celebrate Valentine's every day of the year! You are a true romantic! I think that's part of being French, don't you?

    Josep -
    So nice to have you visit. I trust all is well in Barcelona and I hope you papa is responding well to treatment.

    Larry -
    I guess a lot of people will celebrate Valentine's this weekend since Monday is a work day.

    Linda -
    I'll try to do something for Valentine's with my Monday Mellow Yellow post! I'll look for yours as well.

    G-Man -
    You're a sweetheart for stopping by! How about being my Valentine??

    Alice Audrey -
    Given for show only, those expensive gifts are meaningless - though, I suppose, they might come in handy in hard times!

    Brian Miller -
    I don't anticipate doing anything too special for Valentine's...maybe dinner in San Francisco at my favorite Thai restaurant - the owners are like my own family.

    You are so nice and you say such sweet things. You are right, though, I may not have a Valentine but I do have wonderful friends.

    Margaret -
    Well, yes, somtimes, money can be a nice asset.

    Me -
    Your comment gave me a good laugh. Sometimes husbands just don't seem to get it, do they?

    Sharbytes -
    Maybe there are no pricey things there but I KNOW there is much love!

    Steve E -
    I always love to see you here. I keep thinking one of these days I'm going to be stopping in Naples to have a cup of coffee with you!!

    I'll just think back of some wonderful Valentine's of yore and some real sweethearts I've known!

    Bhavesh Chhatbar -
    I'm glad you liked my Valentine's poem. Loving wishes to you and Meha!

  19. Now, this is perfect! I do like the showing things though. . .I am going to try to be a grown up and remember your words of wisdom.

  20. It does. The gift of love is so much more...

  21. That is a beautiful 55 m'dear and so true. :)

  22. Awww.. How sweet and so true too! !Love means a lot more than just a bunch of pricey stuff... it's way more precious than that! :)

    For such a noble thought in 55, here's a ton of love coming your way too, my friend...
