Last Valentine’s, the day started with a very tragic sight as I witness the family cat fight for its life when a pickup truck hit it twice-first in the head then the body. It was so heart crushing. I then texted the brother and my mom of what happened. I cannot help but cry. I even called beau to just give me some comfort on that very minute. It was just that morning when I went at the rooftop with all of our pets then suddenly this occurred.
The next part of the day came about when a dear friend texted me for a food trip date. Missing their company and how I felt at that moment, I need to escape the sadness so I immediately obliged. A few minutes after that I received a call from the BFF asking if I we can meet up after their office hours to be a shoulder for our broken hearted friend. At first I wasn’t sure of the latter part but after some time I agreed.
It was past 7pm when I told the group that I have to for my second date. The BFF is already at the park so I hurried up knowing that she has no patience in waiting. (shhhh.. ). I also texted the other friend if she’s already there too but after a couple of messages I sent, there were no replies. Anyway, it was timing to see that we are both late. (what’s new?!) And so, this second date was a bit of a ladies’ fellowship; crying, pouring of innermost girl feelings, love lives, etc.
At about past 9pm, we decided to separate ways. Walking home, I called the BF to see how his valentine’s went but he surprised me with sad news that his cousin just passed away. Oh no! Another loss?! I don’t know how many losses I can contain for a day so I took a deep sigh and breathed a prayer. I don’t want to cry. I will not cry, not this time for beau needs me.
When I reached my room, I closed my eyes to talk to God, thanked Him for the day that apart from these situations, He made me smile. Following up with a request to give beau’s family the comfort that they need and mending a friend’s broken heart.
Lord, this valentine may be the oddest valentine I had but then again, I thank You and I praise You. Amen.
