When I was working as an RA at BYU my building advisor had a special meeting with all six of us RAs as Valentine's days approached. She expressed her love for the holiday that celebrated love. Love for friends and family in addition to special someones. Since then it has been my goal to enjoy this day and celebrate the gratitude I have for those close to me.
Sometimes the loneliness of being, well, single is very apparent in its solidarity. But love and fulfillment come in so many forms that they cannot be brushed aside. Even for one day of the year.
