Valentine’s Day is coming!

I know that some people get excited about giving and/or receiving gifts on Valentine’s Day, others think Valentine’s Day is just a materialistic holiday, and others are really sad on Valentine’s Day because they do not have a significant other.Β 

What do you think about Valentine’s Day?

When I was a kid, I got SO excited about Valentine’s Day! πŸ˜€ My classmates and I would exchange Valentines Day cards and candy. We made Valentine’s Day boxes for our classmates to put the cards and candy in, and I really enjoyed making my Valentine’s Day box! πŸ™‚

I remember wearing a pink or red shirt on Valentine’s Day along with my Valentine’s Day earrings πŸ™‚

I remember that when I was in Middle School, a boy that I had a HUGE crush on surprised me with roses and a little teddy bear on Valentine’s Day! πŸ™‚

Then, as I got older, I became against Valentine’s Day. πŸ˜‰ I actually remember wearing all black on Valentine’s Day to my Japanese class at university in order to “protest” Valentine’s Day. My TA asked me why I was wearing all black, and when I explained (in Japanese of course πŸ˜‰ ), she laughed so hard. πŸ˜€

At that point in my life, I was skeptical that the love that you areΒ  “supposed to feel” on Valentine’s Day actually existed.

Since then, I have changed my views about Valentine’s Day. Instead of Valentine’s Day being about romantic love, I view it as a day of celebrating ALL love! ❀

Whether or not you have a significant other, YOU are worth loving, and you should celebrate having people in your life who love you! ❀

I love that I have a wonderful family and friends and all of you who read my blog and support my mission to share my LOVE of music with the world! ❀

Moving on to this week’s song, and in continuation of the topic of love, something else I love is Josh Groban’s voice! πŸ˜‰

This week, Josh Groban released a new music video for his cover of Robbie WIlliams’ “Angels”:

Lyrics:

I sit and wait
Does an angel contemplate my fate
And do they know
The places where we go
When we’re grey and old
‘Cause I have been told
That salvation lets their wings unfold
So when I’m lying in my bed
Thoughts running through my head
And I feel the love is dead
I’m loving angels instead
And through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I’m right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won’t break me
When I come to call, she won’t forsake me
I’m loving angels instead
When I’m feeling weak
And my pain walks down a one way street
I look above
And I know I’ll always be blessed with love
And as the feeling grows
She breathes flesh to my bones
And when love is dead
I’m loving angels instead
And through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I’m right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won’t break me
When I come to call, she won’t forsake me
I’m loving angels instead
And through it all she offers me protection
A lot of love and affection
Whether I’m right or wrong
And down the waterfall
Wherever it may take me
I know that life won’t break me
When I come to call, she won’t forsake me
I’m loving angels instead

I can’t say it enough. I absolutely LOVE his voice! I ALWAYS get the goosebumps when he sings. πŸ™‚

This video is so moving! I love the beautiful nature scenes in this video, and I love seeing all of the different types of love that exist in this video. ❀

I hope you have a wonderful Valentine’s Day! I hope you can celebrate being YOU and all the LOVE in your life! ❀
