Sometimes Love Hurts!

I heard a new term on Valentine's Day yesterday,
and my heart leaped with joy!!
AT LAST, we have recognition that Valentine's Day can be
a difficult one for those who find themselves alone, or single and
without a love interest, or maybe hurting from a recent break up.
YES, many do have families, but STILL,
Valentine's Day seems to magnify the "alone-ness" all the more
as couple's are seen holding hands, kissing, exchanging gifts, etc.,
and the result of this often brings on depression.

So, I say Hallelujah for S.A.D. and decided to offer
a tribute to the day with my post and my card!!  :)

This sweet little image comes from Mo Manning at

One of the reasons I think I was drawn to this precious image

is because I am an RN (though now retired),
so always looking for cute "Nursey" images.
Look at that adorable face!!

Mo's done a beautiful job on this piece of art, hasn't she?
