This is a big change for me. I used to always want chocolate, the darker the better on Valentine's Day, as well as a stuffed animal. Being on the Path with you means I control those cravings and I now know that getting chocolate is not the same as getting love. To be blunt there are just too many stuffed animals in my house right now, too.
The White Chocolate Acolyte and I are spending the 13th together. We've ordered a heart shaped pizza from a local favorite called Mother Bear's with their regular sauce, pepperoni, cheddar cheese and apple sausage along with their bread sticks. That will be delivered around Noon. Before then I have a Saturday Sacrament to do for those of you who have put off your gift and treat buying until the last minute. So there is my chocolate for that day unless I feel like something else by the evening.
Tomorrow will be another Special Sacramental Review for Valentine's Day so make sure you come back and check it out.
I really want to hear how you are incorporating chocolate into your Valentine's Day whether you are single, coupled, casually dating, or part of a bigger household.
This morning I also received offerings from Island Angel Chocolates and Life So Sweet. We'll get to these wonderful offering in the forthcoming months.
Sisters and Brothers, may you too take the time to slowly appreciate what the Divine and human ingenuity have offered you in chocolate.
