I love that I started this post.
I really enjoy everyone's answers so far, but the two that will change how I feel about the day are Tina's and Virginia's.
Tina, the random acts of kindness day is a very cool idea! I will steal it from your friend and enjoy thinking about the day's "secret" meaning to me.
And Virginia, you've made me think twice about taking anything for granted -- even something they call a "Hallmark holiday." I realize from reading your post that with this, like with so many things, it is what we make it. The vision of you and your husband at that sweet, special table is truly what Valentine's Day should be. I'm counting today as a lesson learned. Thank you.
