On what is their highest profile and busiest time of the year, florists and sellers of all things sweet said Valentine's Day business this year was a definite improvement over 2011. That was in line with forecasts from the National Retail Federation that Americans would spend $17.6 billion on Valentine-related items this year, up from $15.7 billion last year. The average person celebrating the holiday was expected to spend about $126, up more than 8% over last year's $116 and the highest amount in the survey's 10-year-history.

Paul M. Anderson GLENDALE -- Before a self-help group changed her life, Susie used to have her own holiday traditions. "I felt like I needed to climb under a rock after Halloween and stay there through the New Year and then go back under it for a short time around Feb. 14," Susie said. With Valentine's Day almost here, consumers are barraged with advertisements for that perfect gift for your lover. It's enough to make those who have trouble dealing with other people cringe.

"Roses are red; violets are blue. Sugar is sweet and so are you." Remember the first time you wrote that on a handmade red paper heart to give to your mother? Remember how clever you thought you were to think of it? And the card itself was a real work of art, wasn't it? The heart was kind of lopsided and the lacy doily was torn in a few places and the paste had sort of bled out from it, smearing the red part. Mom loved that little card and kept it in her handkerchief drawer for more than 60 years.

KIMBERLIE ZAKARIAN "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always perseveres. Love never fails." I Corinthians 13: 4-8a. With Valentine's Day approaching, it seems fitting to discuss love. Love is a gift God has given us to share unselfishly with others.

Shaking hips, cat calls, feather boas, blaring salsa music — no, this was not a raucous night club, it was a group of more than 60 seniors midday at the Adult Recreation Center celebrating Valentine’s Day. Dressed in strappy red numbers, high heels and jewelry amid red and pink decorations, there was little indication that this was the city’s senior center. Since it’s a leap year, women were asked to bring a date, and they did — they brought more women.
