Whether you’re madly in romantic love or fulfilled without it, Happy Valentine’s Day. This morning was spent on the Valentine assembly line for Max and Little A. Max was looking for opportunities to serve as quality control for the candy. Little A’s cards had fairies and Max’s cards had Dr. Seuss characters. I put Dove chocolate hearts on them with little adhesive dots. My scrapping supplies are always coming in handy 🙂 I wish Valentine’s Day could always be like it is for kids their age. No heavy expectations. Just handing out candy and cards and reading cards that you get and eating the treats.
This morning I read about Kal and Edna Horine, a couple that has been married for 74 years. That’s almost three quarters of a century. I always like reading about and listening to people who have been married for a long time. I always come away with something to think about that can be applied to my life in general and my own marriage in particular.
I am a big fan of Valentine’s Day. A lot of people think its a big commercial scam, but I like chocolate and flowers and love so I’ll take all of them. I asked my husband what he thought about the holiday and while he says that he likes it, he thinks that people should show their love and appreciation for the special people in their lives everyday, not just one or two days a year. He is pretty thoughtful and I am thankful that for the past sixteen years, he’s been my valentine. I’m also thankful for my family and friends and the love I’ve received from them as well.
I hope everyone has a great day. Spring is not far away. I know we had snow this week, but still 🙂
