If you don’t know what today is, and you’re in a relationship of any kind, then you’re in trouble because it’s . . .
Every day we should tell our special someone exactly how we feel about them, how our lives wouldn’t be complete without them, how much we cherish them. I can’t imagine my life without my husband being a part of it. He caught my eye while we were in high school. Didn’t start dating until later, then we just sort of ran around together whenever he was home on leave from the Army. Eventually the friendship grew into something stronger. Now here we are, happily married for 39 years. (My, where DID the time go?!)
A long time ago we stopped being ubber creative with Valentine’s Day. (Pretty much been there, done that.) We give each other a card or two, maybe some chocolate plus dinner and a movie. Nothing super exciting, but enough. At least it makes me happy.
What do you give your significant other? Better yet, what do you like to get? Do you make a big production out of Valentine’s Day . . . dinner, flowers, an expensive gift? That’s something we never did, the expensive gift thing. When we were first married, out of the blue he’d show up with a little gift because it caught his eye and he thought I’d like it. Nothing big, just a token of his love. So when February 14th rolled around, there really wasn’t the need. You know, I still have every single one of those little mementoes tucked away.
Now that the snow is melting and we can get out of our driveways again, do you have big plans for today? A special restaurant? Flowers? Chocolate? Do you acknowledge the day early, or wait until evening? Big production or small?
I told you my love story, now tell me yours.
