Posts Tagged ‘Valentine’s Day’

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone.

Despite the fact that this day is traditionally reserved for romantic love, I think it’s a day where anyone can acknowledge love for anyone else ~ family members, dear friends, dogs and cats. Love is love, and today is the day for love.

I love my family and friends. It’s too bad I don’t have any cats or dogs because I have so much love to give and they’d probably appreciate the slobber I could give to them. (Or vice versa?) This post, however, is dedicated to my very own Husby.

We started dating in August. We were engaged to be married the following April. We married in October of that same year. It was a fifteen-month courtship that resulted in a happy, giddy, and very compatible relationship of over twenty-three years.

I remember a very special night at my apartment when Husby (then known as Cutie) first declared his love for me, and my heart soared to the moon and back.

You know how couples have “our song?” Well, the one played at the exact moment we discovered we were in love (because I played it on purpose) is what I believe to be “our song.” He doesn’t know the song unless he hears it, and I’m pretty sure he doesn’t think it to be “our song.” But it’s my song of us, so that’s what counts here.

Listen, with lyrics below.

 

 

I used to trust nobody, trusting even less their words
Until I found somebody, there was no one I preferred
My heart was made of stone, my eyes saw only misty gray
Until you came into my life girl, I saw everyone that way
Until I found the one I needed at my side
I think I would have been a sad man all my life
I think I see the light coming to me
Coming through me, giving me a second sight
So shine, shine, shine, shine, shine, shine
Shine, shine, shine
I used to walk alone, every step seemed the same
This world was not my home, so there was nothing much to gain
Look up and see the clouds, look down and see the cold floor
Until you came into my life girl, I saw nothing, nothing more
Until I found the one I needed at my side
I think I would have been a sad man all my life
I think I see the light coming to me
Coming through me, giving me a second sight
So shine, shine, shine, shine, shine, shine
Shine, shine, shine
I think I see the light coming to me
Coming through me, giving me a second sight
So shine, shine, shine, shine, shine, shine
Shine, shine, shine, shine, shine, shine
Shine, shine, shine, shine, shine, shine

So with that I encourage everyone to express your love to everyone today (dogs and cats included).  Shine on!  And when you show your love I quote my favorite movie line ever…

“That’s wonderful!  Go and love some more.”Maude (aka Dame Marjorie Chardin)

Be My Valentine

It’s Valentine’s Day.  I had a conversation with Charlotte yesterday and I must say, she knows how to do Valentine’s Day right.  Nice, considerate, thoughtful gestures of love she bestows not only on her husband but on her boys too.  Her big boys.  It’s all about love, she said, and she’s right.

If you don’t have a sweetheart this Valentine’s Day, don’t sit around moping.  Think about who you love (kids, parents, friends, siblings) and give them some of that love today.  Bake some cookies, hand-write a note, make a phone call.  If you do have a sweetheart, be sure to give him or her a big kiss and make sure they know how much he means to you.  It’s not about diamonds or fancy French restaurants.  It’s all about the love.  Share it, show it, and soak it up.

Have a happy Valentine’s Day!
