Thankful Thursday ……and on this Thursday before Valentine’s Day, I am so thankful for my sweet hubbie and for the fact that I won’t have candy all over my bedroom floor! Let me explain. I once heard a valentine story on the radio..…seems when this lucky gal awoke there was a sign beside her bed telling her to follow the chocolates – and, sure enough a trail of Hershey Kisses led from the bedroom to the kitchen, where coffee was waiting, and then onto the living room where flowers were waiting as well as a card which read (are you ready for this?)…”I’ve kissed the ground you walk on!!” I promise, I am not making this up!
Anyways, there was a time when I would have retold this story to my hubbie and then sat back..waiting – just sure, he would be inspired to create a magical moment for me just as romantic and creative…or maybe even more so! And, guess what? It never happened! Shocking, I know.
Fast forward a few years….and I have learned something. Love him as I might, my darling hubbie is not hopelessly romantic! Loves me – yes. Wants me to know it – yes. Sentimental even – yes. Laying Hershey kisses out on our floor – NO. And the most amazing thing is – he never has been. But what he is….is dependable and faithful! The same qualities that I loved way back when – are the same that describe him today. That dependability and faithfulness which I have learned to depend on, lean on and sometimes, even clutched onto for my very life……those are the qualities that I so love!! Valentine’s Day is not about trying to make him someone or something that he is not…but remembering and appreciating all the things I so love about “my valentine”!!
Happy Hearts Day, Sweetie!
