What Is Love: Valentine Post #4

So for my fourth post, I would like to talk about another kind of love--ROMANTIC LOVE.  So obviously this post will be all about this guy.



We have celebrated a few Valentine's Days together, but I have to say we don't go all out on that day.  Frankly, I don't think we need to.  We usually do go to dinner and exchange cards and candy (there MUST be candy--and I always get flowers.  (Of course, since I have gotten to be a little bit tighter with money, I have told Allan to please not order flowers from the florist--they are just TOO EXPENSIVE.  He still brings me flowers but they usually are from the Grocery store or Costco, which is just fine with me ; )

I sure love this man.  This year we won't be together for Valentine's Day.  When I left for Utah, I decided to give him 14 envelopes--one for the first 14 days of February (as well as a card for Valentine's Day and the last few days of January). Each envelope has a note about something I love about him--things like the way he loves the family, the way he supports me in everything I do, his positive attitude, his sense of humor, that he does the grocery shopping, his commitment to the Lord, etc.  And, as I told him, I loved that coming up with a list was so easy because there are so many wonderful things about him that I love.  And I ended with:  "I loved the fact that you asked me to marry you."  I told him I was so glad that when he knew he was to marry me, he didn't shove the thought aside and say, "Oh, my goodness, no way, NOT HER."

We have a great life and I am so blessed that we are on this journey together.   I am so glad he is always there for me to lean on--even when he isn't physically right there.

It is wonderful to be married to your best friend!!!!
