I'm late and I apologize and the reason why brings an entirely new twist on what Valentines Day means to me this year. You see, there's a couple in our family who are having difficulties right now. A couple who have been together for nearly twenty years have decided to go their separate ways. Possibly too much info here, but it made me realize just how lucky I am and how things might have been different for my husband and I.
Love, that mysterious, wonderful, amazing emotion is so fragile and so much work that to some it can be impossible to maintain or even find. Long term, it's even harder. For those of you who have been coupled for more than 25 years, or even longer, you know what I mean. You can love your partner to death, but find it impossible to live with them. So very sad.
Yet, for those of us who have it right, it's the most amazing thing in the world. To know you've found the right one, and that nothing could change that, it's pretty special. I look at my man, and I see him as he was at seventeen, and I know he'll always be that sexy young man for me. He may not be as slim now, he may not have the long dark hair, but he's still my sexy stud. He's my Valentine in every possible way. How special is that.
So, I'm going to do something this Valentine's Day that I have never done on this day before. I'm going to pamper the heck out of him. To us, it's usually just another day. We've always had our own ways of telling each other how special we find each other, on any day we like. But, this year, I'm going to wake him with breakfast in bed, and I'll be dessert. Or perhaps he will. I haven't got the details worked out yet. LOL The entire day, I'm going to spend showing him how much he means to me, how very special our love is.
I'd love to know if anyone has special plans for their lover this coming February 14th. Do you have flowers planned, a dinner out, something sexy and satin, or something else?
