My Valentine

My husband hand-delivered a big bouquet of rainbow roses to me today. White, peach, coral, yellow, fuchsia, and cream with pink tips. They’re lovely, and I’m so proud to display them at my desk. The ladies I work with swoon over what a romantic he is, and the guys jestingly razz him, telling him to stop making them look bad.

February is a very busy month in our lives, and Valentine’s Day is a day we’ve always mutually agreed to downplay. But my dear husband always does something to make me feel special. It’s the kind of guy he is.

I’m not the wife I could be or even should be for him. In the busy-ness of our lives I sometimes forget to be romantic. I feel bad about this habit, and am trying to change. He doesn’t know how much he means to me, and that’s my fault.

So on this day, dear Hub, I just want to say I love you. I always have, I always will. Thank you for being my protector and my hero. Thank you for making me feel special, even when I’m not. There will never be another you. There will never be another us. There will never be another, period.

Happy Valentine’s Day.

The last time I got flowers...Oh! It has been a looong time! LOL I'm beginning to feel old. LOL Anyway, I miss my bird. I would usually buy him a Valentine's treat. I miss that bird. He's in heaven. I can still wish him a Happy Valentine's Day. Sweet post. Thanks for sharing the picture!

This is precious, clew. Flowers here, too, though my hubby is away at a conference tonight. :-(

I'm definitely a sucker for romance. Ah...

That's great that, even married and busy, you can both still find the time to let each other know how special you are. Happy Valentine's Day to you both.

He makes you feel special because you are. I tip the big white to your husband. And I don't mind if you tell him that.

Happy Valentine's Day! How nice of your guy to buy you gorgeous roses. Even if you downplay the day, it must be so nice to feel loved!
