Happy Valentine’s Day!
It’s Happy I love You Day!
I used to hate Valentines Day. It was a day that I often felt the loneliest. It was a day that seemed to send out a message by Hallmark and the world that if you don’t have a love on this day… you’d better feel sorry for yourself.
I remember in University, having a boyfriend… and so excited that I would have a Valentine… only to be so disappointed that day. He didn’t get Valentines. He spent much of the day with his buddies… and spent a few minutes literally with me at the end of the day.
I was so sad.
Today, Valentines… it’s just a day. I have a Valentine every day. He is sweet, thoughtful, deliciously handsome, romantic… ok, I’ll stop, as I don’t want to make you jealous!
This weekend, I had cramps from hell. Saturday night I woke up, feverish and wishing for death. I had such pain, all I could do was lay there and wish for death.
(Yes, I’ll be calling my doctor this morning).
I hurt all weekend.
I was laying in bed yesterday afternoon, after coming back from taking Sammy and Zach to the ski hill… while the others were at hockey.
I could hear Sanj in the kitchen.
He was doing the dishes.
I love a man that does dishes. I love a man that does dishes without even asking.
He knew I was cramping and stressing about being prepared for homeschooling in the morning. (That starts in 45 minutes and counting…)
That was a great Valentines right there… dishes and tidying.
I love my Valentine. Not just today… but every day.
Happy Valentines, my dearest!
