So tomorrow is Valentine's Day. When you're married your friends always want to know if your husband sent you flowers. When you're not married your friends want to know if your boyfriend popped the question. I've never been able to give them the answer they really wanted to hear, even though I've been in both situations. My ex never sent me flowers. Every year for 28 years I had to go out and buy my own candy, but at least I knew I'd get some. Last year was my first Valentine's Day with Ray and although it was very romantic, it was too soon for him to be popping any questions. My ex got engaged this past Christmas Eve and he'll be marrying his insignificant other at the end of the month. Ray's ex is living with her boyfriend and she just had a baby a few months ago. I guess the only way Ray and I could top that would be to win the lottery. Or announce that we were selling the house, quitting our jobs and leaving next week to sail around the world, stopping in several remote locations where we planned on volunteering our time to teach orphaned eagles to fly, and starving villagers to grow their own crops. Or... we could just remain as in love as we are today. Actions really do speak louder than words. So tomorrow, no matter what you get, where you go or how you celebrate it, just remember to take a few minutes to tell your special someone how much you love them and how happy you are. And don't forget all the wonderful things they have done for you, not just tomorrow, but all year long. You can say it with flowers, or chocolate or diamonds... just make sure you say, "I love you!"
Happy Valentine's Day!!
