This change happened one valentines day when I'd prepared a lovely meal, set the table up with the centre piece of a dried flower arrangement hubby had bought me the previous year, this probably under duress but bought none-the-less. I placed the loving written card I'd bought for him on the beautifully laid table and waited! When hubby arrived home, he told me he was going for a drink with the boys, well you can imagine what followed a bit of a row, torn up card along with disarranged flowers!! I laugh to think about it now, it seems so futile with the years that have passed since then, the support shown, the thoughtful presents bought, the occasions attended when not wanted to, the wonderful dinners prepared and cooked, the partnership with a loved one. These all really do put things into perspective for me.
Valentines day shouldn't be just one day, everyday should be treated as a special one and I'm happy and blessed to have that. Someone who has never wanted me to work (ok 5 kids do create plenty of work anyway), never moans about housework (maybe sometimes - lol), cooks, works hard everyday, the list goes on. This is not a one-way street, I'm the one who's cutting the grass when he's cooking dinner or running errands for his business when he's busy.
So today just like any other day both hubby and I will be plodding on with our normal activities whatever they may be, happy and safe with the knowledge tomorrow, and the next day ...etc... will be filled with similar love inspired actions like cinema nights, impromptu dining out,
I hope you are lucky in love like me, and can savour each and every day.
The little things in life are the important things.
I wanted to share some photos of hubby and I, but going through them there are some many to chose from because we are so often together..... here's a few of my favourites.
Eldest Daughter's wedding... how proud we both were.
One of our many weekend trips to L'Escala.
Week in Lindos, Rhodes check out what I wore here.
Always by my side through the good times and the bad times is truly what love is all about
"Don't wait till Valentine's day to show you care"
Bye for today.
