For the final day of my Valentine’s series I wanted to put on something for that oh so special date night out or in. It has become so easy to get lost in all the commercial hype of Valentine’s day. Chocolates and flowers have seemed to take the place of hugs and kisses. Of course I am not saying that this is true for everyone, and even if it’s not you, even if you are one that remembers how it is two people’s love that should be celebrated, take an extra moment to tell that special someone, and even your family members that you love them. I myself am even guilty of sometimes rushing through the days so quickly. So to my husband who will read this at some point today… I love you, our family is my world and I am so glad I married my best friend.
“I Love You” by Roy Croft “I love you, not only for what you are, but for what I am when I am with you. I love you, not only for what you have made of yourself, but for what you are making of me. I love you, for the part of me that you bring out. I love you, for putting your hand into my heaped-up heart, and passing over all the foolish, weak things that you can’t help dimly seeing there, and for drawing out, into the light, all the beautiful belongings that no one else had looked quite far enough to find. I love you, because you are helping me to make of the lumber of my life, not a tavern, but a temple. Out of the works of my every day, not a reproach, but a song. I love you, because you have done more than any creed could have done to make me good, and more than any fate could have done to make me happy. You have done it without a touch, without a word, without a sign. You have done it by being yourself. Perhaps that is what being a friend means, after all.”
