Happy Valentines Day





                                                         Valentines Day is the day for LOVE and for us to remember to show
                                                        the ones we love just that .
                                                      “ I Love and appreciate you.”
                                                          It’s so easy to forget in our busy lives to stop  
                                                    and say those little words.
                                                  Whenever I get mad  at my husband or we have a fight.
                                          …..and yes we do.
                                    ( like any couple)

                                           I step back and remind myself…..
                                         what would I do if he wasn’t there anymore?
                                               What if this was the last day, or minute that
                                              I could see him, talk to him, hold him?
                                               would I want to be fighting over something insignificant?
                                                   Over the years of being together you begin to realize that they are not always perfect….
                                        like you once thought
                                        they won’t always pick up their clothes off the floor or  organized, or remember
                                            to write out the bills  ( oh right, I do that)
                                                   but that’s ok because I’m far from perfect either.

                                          That’s what makes a good marriage. Knowing that person accepts you warts and all.
                                           If you are gentle, kind and giving of your feelings you can overcome any problems life throws at you.

                                       So on this Valentines Day it isn’t important that you go out
                                       to dinner to a fancy restaurant or that he buys you flowers
                                      or that you exchange presents at all.

                                           Just that you tell that person how much you love them....
and couldn't imagine life them.

                      That’s it!!!

                          Now Have a Wonderful Valentines Day!
                         (I think I have to call someone )

Awesome post Carole! I enjoyed it so much. It got me thinking... my husband and I have been married now for 38 yrs and we have seen a few things in our life, (hehe) but I am so glad we stuck it out and made a great life and learned from our rough spots. Pretty cool to be where we are today.
hugs to you...

As my mother always said..."Pick your battles".
Goodness knows if I started listing all C.D.'s faults, his list of mine would be longer.
Have a wonderful Valentine with the love of your life.

Is the snow finally beginning to melt there too?

Loved your photos. Actually, hubby never sends flowers. I would rather spend the money on something new for the house. Now that I've made room for more! Happy Valentines day!

Happy Valentines day Carole, to you and your sweetheart.
You are so right it is not the roses, chocolates or flowers on the 14th, but to be able to tell them how much you love them, is more important.

Hi Carole - Remember me? (LOL!!) I am just now crawling out of the Sacred Yarn Room where I have been all winter!

Such a beautiful post with words that ring so true. We should all tell the ones we love - that we love them - every day.



Excellent advice Carole! Hope your day was as awesome as you are!
