Sometimes Valentine’s Day means getting flowers, candy, and all dressed up. Sometimes it means letting your husband work on the shed because he is gone from the house 14 hours a day during the week to provide for his family, and shed-completion is relaxing therapy for him.
It has taken more than a few years for me to be okay with this.
If we keep in mind that Valentine’s Day is simply a man-made Hallmark holiday, we can love our husbands the same today as we do the rest of the year. He’s not a different person today than he was yesterday or than he will be tomorrow.
Happy Valentine’s Day, Doug. Here’s to 33 1/2 years and many more holidays together.
