Real Love on Valentine’s Day


Doug working on shed

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.
