Happy Valentine's Day!

Today we celebrate love and lovers with hearts, chocolate and flowers. On Valentine's Day last year, the Music Man and I sat in traffic for over an hour and when we finally stumbled into the restaurant the prune faced girl at the hostess stand informed us that the wait was three hours long. This year, we had our Valentine’s date a day early.
The Music Man teases me about stretching out special occasions. This year, Valentine’s Day is stretching out over three days. You think that’s good you should see how I handle my birthday!
In church yesterday the minister called the names of more than forty couples and asked them to stand up. They had all been married for fifty years or more. Talk about love, and not just the hearts and flowers kind. That kind of love loads the dishwasher so you can write and takes you to the hospital when you have a migraine and brings ice for your hand after you’ve had surgery, not to mention building a coop for the chickens. (You know who I’m talking about here, don’t you?)
I don’t know if we’ll live long enough to be married for fifty years, but if we do it’ll be thanks to real love. Of course, chocolate is always good too.
