So another Valentines Day is upon us. I kept joking with Amber yesterday that today is such a pressure filled day. We walked into the grocery store and just like with any holiday, the entrance is plastered with all the flowers, candy, and everything else to go with the day. But, what is this day really all about. I was listening to a radio show earlier in the week where people were calling in talking about their disdain for Valentines Day and how they will not celebrate. This was mostly women at that. In some way in surprised me, but in some way it didn’t. Many people have become so disenchanted with the day and don’t care for it. I see this day a tremendous opportunity for many couples. It can be day for reconciliation or to rekindle that spark in their marriage that may have been lost after so many years together.
As for me and my wife, it is just another day to express how much she means to me and how thankful I am that she is my bride. I take the opportunity every day to tell her that I love her and I most certainly mean. Without her, I would be lost. She has been by my side through everything we have gone through in life and supported me through everything and I am so blessed and thankful that the Lord has brought her to me and we have had so many years together. Everyday we are together, I grow to love her more and more. I love spending my days with her when I get to work from my house and then just hanging out in the evenings. She is every part of me that is good.
With all of that said, Happy Valentines Day to everyone, but especially for my beautiful wife, Amber. You are my life, my love, and my best friend and I thank God for every day we have to spend together!
