We were supposed to leave this morning for a four day trip to LA. My hubby has had the flu for seven days. We were up at 6am, showered, dressed and packed when he announced that he still wasn’t feeling well enough to make the trip. Because I knew we’d be rushed this morning, I gave him two Valentine Day cards last night along with a bottle of cologne. He liked everything but felt guilty that he hadn’t been able to get out and buy a gift for me. I know that. However today is our first Valentine’s Day together as a married couple and if I am honest I feel a little let down. There is something I need to embrace here- I’m afraid it’s that I am selfish. OUCH! After all, everyday should be a celebration of love, not just the 14th of Feb. And I’m going to let that be my take away. Love is much more than a Hallmark Card and flowers. As my friend Wendy says, anyone can do love together what really counts is doing life together. And so, I’m going with that.
