Before I continue with this post I first want to thank all who have left comments and been so good to me on my birthday. I am sort of strange about my birthday in that I don’t like to make a big deal out of it but I feel bad when I’m forgotten…does that make sense? Bottom line: thank you everyone for make it a special day! My wife made it especially nice the day before my birthday by setting up a dinner at Jake’s with our friends Jeff and Stephanie…it was a great time! Okay V-Day, well what can I say? Wisdom has been the greatest gift to open on this day. Back during dating days it was about making something happen that didn’t always work out…high stress kept it many times from being fun. Now I’m with the woman I love and we let things flow a lot more organically. We go and enjoy each other and keep the stress low…it really works to make a great day and today was no exception. We started giving the kids their hearts from us. Gabby of course was first up to enjoy her treats. Lovely and I then went out and spent the day together just letting things happen as they came along…it was truly enjoyable. Starting things out with Starbucks didn’t hurt. We took some pictures together in a photo-booth which was fun and shopped and hung out together before heading home. Gabby wanted a rose so badly that we stopped and got her some little miniature roses. Better than some big long stemmed ones that die all too quickly. Back in the day I felt the need to fit someone else’s idea of romantic now we let the love between us dictate our course…oh how much love that! I hope your day was blessed but whether or not it was remember that today is just a day not the rest of your life…and love is way too big to fit into one day alone! All that we know of love pales in the light of the love of Christ who loves us so much He died and rose again for all. God bless and keep you all.
