In Honor of Valentine's Day

Ahh, Valentine’s Day. This cartoon reminded me of a story the hubby and I read during a book study on marriage last Fall. I was reading aloud a chapter about husbands showing their wives love through gifts on special days. The author gave the example of a husband either buying an expensive gift or doing something like taking a romantic walk with her and picking up a rock to give to her later along with a poem or note about their time together. The author went on to say that years later, when she’s ninety-three and he’s been dead for a decade what do you think she’ll have on her mantel? At this point in the story my husband pipes up and says; “The rock she killed you with!” I couldn’t stop laughing.

Psst: If you're a regular reader and thinking this looks familiar it is--it's last year's Valentine's Day post. Hey, sometimes there's re-runs!

I have been an avid reader from the beginning and I did not remember this little story from last year. It was worth repeating and enjoying again. And yes it is OK to take a day off, especially Valentine's Day. Hope you had a great one!
