1 Corinthians 13:4-7, NIV: "Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres."
Love (and Valentine's day) is finding a lost dog, an unscheduled doctor's appointment on a Saturday, waiting for the furnace repair guy, eating dinner by candlelight in the kitchen with people who spill rice all over the place, playing hide and seek in the house, revelling in the loot contained in a shoebox mailbox, winning at tickle fights, and remembering that one day (too)soon, it really will be a romantic dinner for two.
Happy Valentine's Day to my Sweetheart. Thanks for the fabulous gift for my finger, the two wonderful ones to hold in my arms, and getting to spend every day loving you.
