…the heart fluttering giddiness has been replaced by a different kind of love. The ever popular, 365 days of practical love. The love that picks up dry cleaning, remembers to replace toilet paper rolls, hangs up towels and delivers that first cup of coffee in the morning… thoughtfulness that is sometimes taken for granted.
Years ago the Hub and I decided the need for a token gift and card because it was February 14th was unnecessary. We’re secure (and comfortable) in our relationship and besides, we’ve never been big participators in the gift giving department.
So today, Mr. Wonderful failed me. He stealthily came home after work sneaking this into the house… How dare he?
This beautiful bouquet has pulled at my heart-strings while taunting me all evening. The Hub has insisted this could NOT possibly be a Valentine since today is the 13th. Nice try buddy… I’m not buying that pathetic stab at logic.
However I did do something which does not come naturally for me. I graciously accepted the gift of thoughtfulness… and as a token of my love, I will gladly be in charge of our morning coffee tomorrow. Happy Valentine’s Day Sweetie!
