Happy Valentine’s Day!

Dear Reader,

For the first time in my married life, I find myself separated from the lovely and talented Kathy on Valentine’s Day. This is an odd experience for me as I consider Valentines Day to be the third most holy day on the calendar. A lot of people ask me about that comment, why and exactly what I mean by it.

Like most modern holidays, Valentine’s Day has been overrun by crass commercialism. Many think that it was a holiday invented by the Greeting card industry but wikipedia tells a different story. Regardless of it’s origins, Valentine’s day has come to be a day of expressing your love for someone else.

In the US, our driven lifestyle means that a lot of important things get dropped by the wayside. I know I am guilty of ignoring a lot of important friendships and relationships in my life. (I really am a horrible friend) So when we set aside a day just to honor the one relationship in our lives that is, or should be, the most important then yes, I think we should take it very seriously.

Given the distance between us at the moment and the current economic situation, I did not get the lovely and talented Kathy a gift this year. Instead I wrote her the first of what I hope to be many poems to come this year.

So this year, besides a cheesy poem, my gift to Kathy are these promises.

  • I promise that I will spend today thinking about our relationship.I will think about the mistakes I’ve made and find ways to not make them any more. I think about the things (or maybe thing) I did right this year and try to do more things like that.
  • I promise to find a way to make you smile each day.
  • I promise to find ways to make you fall in love with me all over each and every day.

I love you Kathy.

Until next time,

Happy Valentines Day!

Dear Reader,

Happy Valentines Day!

If you’ve not sent your love a flower, a card, some chocolate or some silly whatnot, what are you waiting for? Here is a simple and dirt cheap idea.

Go to Target and buy a simple, card. It doesn’t have to be fancy but it does need to be blank inside. Then sit down, spend 5 minutes and write a simple love poem. If you can’t write poetry (and I contend that if I can do it, any man can) then just write what comes to your mind when you see your lover. As long as it’s from the heart, and doesn’t sound like Larry the Cable Guy wrote it, she will appreciate it.If you just can’t get started, visit my poetry site and steal one of mine. Feel free to modify it to make it your own.

Now, go find her and give it to her. Bonus points if you take time off from work and take it to her at work or at school! (Seriously, make her feel special in front of her friends, I guarantee she will love that!)

Until next time,
(l)(k)(bunny)
